    Two New Stanwells

    I'm definitely a recidivist pipe buyer...

    Shape 49 Reg Era, an "old school" Sixten Ivarsson design, and one I've never actually seen offered before. When I say "old school" I mean the style of shapes Ivarsson was making in the 1950's based on the classic English shapes.

    And a shape 189, designed by S.Bang. I missed out on a smooth version earlier this Summer, but I payed much less for this sandblasted example.

    Two very nice looking pipes. I hope that you find them both excellent to smoke.

    The S.Bang pipe arrived only moments ago. It's in excellent condition, just goung to need some minor sanding on the stem. Tobacco chamber has a distinctly "flowery" smell, so it's getting the iso stuff and soak detox.

    Just finished giving this pipe's stem its final polish. I was taking pictures, but the battery on my camera died. I've been smoking this pipe since basically when I bought it, and it's a very good smoker, now it just looks better!
