I looked at those a little while ago and was really tempted (I even have the money in Paypal). I really like Stanwells.

I've one of that shape — sans the additional, xtra-long stem — in a Royal Danish finish. Great pipe.

Ya got me. I've always wanted a Stanwell HCA ever since I started smoking a pipe in 2007 but never bought one because I thought they were overpriced. As much as I don't need a pipe, I just couldn't resist. It's silly really because I could just make myself a similar pipe. Regardless, I bought this one and I blame durangopipe:

Me too.
Same deal.

I have wanted one, but thought they cost too much. At these prices, I'm glad I pulled the trigger.
(I can't make one for myself.)

That, sir, is a fine looking Stanwell. I almost pulled the trigger on one.

Edit: just checked the website and there is another one just like yours still listed. Well, I, ... (drumming fingers on desktop)....

I don't know if P&Cs sends the exact pipe pictured. For you, I hope they did, because that pipe has excellent graining.

I have a similar shaped pipe, a Preben Holm Ben Wade that I have dedicated to latakia blends.

They better send the pipe pictured. I chose this one over the other one of the same shape because of the grain. I'm pretty sure they use actual photos of each pipe rather than stock photos. That has been the case regarding past pipes I've purchased from them.

Stanwells have above average grain patterns IMO, although with the occasional fill.

I don't care for the printed crown and "S" logo on the stems. I never have. They look cheap to me on an otherwise nice looking pipe.

I don't mind the logo on the stem but they are way too shallow and wear off too easy.

Feels like two pipes for $78.
Another Churchwarden and a nice Dublin.

I'm Happy.
