That's a shape 170. Don't try to convince yourself that pipe is on that chart. :lol:
No, the 170 is a Rhodesian in every chart they've ever published.
Maybe contact Stanwell and get to the bottom of it. There might be a reason why?

You might have something with a back story. Where is your sense of the pipe smokers journey? Maybe we want to know.

I'm not going to stop digging into it by any means. I just don't think I'm going to contact imitation stanwell to try to get info since they're well out of Denmark nowadays

You should be contacting the Danish Pipe shop or Tom Eltang via insta, he replies.

You read my mind. I think they probably know more about the history of stanwell than the current stuffed shirts at stanwell
