Well, I don't know if I'm correct. I'm only going by what Pipedia says about the brand. They're usually accurate but I don't know if they are 100% accurate, though.Hitzy wrote: ↑Mon Dec 24, 2018 8:23 amIt does resemble some Molina pipes, so you are probably correct. It was a bit different from my other Italian pipes as the bowl was the smoothest I've ever seen, like it has been honed and polished it was so smooth, not a mark in it.Lord Guyrox wrote: ↑Mon Dec 24, 2018 3:58 amI understand.Hitzy wrote: ↑Sun Dec 23, 2018 12:09 pm
I was going by Tobbaco Pipes listing here, says made in Germany.

Also said made in Germany on the box. They do seem to have them made all over Europe however.
As Rattray pipes are now owned by Kohlhose, Kopp & Co and as Oliver Kopp designs the shapes, that could very well explain the "Made in Germany". It's like the Stanwell pipes made in Italy since 2010 or 2011: the stamping now reads 'Danish Design' instead of 'Made in Denmark' rather than 'Made in Italy'.
Guess I'll be on the hunt for a Vauen as I was after a German pipe for heritage reasons.
Any excuse for a new pipe works for me
And I'm totally with you: any excuse for a pipe does work.
