    I must confess those bamboo shanks grow on you. Sixten Ivarsson knew what he was doing.
    I can't rule out that I might buy one more... or a couple more... or...

    I have another 86, given to me by DW back in 1998 and they are great-looking examples of what Sixten Ivarsson could do with a lump of briar. I do know that he didn't make it himself but he designed it.
    It must be possible to find a better 86, should you be interested and at a reasonable price too.

    Oh, I'm sure. This is probably a substandard item that was sent to the U.S. market at the request of an American e-tailer who is no longer in business. I had a couple of other howlers from him, many years ago.

    Hello Jesper,

    Congrats with the addition of these Stanwell's to your collection.

    I hope hey bring you many enjoyable smoking hours.

    By the way, the prices you paid are very cheap, special for the bamboo shanked pipe.

    I am a great fan of bamboo shanked pipes. And I really should like to buy a Stanwell for such a price.

    Thank you very much, Huub.
    I bought the pipes from a pipe friend who restores pipes and sells them very cheap so that he has his expenses covered. He's not out to make a fortune.
    He knows that I collect Stanwells and always shows me his latest offers before he puts them up for general sale and that's mighty nice of him, I'd say.
