I've been a big fan of Tadeusz Polinski's pipes and never see any pic's of them on the BOB so i thought i'd start a thread on them. For anyone who doesn't know of this work he's an amazing pipemaker from Poland who's attention to fit & finish is flawless. To date i only have 4 of his pieces but they all smoke like dream.
First is a Pick Axe


My Polish Poker (Pun intended)


Polinski Cone Oom Paul


And a Rock Oom Paul

Thanks.
He's got a website polinskipipes.com but the English link is limited.
I've picked up all mine thru ebay from Roman Sobczak "House of Pipe" from Warsaw Poland and he's been great to deal with. I don't know how he does it but most of my pipes have arrived in 9 days for only $10.00 shipping. Which is quite unusual for shipping to Canada as most parcel's seem to get held up at customs for a week or two.

Me too, it's the pipe that got me hooked on Oom Pauls/full bent pipes. Nice for working in the shop with being able to keep your hands free.

Prices have been down the last couple of weeks and i noticed this week that he doesn't have many unfiltered pipes.I have 2 of each and they all smoke great. Good luck & glad i could help a Brother, hopefuly the ones i don't win will go to good homes here at BOB.

On the filtered pipes, have you smoked them without filters?

No i haven't, did find that i prefer them with with the 9mm Savinelli Balsa filters rather than the ones they came with thou. But that's what i'm used to in all my filtered pipes. I'm sure the draw would be fine without a filter as long as you packed your pipe accordingly. They seem to list more filtered pipes for a while then go back to non filtered. Maybe being as they are from Europe the non filtered one's usually seem to be a bit cheaper.

Also noticed that the stems on the non filtered pipes seem to be of better quality than the filtered ones i have. The tendon on one of the filtered pipes is very thin.

Absolutely beautiful pipes! Nice to see something other than the normal shapes being produced too. I guess they're great smokers?

Polinski's are becoming my new favorite pipes. My first was the bent poker, which I am smoking in my avatar. I posted a picture of it below. I bid on another this week and am keeping my fingers crossed. They are hefty, solid pipes crafted with great attention to detail. Mine smokes cool and dry. Of all my pipes, it is by far my favorite to smoke. Right now they can be had for $50-$80 on ebay -- a steal in my opinion.

They all smoke great. The only other pipe in my collection that comes close is my favorite, an old Pete XL02s.
About his shapes, he's always switching it up which keeps me wanting more. There have been 4-5 others i'd like to get but have been out of my price range. Maybe someday. Should be another in the mail this week, will post pic's when it arrives.

Just recieved this blasted cone Oom Paul yesterday and breaking it in with some Frog Across The Pond. Really enjoying this blend and looking forward to trying the rest of the Frog series.
Of the five Polinski's i have so far this is the first one with any cosmetic issue's. There is a very slight gap on the bottom where the shank & stem meet and the 9mm tendon is quite thin on this one compared to the other two but for $72.00 delivered i can't complain. The stem quality on the non filtered pipes seems to be a bit better. The drilling on this one is spot on as with all the others.



Really like the way these cone pipes hang, very comfortable when working hands free with alot less weight than the Rock Oom Paul model.

Very nice pipe, Hawker. I'm noticing that the price is climbing up each week on these guys. Just saw a similar one go for $180+. Looks like the cat's out of the bag Sad

If i'd payed that for a pipe with gap in the shank i would be very dissapointed. I think when a pipe gets up to around the $200 dollar mark it should be flawless or it's hard to justify not just spending less on a well built Sav or Pete.

So far i've been very pleased with what i have recieved for my money spent & will have to be patient by the looks of the way some of the bidding is going to win more. I've noticed that alot of the same identical pipes from weeks & months past are going to the same buyer. Must be re-selling them.

Bought this Polinski Massive Bent Rock on May 15th and it arrived yesterday. cheers



I was surprised with the size of this pipe upon arrival, it's Length = 5.51", Bowl Height = 2.16", Bowl Chamber = 0.86"
and is quite a bit bigger than my Pete XL02. I've taken a picture with it along side my Tinsky XMas & a Boswell Fishing pipe for comparison. Even with the size of this pipe it's still a clencher with the way it rests on my chin size & weight isn't a problem. The 9mm tennon is a little thicker on this pipe (which i prefer) than on my Cone and the drilling fit & finish is perfect. Put a bowl of Burlington's Sunday Afternoon Pipe thru it last night & it smoked like a dream.

With the size & comfort of this pipe (and the other two) i think i'm going to put a slight bit more bend in my Boswell Fishing/Shooting pipe to simulate the way it fits like the others

That's a beauty, Hawk. I was watching that one myself. Just love the proportions of these Polinskis.

This isn't the one that was up for bids, it went out of my price range($180.00) so i contacted him thru ebay and he had another and accepted my offer. cheers

Oh wow. Great idea! That shape has been going around the $150 range -- as I'm sure you know. Beautiful pipe, Hawker. Enjoy it in health.

Thought I'd post some pictures of my new Polinski, although pics just aren't going to do it justice. First of all, the size of this pipe is something to behold. Hawker stated the same thing about his latest Polinski. I posted a pic of it next to my Peterson 80s. It could literally fit 2 or 3 of those pipes in it. The rustification is gorgeous, the stem tight fitting, there are no fills, and it passes a pipe cleaner easily -- a nice wide saddle bit, too (my favorite). I spoke in an earlier post about the proportions of these pipes. They really are balanced and aesthetically pleasing -- a very masculine aesthetic. BTW, it took 9 days to arrive!
