ImageThis pipe is from a company called Bewlay. I've never even heard of Bewlay pipes, but I would very much like to have a pipe such as this one.
Bewlay is a pipe brand you should be looking for, Morley. They were originally Salmon and Gluckstein, I think, could be wrong. But their piped were made by Orlik, Charatan, Barling and others. Most retain their factory shape numbers.

As the firm was dead by the 60s, I think, you do the math. I have several and love them.

Word.

I have several Bewlay's and they're great.
A couple were made by Orlik,
and this one was made by Sasieni:

Cleon turned me on to this one. I love it, even though the idea of a spigoted lovat seems so ridiculously functionally-redundant.

The more I think about it the more I believe that pipe had to be a special order for someone.

That seems right.

Though I guess it's technically a liverpool. I'm not gonna change the URL, though, now that it's been quoted.

Pastel stem colours... a curious development. Is Askwith speculating that women are taking up pipes?
Like that one, then you may love this one...

This presence of pastel feminine colours is much more pronounced with modern fountain pens because the women are a significant part of the market.

I think I saw another one of those on Marty Pulver's site a while back. It could have been the same pipe. I wish my memory was better.

Although I've found myself liking Cumberland and other mixed color stems more than I had in the past, I am not warming up to this pipe. The stem color seems, to me, to draw more than its appropriate share of attention.

I'll give it more time, though.

Goodness knows, my taste in pipes is always changing and a pipe I wouldn't have given a second look a few years ago (like a briar cherrywood or practically obese author or Rhodesian) suddenly looks beautiful to me.

That means somebody else has a chance to buy one for a change.

I have taken a break.
All the pipes in my pipeline have arrived.
None left to be delivered and none out for repair.

It is time to simply smoke, which, by the way, I've been doing with gusto with a new schedule at school and many moments available for a pipe and conversation.
