Pipe Stanwell Christmas

This time of the year is always special for the pipe lovers, because in this periode there are always appearing great Christmas editions from several pipe brands. Most famous for their Christmas edition is Peterson. But now I have some real beauties from Stanwell. The Stanwell X-Mas pipes are really great. I love them! Especially the rustic version is very beautiful, rustic is normally not my kind of favorite, but this one is very well made.
I think both pipes are ver expensive, but it will be worth.

The new Zippo Special of the Month is again available. The November release is a beautiful lighter with a snow boarder. This satin chrome Zippo has been bi-tone engraved, so you can perfectly see the image in black and gold coloured teints.

Zippo Limited Edition Lion on Top

There is some great art work done. I was amazed how beautiful it was, I need to show it. I have many limited editions, but this Zippo is really awesome. It is a high polish chrome Zippo lighter with a beautiful lion on top. Normally there are always emblems on the front, but not often you see them on top. This is a must have for each collector, but those are very rare, only 500 pieces were made.

Early Freehand Pipes from Big Ben

Today I was very lucky. I got a visit from the sales representive from Gubbels, the company who is manufacturing Big Ben. They recently moved to another building and they find a lot of older stuff, what is really great. At the moment Big Ben isn't making any freehand pipes, but in the early years they did. I could buy the whole bunch, and sure I did. It was for a lot of money, but it was worth buying it, because each pipe is very special and unic. There are pipes with beautiful grains, birds eyes and of course very great shapes and designs. There are a few pipes listed, but I will add more the next few weeks: Pipe Big Ben Specials & Freehands
