Here are my cobs, some as early as the 1900's and some rather new.
Nice little collection!
Very nice collection you have there. Do you smoke the vintage ones?
Like that banded bent diamond shank number.
They all get smoked except the vintage ones less and only one bowl from the set in the box has been smoked yearly the diamond shank bent is one of my favorites
That's a great looking collection, and the diamond shank especially!
Nice looking set
I'm green with envy. Very nice looking collection.
I've been getting into the vintage cobs lately too. I've picked up several unsmoked ones, and am thinking of having custom cut stems made for them to match the factory look, but with better quality material.
Forever Stem makes outstanding stems that fit cobs and they are truly forever.
I've got a few on the new ones, but they don't fit the really old vintage H&B, MM & Bueschers models.
I understand what you mean, if you find someone that can duplicate that feel let us know how it goes.
Here's my favorite vintage H&B. It has a cream colored round stem:
Here's a vintage MM I got from WyoBob. It has a very large bowl...
I think it would be neat to have reproduction stems done in acrylic or lucite.
Is the H&B stem bone? I have one the label was lost from before I took ownership of and it is bone, great smoker too. That diamond amber is a corker!
How does that square shank smoke? Hope it smokes well. It sure is a looker.
Is the bit on the first pipe plastic or Ivory? The old Phoenix Pipe Works "The Dewey" that I owned (the balance of my old cob collection went in the mail this afternoon) had a screw in bit that sure wasn't plastic (as verified by the glowing needle test) and I'm pretty sure it was ivory.)
Just added this to the fold and can't await its arrival and maiden smoke.
Looks like it could have come from Smokin' Dragon
