    Do you have the pipe? Any markings? Or are you just trying to track down something like it?

    I do not have the pipe. Its in the advertisement for Tinderbox's 1928 Reserve. I contacted them to see if they knew, but they did not :dunno:

    Welcome to PSF Chris! That's a fine looking pipe there, the stem color nicely offsets the rusticated bowl. If you'd like to have one exactly like that pipe, there's several forum members that can do one just for you! all you gotta do is ask :bing:

    I'm startled that no one at Tinderbox knows what kind of pipe is put in their advert. Seeing how tight they are with Ascorti, that would be my first guess, but the stem doesn't look right....

    I agree, the stem isn't quite right. Most likely this is something that the photographer acquired specifically for the advert, could be from ebay or similar sources. The stem looks like a "custom" job....

    It's clearly Italian in nature, from general geometry to the acrylic stem. I would look at it as very possibly being a Savinelli product. I don't think I've seen an Ascorti rusticated just like that. Funny to me to see an obviously very modern pipe beside a tobacco that is some kind of throwback.

    I agree that it looks Italian. Looks like a caminetto to me.

    if you're looking for a similar pipe it looks pretty similar to some of the nicer castello sea-rocks.

    Thanks guys for all the help. I'm leaning towards a Savinelli Estella pipe so far. The search will go on!!
