I continue to say that I need to thin down my collection so here goes. Pretty sure none of these ever had any super ghosters put through them. Posting from my phone so it may take a minute to get them all up with pictures.

First up is the Svendborg 37 bark. Handmade in Denmark, 9mm filter, amazingly comfortable vulcanite stem. Chamber is 0.88" x 1.5" $55 shipped ConUS

Next up is a stanwell zebrano. This thing is huge. Made in Denmark, 9mm filter. Full disclosure : it was refinished by me and a friend of mine. The little acrylic accent has a small crack in it on the end near the stem. Chamber is 0.83" x 1.84" $40 shipped ConUS due to the acrylic (can be seen in the nomenclature picture)

Next up is a little LHS purex shape 21. Cool little pipe. Was in horrible condition when it showed up. Threads were galled so it wouldn't unscrew. Looking at pipedia I'd guess this was manufactured in war time since it has no stamping about imported briar. I'd also guess that means it's made of domestic briar / manzanita root. I've never smoked it. Removable stinger. Chamber is 0.88" x 1.35" $40 shipped ConUS

Comoy's sandblasted 157 that I just never reach for. Silver repair band on it, 3 piece c stem. I haven't ever found a reason for the repair band but it is attractive, only stamped sterling silver. Chamber is 0.75" x 1.35" $40 shipped ConUS

The Everyman by Comoy's shape 534. Made in London. I was really happy to snag this pipe and when it showed up it went on a shelf and I never smoked it. Funny how that happens. Anyway it's exactly how I received it. Chamber is 0.75" x 1.5" $30 shipped ConUS

I agree with hout and longshanks. It's a beauty and right in the good father's wheelhouse. The price was supposed to be $30 shipped by the way, I was tapping on the auto fill buttons on my keyboard and changing music on the player at the same time

If you've never read about lhs on pipedia before you should take a minute to do so. Quite a company in their day

I will say that LHS is the pick of the litter.
