    Hi trying to id this pipe. Its a onepiece with no markings.

    Look like bacolight and has what looks like clay in the bowl.
    Any help would be grand. Hope this works as I've never loaded a pic before.

    Without any markings it’s may be a bugger to identify, but I’ll try to throw you a bone. If it IS bakelite, that would indicate that the pipe was from the 1920’s, possibly manufactured in France. Being all black is a bit different then the few I had seen the past. Those were a honey yellow or black stem with a colored bowl. If its possible that the pipe is made of Pyrolytic Graphite, (and that’s what I think you have), that would age the pipe from between 1965 to 1973 and probably made in England. Check this current discussion on “The Pipe” for more info on Pyrolytic Graphite pipes. Not much help but it’s all I have.

    Looks like "The Pipe" to me too, don't scrape too hard at that clay looking liner, it may be graphite.

    Looks like a Bent Bob to me. Is it really small-bowled?

    Looks like an earlier version of "The Pipe". If you intend on smoking it pack the bowl lightly and sip slowly, I'm guessing by the way it looks it may get a bit toasty. Good looking pipe though.

    I have two that are quite similar looking, both are black one piece pipes with a round airway and thin walled bowl. It appears to be a vulcanite coating over it, since it has SOME discoloration on one.

    EDIT: Pipe says GERMANY on the shank. I still can't believe how dirty they were when I got them.
