    If anyone can help me identify some of them I would appreciate it.

    The top left one in the main photos has Mark V Made in USA Imported briar on it.
    Next one on left says Savoy Imported Briar, I think it is a Dr. Grabow
    Third one says Italy Imported Briar
    Last one on left has Alpha Corona

    The right side:
    Thermofilter Imported Briar
    Tom Howara Imported Briar It has a huge bowl
    Jobey Band 200
    Duke Dr. Grabow Has a blue spade on the bit
    Last one has Dr. Grabow Tru-Grain 6010 Pre-smoked

    Wish I could help identify, but I'm no good with that. I love the poker and the rhodie, though.

    David, the Italy imported briar could
    be a Savinelli second. Looks a LOT
    like an old De Luxe i had.

    I bought him that pipe 16 years ago for Xmas. Of course I knew nothing of pipes, so I didn't pay attention to what type it was. It has no other markings and it smokes really nice. It was the first pipe I ever smoked. I paid 49.99 for it in 1994. Don't worry I remember the price I have an affinity with numbers. For some reason I remember them easily. I still know my locker combination in high school from 1981. I'm a nerd like that lol.
