    I bought a pipe lot from ebay and found a gem a while ago. Its a small or medium billiard and the only markings on it are 'SCOTT Algerian briar' I cant find anything on the internet about it.
    Has anyone heard of this? It is a FANTASTIC smoker maybe my best.
    I will post a pic tomorrow. Just wondered if anyone knew about 'Scott' pipes?

    Wow, the crickets in this post are deafening. Must be a mystery to all.

    Well this must be among the rarest pipes in the multiverse if nobody has an idea?

    I found that too. Unrelated I would guess, this is an older pipe. Its magic. I would rather lose my 8 other pipes than this one.

    Great looking pipe Mike, I have a friend who has a scott pipe, he got it on his last trip to France.
    It is a perfect smoker, perfect grain and briar and probably his favorite pipe.
    He too could not find any more info on scott pipes either :(

    Yeah, I understand. I have a no name that probably smokes better than any other pipe I have.

    I have a Scott pipe that I bought in 1966 at a B&M in Kansas City. I is a basket pipe that I paid $3.00 for. It had a natural finish that after 46 years has turned a beautiful nut brown. It won't pass a cleaner but with a bend and a twist, job done. Over the years it has become my favorite pipe. I have had a lucite stem made for it and it is one of those pipes that you just can't do without.

    I guess its not the only one then. And it just illustrates the point that big dollars does not always guarantee the best pipe. If I ever stumble onto another I will snatch it up.

    That is awesome Rodfather! I have seen a couple of these on the bay and tried to figure out their source.

    Not a Scott, but I have an Algerian briar pipe made by a company called Amiel. I picked it up off eBay for a couple of ££, and it smokes amazingly. Funnily enough, it had been sitting in my car unsmoked for a year or so until a couple of days ago, when I fished it out, so that I can start to properly restore it, as I just started smoking it straight off when I got it. I have bleach-soaked the stem, and will wait until I have more time to finish the job properly. I may post a picture of it on here once it is done.
