I recentley bought a pipe on ebay, and am not sure who made it. the letters BW are on a brown lucite stem. the bowl appears to be made of olive wood (also wondering how this smokes). i'm wondering if it could be a DON FLORIAN pipe, but am not sure. can anyone help. thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.

Hmm. I have no clue who made that but it's nice. It looks like it has an oil finish. It does look like olivewood. Nice one.

Pipes like that are pretty far off the beaten path, Gunny.

Hello Leatherneck

BW on the stem might be a Ben Wade. Is there a crown stamp over the BW? If so, it looks to me like a Ben Wade ( Preben Holm ) stem that has been inserted in an olive wood bowl. I doubt it is a Ben wade made bowl, as the only Danish carver working with olive wood is Benner.

Regards

I think Mike's got it. cheers

I thought Ben Wade as well, but didn't make the re-cycled stem connection he did.

at first, i too thought ben wade and that a different stem was added to this pipe. but looking in pipedia there are no markings that associate this style of "BW" to ben wade. thanks for your post. GYSGT T.A.WIENS USMC

Is this the one?
I agree with BriarBlues. It's probably a recycled stem from a Ben Wade Pipe.
