Bitte: put your location in your Profile.
Why: It will save time for others as to where you live when you mention local stores, weather, tobacco prices, availability, regulations, location of photos, wildfires, air quality, etc. In many instances that saves time for those who read your posts, and for you in not having to reply to inquiries. .
Under your avatar, (top right, left most of three symbols) you choose "Account Details", which brings up "My Account". "My Location" is halfway down. Whatever you're comfortable with- town, city, county, state. province, etc.
You might also find some useful information in the Ken Barnes Posts section above the forum page. Ken trained at Charatan, which was managed by his father. He later went on to co-found James Upshall with Barry Jones, Charatan's head carver.Hello Friends
just bought a Charatans Pipe "Extra".
A lovely Bent which is stamped only on left side:
On stem the "C" runs in the "P" and is thin/ stem is the old one (no double comfort or saddle...)
Any known infos about this pipe welcome, because I only found one other Charatan stamped same way,
but the other owner has no helpful info about it.
I only know "Extra" as special mark for extra size on right side, but never saw this as a quality-level on left side.
Thanks to all and stay healthy

There are two pdf documents, one for Charatan and one for Upshall, which contain Ken's posts over a period of several years. There's a lot of information to be found there that is not duplicated anywhere else.
