    Just finished cleaning up a Scandia (Stanwell 2d) I got off Flea-Bay. The flash reveals I have further work to do. But anyway, the shape on this is a bit odd, especially by the angle. Here's your classic shot.

    But, it turns out, it's more or less flat in the front. Can't imagine what kind of flaw would have made them basically shave a panel onto the face so it could do this:

    I think it's going to be a nice little pipe. Really like the vulcanite on it.

    Stanwells always seem to smoke great, 2nds included. That panel might come in handy if you need to put the pipe down in your car's cup holder...

    Probably where the flaw was...hence the "second" category. Nice pipe, whatever the designation...

    I have three Scandia's and all smoke like a Boss! They are definitely Stanwell pipes. I've looked for the blemish or flaws in them and they are minimal cosmetic issues at worst.
