That Stanwell Handcut has been given it's exorcism, deoxidation, etc, and now the polish and waxing is done, keep you're pant on but drowl as much as you want to, allright :)

From the side, beautyfull stright grains.


From the top, slightly angled not to mess up the light, wich is poor light anyway.


From the other side, here's a wonderfull straight grain to.


And the bottom, where the nice grain all gathers in fantastic birdseye.


Guess what pipe i'll be smoking in a few minutes from now ;)

That is one of the nicest Stanwells I've seen.
Everything about it works for me.
Congratulations!
The handcut series are said to be handmade only by their very best pipemakers back in the 80's, only markings are stanwell ond the wood, a brass S on the top of the cumberland stem, and a small (handcut) on the bottom of the stem, perfect condition, except for some tar on the rim, oxidzed stem and latakiaghosts, now, my favourite pipe :)

Send 'em to the Ivarsson's.
I belive they were not involved in these, unfortunately, could possibly be Tom Eltang :) but i belive there were 4 persons in total involved in them, and theres not tracking that could give me a year, that could narrow it down to 1 or 2 carvers

I love the rim and the thick walls, looks like a good smoker
Well, there's still some latakia spooking in the bottom half, so it will get some more salt/alco :)
But i agree, thick walls, curved rim, and the floating seemless shape is a bliss :D and smokes like a dream!

Is there anyone that whould dare to guess a value? I really havecno idea, and it's not for sale but it whould be fun to have an idea :)

Dont really know what i've paid for it since it was in a lot of 14 stanwells, but this one stands out more than the others.

The whole lot is shown below, i was told to bid approx 400 usd and i could have gotten it for 300, but i decided that i whould pay the same as i whould have offerd just about anyone, 500usd, the lot also contains an unsmoked from the mid 80's, a really nice "golden contrast", one "silver S" and a "sixtus" in hornshape (as most can figure out the sixtus series is a tribute to Sixten Iversen)

If anyone is nosy about someone of them, juat ask here in the thread and i'll check for the markings :)
