    Very nice Dave! If you want to clean out the crud from the rings, use some light gauge fishing line, wrapped into the bead line. That does a nice job and doesn't damage the bead line itself (like a blade edge, etc. might).

    Well, some information about The Exmoor Pipe from Jon Guss. His comment in a thread about a shape 283 (that I tried to buy) that is now in the posession of Al Jones (riff raff); it's in good hands.

    I know very little about the Exmoor, but can tell you two things. First, the Exmoor was introduced quite a long time ago and apparently had a fair bit of longevity; it appears in various trade directories of brands from the early 1920s through the very late 1950s. Second, it was priced around the mid to lower end of the ordinary line of Comoys. An ad in 1930, for example, prices it at 7/5; the same ad priced the Par Excellence at 12/6, the Norfolk at 10/6, and the Everyman at 5/-. Looking at price lists published in Tobacco World's annual booklet, the Exmoor only appeared once in the issues I have access to, in 1938. In that year it was priced at 6/6. Above it were nine other models (ranging from 7/6 to 21/-), below it were eight models (ranging from 2/6 to 5/6).

    Oh, I love these / 6 pipes. I have one with a 7/6 label inside the bowl. I do not think I will ever smoke it.
