Kaywoodies

Post by John-Boy » Wed Jul 18, 2007 7:33 pm

Just got these two Kaywoodies off ebay. I noticed someone had used the same picture for three of their pipe listings. I asked what the deal was - they said "yeah, must have messed up the pictures." So I figured it would be fun to bid on a couple pipes without seeing them. They were kind of a mess when they arrived but seemed to clean up nice.

I'll say those cleaned up nice!

Also, that G2 looks mighty fancy for plastic click pen. Did you do any high class mods to it or anything?

JB, those look great. I am a Kaywoodie fan for sure. Just got a never-smoked Signet pear shape, will post a picture soon. Now have 6 shapes in the Signet line. I like the look of these and they smoke well also.

Best,
Steverino

Nice looking pipes. I love the one in the second photo. As a almost exclusive Kaywoodie smoker it does my heart wonders to see others enjoying these fine old pipes.

Great find.

I have a small straight apple Kaywoodie Shamrock (I believe). It does smoke great but it is pricey. I have not smoked any vintage Kaywoodies to which I can compare it.

UB, are you talking about the newer ones or vintage stuff? I have a Conniseur which used to be one of the higher grades and it smokes real well. Don't have any of the newer stuff though.

I have smoked/owned some new era higher grade Kaywoodies. In my honest and bias opinion they are the best pipe for your money on the market. Other then a few odd ducks all my future purchases will be mid to high grade Kaywoodies.

I've got a Kaywoodie All-Briar squat bulldog from the mid fifties with a replacement mouthpiece (no stinger). A great smoker.

I do not own any Kaywoodies... but I'm intrigued by the this thread and the comments of those collectors... I have a question though... what exactly is a "stinger"?

Chip, the stinger is just a little piece of metal attached to the inside end of the stem. The idea of it was to cool the smoke, trap some tar and keep any moisture from within the pipe from making it to your mouth, hence the Kaywoodie "Drinkless" designation. They come in several different varieties, mainly three-hole and four-hole, with four-hole being the most sought after as it is older. Go to the following link and you can see a pretty good example of a Kaywoodie stinger. Be sure to scroll down to the sixth picture in the "click to enlarge" series.

Best,
Steve
