Wow that pipe looks less like it belonged to a military man and more like it served several tours on the front all by it's self.This is such a cute little guy. The chamber is so small I can’t even get my finger in it. Not sure how I’ll pack it. For now I’m just cleaning. I don’t know much about Willards. I hear it is related to military men.
I love my little pipe. A half smoke is better then one would assume it would be. And yeah a coin or flake will last much longer in one of those little things. If the bowl is as small as mine then I suggest the reamer part of a Czech tool be used as a very careful and odd tamper.That's a handsome little cooker. It looks a lot like the rusticated Royalton apple that Dr. Grabow makes now, except for the stinger. I have one stinger pipe, a Kaywoodie Drinkless, that smokes really well despite the screw-stem stinger, and it is easy and quick to clean. With extra small bowls, remember you can double or triple the length of a smoke with flake, coin, plug or rope cut tobacco, for more like a medium size pipe length smoke. Great job on restoring that fine little briar.
