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.

I've always thought S. Bangs were attractive pipes, but I never really wanted one, until now. Just look at any of their billiards. Great lines. Perfect grain. Superb engineering. They are a subtle Danish take on the classic billiard. Too bad they cost an arm and a leg.

A bent Pipa Croci True Scoop. Over 6 inches long, 7/8 inch bore, 2 inches deep. It's become my favorite and I wish that I could find two or three others like it. As big, or bigger.

I've always wanted and Ashton Brindle X billiard or lovat with a spiral shank. I wish I could post a photo of one, but I can't find any photos.

From what I can tell, Ashton-Taylor turned out a number of spiral shanked pipes about 10 years ago. I have never seen anyone execute a spiral shanked, blasted pipe that caught my attention like his did. I was never able to land one, sadly.

Just got the first of the birth year pipes. The last one they had in stock which is why I only have one. Will post a pic of the inagural smoke.

Just got this one and it's love at 1st sight. It's nearly 1 inch diameter chamber about 1 -7/8 deep, and is a clencher, due to it being only about 5 -1/2 inches long. It's very well balanced. And I think the 360 ring grain is light, even though the chamber walls are quite thick. It's an estate Ascorti Sabbia Di Oro KS, hand made in Italy.

Nice pipe; I'm glad you like it.
However, I think this thread is for discussing yet-to-be-obtained, bucket-list, iconic-pipe-I-would-like-to-have pictures and posts.

When Goose posts a pipe, he desires it just as he chooses to desire it — neither more nor less.

And you're going to know it's his pipe, because he'll post it bloody well everywhere he possibly could.

I had a spiral stem Lee von Erck once. Goose would have loved that pipe. 'Twas huge. Meaty. Jaw breaking.
