    Pre Filter Savinelli Lines

    Hello, Everyone I pick up a Savinelli 121 Capri Root that is pre-filter that I really enjoy smoking. Everything about the pipe the rustication, the shape, the draw. But, aside from it smoking great, it seems that the shape has drawn me in. It has a vulcanite stem and is before their filter...

    Charatan Lane Era Supreme Extra Large Free Hand

    Here’s and odd ball that I think might be appreciated ‘round these parts. The stem sadly is a replacement- but I do know that it was made by Julius Vesz here in Toronto. So what do you all think... it’s a fun one :) (Crossing fingers that Mr. Burns weighs in one this one)

    Lane Era Charatan Double Comfort Stem Restoration

    Hello all I am working on a Lane Era Freehand Charatan Executive right now and it’s a beautiful pipe. But, for the life of me I cannnot get the oxidization from out of the creases in the double comfort stem. I am trying to do everything as lightly as possible. I’ve tried micro mesh to no avail...

    Hello everyone I’ve recently acquired a collection of a few nice pipes. Some of which I’m sure will make their way on to these boards. To learn about them I have read Pipedia, Pipephil, these threads, and lots of blogs... this pipe doesn’t seem to line up as far as stamping and stem goes. I’m...
