Yes. I knew it would be easy with the double comfort bit.

Kinda sorta. This pipe was not made by Orlik but I think there was some sort of lawsuit over it's design or sale involving Orlik. The Orlik family seems to have been very much involved with the company who's name is stamped on the pipe.

Sometimes you feel like a Nutt . . .
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

Captain Black?
(an Orlik brand)

Alternate guess:
Charatan due to the rusticated shank treatment which was common to their sandblasts.

No, but good guess. This illustrates the drop off, not in internals or briar quality, but of finishing that happened with the old British stalwarts. One of my finest smokers, but not one of the best finished.

Indeed. Early 60's. Still good wood and a well blasted bowl, but sloppily finished.
