COLIN'S BLOG: ACROSS THE COUNTER

Colin Wesley - always ready to chat .... across the counter!

Replacing Lorenzo

We miss Riccardo, and the Lorenzo ranges of pipes he developed into such popular shapes and sizes.
We remember the medium size “Pavia” range and the larger “Filtro” pipes – both made in the Albanian factory using Albanian briar and artisans – which improved over the years into very acceptable and well-priced pipes.
Now no more.

Fortunately we knew that we could rely on the family who manufactures our Marca pipes to help us to fill the gaps.
First was the Marca Mini – and we’re very pleased with the results. Of the retail outlets which bought our 12-pipe offer, two have already made repeat purchases.

Now we are releasing the Marca Medio R595.00.
They have well-proportioned medium-size bowls and are very similar in size to the Lorenzo “Pavia”.
They also offer a 6mm ”filter” option suitable for charcoal or meerschaum cartridges, or for balsa inserts.

And remember – the pipes must be smoked with the filter or an adapter (provided). If not, the juices that condense and are filtered out naturally by the pipe will collect in the shank and may cause it to swell and crack.

We offer 6 shapes, each available smooth or sandblast:

Genuine Sandblast
Marca Medio Sandblasted briar pipes

 

Burgundy, available in shapes Med2 & Med5

Black, available in shapes Med4 & Med6

Tan, available in shapes Med1 & Med3

 

Glowing Smooth
Marca Medio Polished finish briar pipes

 

Shades of Amber, available in shapes Med1, Med2, Med3, Med4 & Med6

Rich Burgundy (right in picture), shape Med5

Each shape available in the approximate colour pictured.

Coincidentally – we received an email asking about a pipe smoking “Starter Kit”.
Our previous kit had sold out, and we weren’t able to replace the case.
But we realised we could put one together again, this time using the tobacco pouches recently arrived. We fit the pouch with Tool, Cleaners, Filters/adapter,…………….
– and the Marca Medio pipe would be perfect for a new pipe smoker:
Not too big – it is easier to keep the pipe going for a short time when you start;
Not too small – you need some time to practice keeping it alight;
Well priced – there is always a question of how long the idea will last;
Lightweight – to reduce strain on the teeth, preferably bent or half-bent; all the Medio pipes are light for their size.
Suitable for easy-burning tobaccos.
We’ve chosen a pouch which will hold all of the above, with room for a second pipe when you’ve settled in.
The tobacco section will hold a complete 50g packet, or 50-80g of our loose Houseblends.
The set includes leaflets “The Complete Pipesmoker”, and how to find “The Perfect Blend”.

Watch out for the “Medio Starter Kit”, ready soon.

To introduce you to our new arrivals -

We offer less 25% on the new range of “Marca Medio” pipes.
Normal price R595.00
Valid January 27 to February 9, 2022

Whether you are just starting, or whether you prefer a medium size bowl for your choice of tobacco, the Marca Medio will offer you the opportunity to achieve the cool, dry smoke that all pipesmokers aim for.

Enjoy your pipe smoking pastime!
