The better half is studying abroad and gave me this Falcon that was made in England. Smokes really, really well after a little sanding and some time on the trippoli wheel I'm really happy with how it came out. I forgot take a picture of it before I started because I'm a fool but here she is all cleaned up.

Looks great. I'm tempted to try one of those. They have to be a pretty decent pipe because of their ubiquity over the years. Do you happen to know if current production is of high a quality as the older ones? And they're a very light pipe, right? I like "light," one of the reasons I worship at the altar of corn cobdom.

FWIW, the story of the company is available on Kindle. Can't remember the title, nor can I remember to purchase a copy.

I can't speak for the quality of the recently made pipes but I have to say this was just a great smoke. I was smoking some wet aromatic out of it while walking around and had a very dry cool smoke. It's a lighter pipe, very easy to clench but doesn't feel like it's too flimsy.

This might be a book for me to enjoy over the winter, thanks for the heads up.

Edit: Here's the E-book, or theres the $150 paper back edition.Amazon Link

Cool

Falcons are really wonderful and that looks like a beauty! That book is fascinating by the way. It gives a real insiders look at the twists and turns that occur in a unique business.

Looks all most new again sir! Wink
I noticed you have what looks to be a Beall buffing system set up on your lathe.
Do you carve pipes or wood lathe work also?

I actually do carve some pipes with another briar brother who goes by smg913. We just put a website up with some of our work if anyone cares to take a look any feedback would be great. Our site is right here
