Hi folks. My name is Ed and I'm a 61 YO retired construction worker. I spend my time in a small shop in our basement working on pipes. I like restoring or re-finishing them and also make a few pipes and tampers. I'm a die hard Grabow freak and they make up the biggest part of my collection.

Welcome, I also like Grabow pipes, I think they are good pipes for the money, I like the real old ones that you can find on ebay.

Hello, Ed. I live only a couple of hours north of you. I'm originally from Cape Girardeau, and have been down your way many times.

Welcome to the Brotherhood and please post pics.

Yup, just take Hwy 67 north just past Farmington and you're there. Sure, i'll let you know ahead of time when I head that way. Definitely will have a meet-up for a couple of bowls!

Welcome, Ed. I was born in St. Louis. Do you care? I didn't think so. Say, I was just wondering: what's the highest grade of Dr. Grabow? (I need facts like these to put in my hard drive upstairs. Ya' never know when ya' might need 'em.)

Thanks Gents ! Friendly crowd here!

Richard B. In regular production pipes made today the top line would be Royalton I believe. Heard rumors that they are going to stop making them though.
In the older- pre -IP&A pipes the Eldorado is top of the line,followed by the Viscount.

In the lines made for the RJ Reynolds coupon offers the Emperor is tops,followed by the Westbrook IIRC.

What could be considered the "Holy Grail" of Sparta made pipes is the "Unique". Only 500 were made. All were handmade by two employees at the Sparta factory.
