My rusticated top-smoker. I thought to have uploaded a pic before, but seemingly not.

Vauen Mamba 5537. Still a pipe, which you can grab and shut your brain off. Would be totally recommendable for rookies. Beside of that, it's standard mass-production and affordable (105 EUR).

Don’t know how they may do wire rustication in a factory setting but the Danish pipe carvers who invented the technique would wrap the stummel with copper wire, then sandblast it. The high straight ridges are where the wire was. I went back several pages in this thread for the pic but this is my Poul Winslow. I’ll reshoot new pics the next time I light it up.

Thanks for the information Jack,that makes allot more sense to me. I couldn't figure out if it was done on a wire wheel how they kept the edges of the stummel crisp and didn't tear out the bead on the bulldog.

Mom brought me a Billiard from Side, Turkey. Even there, Meerschaum pipes difficult to get! But Hotel indoor kiosk finally helped unbureaucratic and organized one. :)

I think, it's NOS.

Twenty-five yrs ago Jess Chonowitsch & the Danish pipe company Stanwell made a bent Dublin shaped pipe honoring the 200th birthday anniversary of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. It was fitted with an Army mount with brass ferrule & came with dual stems, a regular length & a Churchwarden. The limited edition known as the Hans Christian Andersen quickly sold out. A few yrs later they offered a Hans Christian Andersen II. The Army mount was fitted with a nickel ferrule & was also offered with a 9mm filter. This video shows the HCA II.


This original HCA is on its way to a new home.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Smoke & post those Peterson pipes if you got ‘em. Preferably pre Republic pipes.

Great idea, Jack.
If I remember correctly and read the hallmark right, I believe the silver was stamped around 1923, the pipe probably made shortly after. Too big for me to smoke regularly, it is normally my Christmas Day pipe.

How are you liking this pipe? I picked up a new meerschaum in may and have been smoking it almost exclusively since. I love the dry, cool smoke

It's a good pipe, with the fine Meerschaum character like you mentioned. But the chamber has a V-shaped bottom, so you have to pay attention, when you're filling. But, when you're filling lighter than usual, it's running very well. A little tricky in the beginning. You have to learn this girl.
