COLIN'S BLOG: ACROSS THE COUNTER
Colin Wesley - always ready to chat .... across the counter! STANWELL PIPES:
What’s new?
  • In 1942 the name and the concept of wanting to sound English was introduced to Denmark and to Danish pipes – the name Stanwell was chosen – undoubtedly not new today.
    Then the company registered their shapes which were first created by Danish Carver Sixten Ivarsson. Many were modifications of classic English pipe shapes. And many of which
    still survive in their elegant fashion today. Nothing new there.

  • At the time, a template to turn 4 bowls at a time was new – widely in use today.

  • When Stanwell introduced them acrylic mouthpieces were new, as were the Delrin pegs to offer the 9mm filter option – not new now.

  • The Vario finish with its polished thumb rubbing patches was once new, not anymore.
    STANWELL HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN PIPES - GIFT BOXED

  • New to us, but not new to Stanwell - Hans Christian Andersen Shape 7 (right) Smooth and sandblast.

  • Their most recent innovation was the use of glass beads for “sandblasting”.
    These are less aggressive towards the briar and used under a lower pressure; more time consuming,
    but creating a much more defined and detailed finish. No longer new.

  • A characteristic of Stanwell pipes that has never wavered or been tampered with is their smoking quality – certainly not changed or new.

Adding these widely accepted qualities to the succession of new ideas, one had to start wondering what next “new” would occur to reward new or established pipe smokers when buying a Stanwell pipe.

NEW:
It was announced in July - the biggest warehouse pipe sale we have ever been offered.

The pipes on offer all come from those which we normally buy.
We didn’t really throw caution to wind, but we bought enough to add in our existing stock and average the overall prices.
They are down by R200 – R500, with the Vario under R1000.

And if that’s not enough …..

September 19 – October 2, 2019
25% off the NEW prices of Stanwell pipes.
Prices from  R995.00

A friend of mine once told me to always look at the downside before making a decision.
The Downside?
We are unlikely to be offered these substantial discounts again.
So the next and following shipments, even though we average with existing stock, will definitely increase in price.
It follows ….

Now is the time to add a Stanwell pipe to your collection!
