    Here's an article from the News Observer of North Carolina yesterday about Dr. Grabow pipes if you're interested. http://www.newsobserver.com/2013/06/02/2934676/made-in-north-carolina-sparta.html

    I'll preface my comment by saying I like Dr Grabow pipes, they are an iconic American brand that smoke well. Current production, however, has lost some ground in the workmanship department. I bought a Royalton last year and can only think it was a "Friday afternoon" pipe. I think they should make fewer pipes and focus a little more on overall quality.

    Nice little article. But, of course, you can't mention anything related to tobacco without the idiots ruining the comments section.

    That link comes straight from the News Observer website sent to me by a friend from another forum, not the Dr. Grabow forum. Do you think everything concerning Dr. Grabow originates from the Dr. Grabow forum? This is twice you have accused me of borrowing from the Dr. Grabow forum, :fpalm: it! I didn't borrow anything!:mad:

    I didn't know there was a Dr. Grabow forum. Interesting. I assume it's run by Dr. Grabow enthusiasts, not run by the company.
