    Just bought 2 Brigham pipes at the Grabow factory. Yes...Grabow.
    One is a Rustic bent sitter with 1 dot.. stamped 127 (shape # I'm sure)
    The other is a fine smooth big billiard with 3 maple leaves on the stem.
    Paid $50.00 for the 2. What are they, and are they worth what I paid? Thanks, ... ted

    I think you made a good purchase. I am interested to hear how they actually smoke. Phil.

    The older ones I have are great smokers, have not tried a new one. They are Canadian made.

    WERE Canadian made. The older pipes, with an aluminum tenon (which accepts the 3" maple tube filter) were very good, by and large, and called "Canada's Dunhill" although the pipes were generally affordable.

    Production is Italian now if I understand correctly and the tenon fitment is a space age plastic and basically the low end pipes aren't what they were.

    They still make some nice pipes, and it sounds like the second pipe you describe may be one of these.

    Thanks SAS. Both have genuine "mother of plastic" tenons, but are not stamped with a country of origin..ie Italy. Don't know if the import laws in Canada are the same as ours. Here, all imported pipes must be stamped with the country of origin. Appreciate it... ted

    Actually gave away every pipe that I bought at the Factory. Mr. Moo got an Eldorado, Dave Whitney got a Hillcrest #012. Something about left-handers, Irish Lefty and Ozark Southpaw got the 2 Brighams. Locomac got a Grabow cigarette holder and some cleaners.

    Next trip its Ascorti.... SAS, You got 1 coming whenever I go...Shape? Finish? There is a nearly full 1 dozen tray left, so you get a pick..within reason.. ted

    I'll take whatever you pick out Ted, though I do lean bent. I'll send you some Condor, if you like, when I get my hands on some. I rode past the factory a few weeks ago. It's not really that far from home.
