The first is a Karl Erik. I have several pipe by this maker and like the lightness and craftsmanship. This one cam up on Ebay and I bid and lost the bid. The winning bidder pulled his bid so it came to me. Cost $12 and I think I got a deal on it.

The second one I got as a challenge. It is an old timer. Not sure of the dates on it but I have checked the silver makers mark and the name and know that it is English made early 1900s. It is in rough shape and looks like the previous owner was a bit of a beaver - chewed the stem to a stick. I look forward to this one as I can see it joining some of my other early 1900s pipes as a real gem.
