    Comoy's Grand Slam

    Got this one, last week. A lovely old billiard which was very lightly smoked, by its previous owner. I've got the same shape (64) in the 'Everyman' but the stinger in that one is fixed. Nothing special to look at, but those of you who have an old English billiard can attest to how well they smoke. With or without a stinger.

    That's a lovely grained pipe Simon....wishing you many happy smokes.

    My 182 Barbic billiard - a Comoy's make by all accounts - came with a stinger. No idea if it comes out or not as I gave up trying in case I buggered it up. In any event it smokes just great with it in so remain it shall. In my very limited experience small bowl pipes smoke much better with them out.

    Very fine pipe, indeed, Simon. I often wondered what the Grand Slam stinger looked like. Any idea of the pipe's age? I believe the Grand Slam was first introduced in the '20s.
