So, for a while I've been restoring and collecting Kaywoodies, those old ones sure are a pleasure to smoke. Every Kaywoodie I've restored, and also the two new ones I got from WV Smokeshop are just tremendous pipes for the money. I have to say, I'm a fan. Well, I was browsing ebay for Kaywoodies a couple of weeks ago and came across a Kaywoodie Chesterfield that caught my eye. It is a bent billiard with a military mount and a P-lip. So, I got the pipe, restored it, and WOW! an instant favorite. The pipe does not have a stinger. The draw is perfect, and the P-lip is comfy. There is absolutely zero gurgle, the thing smokes dry and cool, and to be honest it puts to shame the two Dunhills (and everything else in my collection) I have.. I wish the modern factory pipe was always this good. Even the current makers of Kaywoodies have a thing or two to learn from the old ones, just saying. I never understood why the modern factory pipe makers couldn't make pipes of the same quality they used to. I get it, materials are more expensive, but they could still ask for more money. Just like Grabows: The vintage ones are a thing of beauty and craftmanship, for a factory pipe I mean. The new Grabows, well, I would use those as "disposable" pipes to decorate a snow man.
