Talk about a gimmick pipe @Fr_Tom ! There's more than meets the eye with Royalton! This is the HLT forerunner to Dr.Grabow Royalton pipes.

I am the total sucker for the gimmick pipe. I bid on a NOS Dawes not too long ago, but it was just wishful thinking. I knew it would go way out of my price range.

The trap is for nicotine! I thought it was to collect moisture.

We all know that Dr Grabow used to pre-smoke their pipes to save us all from that chore, but few have ever seen the machine responsible in action. I couldn’t embed the video, I suppose the type of video it is isn’t supported here. I have included the following link.

At about the 3:45 mark you can see the last pre-smoking machine that was used by Dr Grabow in Sparta. The whole video is pretty cool.

I like the filling technique. It is a dribble to fill with a light thumb. For my purposes the codger scoop works, but this one has merit.
