    It is unlikely there will be English pipes of this quality in the future.
    I wouldn't be too sure about that. Kennedy Barnes is making pipes again.

    Gorgeous pipe Chris! Congrats!

    Thanks, Jesse! I do love a high-grade 'right' Upshall. Interesting that the seller has had it, unsmoked in its box, for many years.

    In which regard, are you planning to smoke that drop-dead-gorgeous Ken Barnes pipe, or will it be a 'glass-case-on-the-mantelpiece job'?

    More seriously, it is great to hear that Ken Barnes is making pipes again. Judging by that pipe of yours that Dave showed, the absence of his past partner (Barry Jones) has not affected the product.

    Is Ken living in England (he does not seem an 'LA-type'), and does he have a shop/website to show/sell his creations?

    Ma pipe, elle est arrivee!!!

    Looks just like the (excellent) seller's pics. She will get broken in (so to speak) at the weekend, so I'm not tempted to keep her as an ornament!

    Never thought you would do that for a second Chris.
