    Looks like kind of a vintage/nostalgic nomenclature on it, that with the dark wood (which I prefer) really makes for a nice pipe. Thanks for posting!

    Thanks everyone!
    This particular model is an EXCELLENT Flake pipe!!!!!!! Mind you: The finishing isn't the best to be honest!
    It's not apparent on the picture but at the bottom the varnish has flaked off a bit due to the heat which is a real shame!
    Nevertheless: I wouldn't want to part with it but if anyone considers buying one of those I recommend another grade/finish!
    This one is known as Jockey Club but there are others which I can't remember right now.
    Hope this helps!:bing:

    I have a Parker Foursquare. Goldenbark finish, I believe. It's the equivillent of a Dunhill Tanshell.

    It smokes great, and is one of my favourites. I'd put in on par, smoking wise, with my Dunhill.

    I have a couple. Both are good pipes for the price. I had the same problem as shadow with a bit of flaking on one of them but it doesn't matter to me because the pipe smokes so well.
