You don't see a or of talk about on here. This one was sitting on Mkelaw-pipes.com for about two months and the price seemed reasonable so I pulled the trigger. Thoughts on the brand?

Rinaldo is a real champ. It's hard to narrow down a favorite pipe, but it would most likely be my Rinaldo bent bulldog. It has never given a bad smoke. I have five in total. All are well executed, proportions are excellent, mouthpieces are just right and they all smoke great. As far as I'm concerned, they are the equal of Castello.

I have two Rinaldo Triads - one bent and one straight - and they are very well made and enjoyable to smoke. I think Rinaldo is often overlook because its a relatively new company that started in 1987.

@hauntedmyst What are the other stampings on your pipe?

I recently scored a couple of Rinaldo estate pipes cheap on eBay. My good buddy told me about the brand and that they’re great pipes. He wasn’t lying. After a good cleaning on both, the very first smoke out of each was better than many of the pipes I already have. I am a big fan now.

Not in the market myself, but that's an attractive traditional pipe. So, who sells them online or otherwise? I don't remember them at SP, PC, Iwan Ries, etc.

SPC has had them for a long time.

chasing', I checked them out, very handsome, and SP has a plentiful selection. With their inventory, it is easy to miss stuff, or that's my disclaimer.
