    All of my pipes are bents...generally I don't like straights...I was, however, perusing the ebay Kaywoodie listings and spotted this little number...octagon-shaped billiard...unsmoked too...can anyone help with dating this? The pipe is Kaywoodie shape number 44 “Octagon Apple”...it had the original $15.00 price sticker on the stem...the seller says he thinks the shape and price correspond to that of the 1968-69 Kaywoodie catalog...any help?

    Hmmm...I would be happy to help you out but it will require you to ship the pipe to me for a physical examination

    Judging by the stem logo I'd say the seller is pretty close. Also Kaywoodies of that era tend to be smaller than those of today. Nice burner, let us know how she smokes.

    Kaywoodies are excellent smokers. Good luck, Nueromancer! I hope you get it for a sweet price.

    I looked at the pix earlier today and was seriously impressed by the grain and quality of this pipe - if it is indeed the era indicated then it wasn't a cheap pipe at $15.00 US - at the time in the Uk a Falcon cost 30/- old money or £1.50 in decimal - at the time $6.00 US. A Falcon now costs £30.00 approx - so if you work from there it wasn't a cheapo.

    Many happy years with it; a pipe I actually envy you!

    The best part is that the only real flaws were two tiny little nicks the size of a pinhead...took a toothpick with just a dot of stain on the end...filled 'em in, and used my buffer with a little carnauba wax and it's totally restored and looks like it was made yesterday...not bad for forty years old...

    Thats a beaut. I'm currently looking to get my hands on an old woodie(no pun intended) maybe a 13b or some supergrain. I hope it smokes well for you!
