Hi there - I was recently lucky enough to get hold of a boat load of new old stock unsmoked pipes from an old London tobacconist that shut down at the end of the 70's. From what the internet tells me these pipes were made by an ex Charatan employee, and looking them over last night they look to be very well drilled. Some of them have some pretty ugly fills so I may rusticate them and refinish them but on the whole they are great pipes. Read more about them here:

I will be listing some of the better ones in the for sale section on here once I get some photos taken and a selling account sorted.

If anyone knows anything about GW Sims I would love to hear some more info about the shop/pipes.

So can I call you a true pipe collector now? I am sure your collection total is creeping up...

I think everyone's waiting for the pictures.

Just taken them down to a local pipe club and sold a few. Will be taking the rest to the Pipe Club of London. Pictures will follow if I have any left to sell.

Hang in there big fella. Will only photograph them if I plan on selling them online, either here or eBay. The camera on my phone only takes good pictures once in a blue moon so need to wait for Mrs buistd to get her camera set up.
