    Stanwell 96

    I was having a browse on Etsy last week, and found this pipe. An old Stanwell, Reg. era, Sixten Ivarsson designed shape 96, "the potato sack". It arrived yesterday. The pipe is "all there" without any damage, or wear to either the "Hand Cut" stem, or stummel. Weighs 36 grams. Should clean up perfectly. Not really supposed to be buying any more pipes, but I love the old Stanwells.

    $38.50 all in, talk about a deal!

    That is a terrific bargain, Dave. Congrats! I'm sure that it will be stunning once you get it cleaned up.

    Lovely shaped pipe at a super price. Will look even greater once you've finished working on it.

    The weekend project pipe came out really well! The pipe was in excellent condition. Gave it its first smoke last night when I finished, a perfect smoker. Nice cross grain on the front of the bowl, and a lovely, rich plummy/brown (the original) stain color.
