COLIN'S BLOG: ACROSS THE COUNTER

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

Across the email “counter”

We do get some interesting questions emailed to us.
Some of which send us delving deep into our memory bank, and some of which require the help of the Internet.
Here is one that brought up the subject of “a stubby pipe”.
That is a pipe with a relatively normal size bowl, but a shorter stem than normal proportions.

So when would you prefer such a pipe?
After all, we’ve talked about longer stem Canadians and Churchwardens being effective in cooling the smoke.
We’ve talked about small-bowled pipes being ideal for a 10 minute smoke.

But what if you’d like your normal length smoke?
A pipe that has your normal bowl size - but a longer stem, even a normal length stem, would be in the way – maybe in the car, at your desk, relaxing with a good book, just to carry around.
That’s when a “stubby” pipe would fill the bill.

We scanned our website.
