    Peaky Blinders Pipe

    Any fans of this show? Whilst looking at Blakemar Briars site, noticed he's selling a pot shape. He was actually commissioned to make a pipe for the actor Sam Neil. He played a rather nasty policeman, very well as I recall. So, if you've seen the show & wondered what pipe he was smoking, now you know. A blakemar medium pot.

    I smoke one of these pots made by Mike Blakemar - but I have never seen the show, it have never been on our shores.

    How do they manage to make them so cheap?

    Hello,

    I've never seen the series, but found via Google that the picture above seems to be from Series 1 Episode 4 - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2461634...r/rm2154654208

    Might be worth seeking out, but I haven't found it in a quick YouTube search.

    I've also been to the Blakemar Briars website to see the pipe. It's a very nice shape, even though normally pots that a favourite shape for me.

    As to pricing, I have a number of Blakemars and find them well worth the money. Even the cheapest, Matador, smokes nice, just the mouthpiece greens faster than other pipes. (Later pipes of that range have acrylic stems). More expensive ones may have minor flaws that I don't mind, like a few light scratches in the stem that could have used more polishing. So I suppose he can make his prices by choosing materials accordingly and by limiting the time spent on each pipe. In some I tasted the bowl coating for the first smokes in others I didn't. All in all, I think, you get decent smoking pipes there even at 30-40.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    I do not know but the one pot I smoke is a 39 one. I often smoke it in the morning when right out of bed and before doing anything else.
    I think I smoke about 60 of his pipes and have about 45 in my unused stock - its my brain there is something wrong with- in quality from 39 to
    straight grains and two very fine hand made and one of them can be seen on his Facebook page. I have done business with him in many years,
    he is a gentleman.

    If you're happy with them Jorgen then they must be good value. Next time I'm in the UK I might just get one. No point in ordering one from here as customs will nab it.

    One of his 'Bull Caps' would suit you, Crawford. His 'Sir Douglas' take some beating as well mind. Perhaps a 2 pipe purchase is warranted?

    I do like the Bull Cap the most I have to say. He does have a nice selection of pipes.
