    They sound like they could be Grabows just sold under different names for various tobacco sellers like SWR.

    True, they were made by the same folks that made the Grabow but sans the filter.

    I remember seeing them in the 90's .They werent Grabows per sey. If they were Grabows then they were higher quality . At that time Lane was still a big player as far as distribution goes . They had Dunhill , Winslow and on and on . They wanted Wiley but he didnt cave . They had a bazillion pouches , stands , etc .. ... Do you have a pic of the Lane pipe ? I might be off but I remember them having a number of the Charatan shapes but I could be off .
