I hesitate to do this, but I have had mixed results with Norwood.

My personal theory is that the father is very good, and the son just slaps on a cast stem and buffs off the casting marks. I am picky with buttons. They don't have to be the same or anything, but the unfinished ones never sit correctly in my teeth. I can explain all this and say I am willing to pay extra for the time to finish the button. The father does it. The son charges me for it and doesn't touch the button.

Just my experience... I WILL say they are always quick on the turnaround. This is consistently good.
I always call Floyd and request that he does the work. I've heard the same about his son.

An honest review from an honest man.

Own several Boswell estates, but decided to buy a new one to commemorate 2020. 👊🏻

It is an unusual design for J.M. Boswell. He has been making pipes for 40+ years and pushes out new ones on his website every Monday at 8:00 P.M. EST. They go very, very fast. ✔
