I don’t see any markings on it anywhere.

There won't be. These are one off pieces. The bit looks aftermarket--is it aluminum?

I'd go over to tobaccoartistory.blogspot.com and send off an email. Pretty specialized bit of knowledge you're looking for and I'd think they might know.

Well... I did it. I bought that Rattray's Rhodesian.

I've got some cash burning a hole in my pocket, and this little Rattray's Beltane's Fire rhodesian is looking mighty fine right now. Haven't pulled the trigger yet. Still debating...

Agreed. That toots my horn.
I've put it in my cart, and deleted it twice now. This exceeds the most I've ever spent on a pipe ($130). Maybe it seems kinda gimmicky, but I like the 3 stems that it ships with - kinda a neat way to dress it up differently. I've found that my two favorite shapes are a lovat and a rhodesian, so this tickles that itch.

Dang... I'm so indecisive.
If it had a different stem I'd go in and snake it from you :twisted:

Haha... No. That would be excessive even for me.

They have more than the one. And there are 5 other finish options as well.

So this morning it occurred to me that the Rattray's rhodesian I ordered last night accepts a 9mm filter. IDK that Rattray's includes a filter adapter like Savinelli does. I phoned TobaccoPipes.com to see if I could have an adapter added to my order, thus taking advantage of the free shipping. They were good enough to throw it in free of charge rather than make me pay the $4.99 asking price on the website. Its a small thing, but I appreciated it.

This is a contest, right? The one who buys the most pipes in 2019 wins?
