As some of you may remember me writing a month or 2 ago, I was "gifted" about 7 estate pipes from the mid 80's from a friend of the family who does not smoke anymore. There was a Savinelli, Soren, Stanwell, MGM Rock, a gorgeous meer, and a Dunhill Shell Briar. Unfortunately the Dunhill did not have a stem: Well I found out that I could get a real Dunhill stem for it (at a price) at Pipeworks & Wilke. So I sent it to them. I just got it back yesterday in a very reasonable turnaround time and it looks and smokes great! They also sent me two (1 oz.?) samples of their tobaccos; #24 and #191. I have not tried them yet, but will probably try the #24 tonight in the Dunhill (It's an English). I already smoked (my last bowlful) of one of my fav. English; Frog Morton and it was an amazing smoke. I can't wait to show and tell the guy who gave it to me, whom I only see about once a month or so. He told me it was his favorite pipe and a great smoker. I am so pleased with Pipeworks & Wilke (Carole) that I will probably send them a couple more pipes that need stems. Here are the after pics. So...it was a happy ending.
