“We obtained a large quantity of 30-50 Year Old Unfinished Italian Briar Pipes from a pipe maker estate sale and had our friend Bill Feuerbach from the S.M. Frank & Co.(makers of Kaywoodie,Medico & Yello-Bole) complete these in various Finishes. Our goal was to bring our customers some Traditional High Quality Pipes that are affordable and well-made.”

Well, one of these hit all the marks for me. Basic American sized billiard at 6” X 2”, has some impressive looking grain with spot carving over surface faults (I’m a huge fan of this. Fills end up looking worse, and if there’s some nice grain to salvage why rusticate it?) and has a nice lucite stem (my preference). Cost, $42. Will report back when it arrives.

Being custom finished by Bill F (and his helpers) ain't no small thing either. These are very nice pipes!

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

Got the pipe yesterday and been been breaking it in with MacBaren’s Mixture flake. They did a real nice job on these. The finish is nice, the stem work and fit is very good, smokes great with zero issues. They’re worth a lot more than they’re charging, but don’t tell em that!

It’s just a freebie Sutliff butane pipe lighter I got when I bought a pound of Sutliff tobacco. Has the fold out pipe tools on the side. Works great so far, can’t complain.

The lighter looks to be the same as the ronson that can be found at Walmart relatively cheap. I've had this one for a bit and it works perfect as long as I fill it with good butane.

On topic, that's a sharp pipe! They did a really nice job putting those together
