    This is a 9 pipe collection.

    He was a cigar smoker who became a pipe smoker. Some of the pipes are in excellent shape while others are rough. They are any where from 15-25 years old. I am going to try and restore a couple of them just to see what I can do. I am just listing them by what they say on them. I will add photos later, when I figure out how.

    Dr. Grabow Savoy bent pipe.
    Dr. Grabow Duke straight pipe.
    Dr. Grabow 6010 presmoked straight pipe
    Jobey Band 200 bent
    Mark V made in USA, don't have a clue who makes this pipe
    A straight billiard that says Thermofilter imported briar
    Tom Howard straight
    Alpha Corona bent
    Italy bent

    Like I said I will add photos soon. Wish me luck on the restoration, I am 100% rookie in this area.

    The Only Man With Too Many Pipes Is The Man With Too Little Tobacco.

    Enjoy those pipes. Somehow pipe restoration is the only cleaning job I enjoy. ;)

    I also recently came into some estate pipes and some others that my father had in storage. When I get them back I will post some pics.
