    Bruno Nuttens - Cumberland Bing

    I just pulled the trigger on this Nuttens Bing Cumberland #9, a rendition of the Bing Crosby Merchant Service pipe. This is a Sťrie Heritage pipe. For this line, Nuttens finishes by hand stummels acquired from Saint-Claude that were turned decades ago from the old briar that was available at that time. The stems are then handmade from ebonite, cumberland or acrylic rods. The reduced labor involved in finishing these stummels lowers the price considerably. Bruno Nuttens is a Belgian pipemaker long established in France. (Seller's photo, of course.)

    What a great-looking version of The Merchant. Congratulations with your buy.
    Mr. Crosby would have liked that pipe, I'm sure.

    Just beautiful, Ed. Congrats on a classy pipe indeed! The birds eye, the shape and the stem all combine together in a most excellent way. For those interested, here's the link to Nuttens Pipes website for more great examples: http://nuttenspipes.com/en/index.htm

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    That pipe is longer than my nose. Smart looking style.

    That's a sharp looking pipe, Paul. Congrats!

    I wasn't familiar with Bruno Nuttens before seeing this post. His approach with the Heritage pipes is similar Trever Talbert's Ligne Bretagne series.

    Yes, one of the finest examples of the MS Bing, indeed. And I've been looking for one for years now. That's what I told Bruno!

    I just found out about his site yesterday, thanks to an FB post. There it was, the Old Groaner's iconic briar just staring at me. And trigger pulled.
