I stumbled on this pipe and was wondering if anyone could ID it for me:
We are going to need a bit more info.
Yeah, sorry, but all I can tell you so far is that it's a straight, rusticated, dark-stained billiard-ish pipe. Probably a vulcanite stem, but possibly something different.
Is this a pipe you own? Are looking to buy? Does it have any markings on the at all?
Yeah I figured it would be a long shot but I figured if anyone could figure it out it would be you guys. I don't own this pipe; I just saw the picture and thought it was amazing. I would buy it but I'm sure it's long gone. Do you guys know who makes black, sandblasted straight billiards? I would prefer something under $100 but wouldn't mind going a bit over.
its out of stock, but you can look around for that pipe.
Here's a couple of Savinelli's different sizes for much less:
and here's a Stanwell for less than 90:
these are just from one site, I searched for "Billiard" and came up with tons, shop around and see what's out there! (and no, I don't work for that site, it's just where I generally look first for selection, then price compare.)
Thanks for the recommendations guys! I'll definitely be looking at Savinellis and Stanwells. The only briar pipe I own is an old Sav which has been serving me quite well. I have been interested in trying an acrylic stem though Stanwells are definitely in contention too.
Anyone else have some other pipe makers to recommend?
I bought one of these when I lived in NZ and I can tell you it is a damned fine pipe.
Maybe bag a Kaywoodie . Relief grains are priced at around 25 bucks
oh my i want a bunch of those.
are the latitude 41's on sale? i only see the more expensive ones on sale on the site
Have to check with Jan. Not sure what he's asking these days, but I'm sure they're still a pretty good value. I think mine was only ~$50 when I bought it ten years ago. Don't remember what the exchange rate was back then though either...
if its only $50 i might get two. i love chubby pipes :P
It's a 1962 Dunhill Shell Briar, Group 4. The stem has been replaced by a non-professional, so there's no dot. The stem replacement cost $20. The pipe is worth $102.57, unless it was formerly owned by Mr. Bruce Springsteen, but it doesn't look like one of his.
if that's right.. dayum!
Hey Paul I have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale. Shoot me a PM sometime.
psh i like mountains, beaches are dumb :P
I looked at the picture a little bit more and it looks like it does have a white dot. I don't know if anyone else can make it out but I'm pretty sure there's a white dot there. That means I'll never be able to afford it
By the way, how could you tell it was a Dunhill and the year it was made?
Please excuse me; I was playing the fool. Well, maybe not playing, but being.
It may well actually be a Dunhill, I too see the ghost of a dot in the enlarged photo. If you'd like to have a Dunhill, don't despair-- they go for $100 and even a little under on Ebay sometimes. I have two that I got that way, and they were cheaper than I expected them to be. One of the two is quite a good smoker, and the other is amongst the worst pipes I have, so no need to be impressed by the brand name.
id just go for one of those jan zeman pipes, they look just as awesome, and apparently arent very expensive
