I picked up a newer production estate fro 45 bucks. I have cleaned it with alcohol and will probably smoke it soon. When I took it to the garage to clean it up, I knocked the box it came in off a table and chipped the left side of the bit. No biggy, just took some fine 1500 sand paper and took the sharp edge off the break.

Any one have one of the post 1980's production ones? How does it smoke? How does it smoke compared to the older ones?

Looks like a nice pipe. How do you date it? Is there a guide for dating Caminettos? I have a few that were passed down from my dad. None have the metal band that yours has. I don't know what year they are. All are good smoking pipes.

I have Caminettos before that date, and a couple from the mid-'80s. I never detected a difference in how they smoke.

I used the Briar Blues website but dating with the newest stamping, I think they state what year via the code but I'm not sure. I looked mine up and I have to go back and figure it out again.

I've got a newer Caminetto business that smokes great but I've never tried one before the mid 80's.
Nice looking pipe. I hope it smokes great.

I just pulled out my rather large bent dublin Caminetto Mustache Business from 2012 after a long rest, she smoke great. With a nearly 2" deep bowl, I only smoke this pipe when I have some serious time to dedicate to a smoke. That being said, I always love the way this pipe smokes.
No experience with any other pipes from this maker, but love the one I have.
