Lets see your BIG PIPEs

I dont have any info on the BIG PIPE other than they were made at Sparta.

Anyone have an idea when they were made?

Lets see your BIG PIPEs

I'll go first

Here's my two. The bent has been restemmed by Ed James for me making it a non-filter. The billiard came from the back room at the DG Factory on this year's tour and has had the original finish removed. It is still a filter pipe:




The most unusual Big Pipe I have had was this free hand verified by Ted as having been made in the Sparta factory. It now resides in Ed James extensive collection of Grabows:




I believe the Big Pipe's production started under Lane Ltd. Ownership of Grabow in the early 1990s.

Here's my fat billiard.

There's a Billiard style BIG PIPE on Ebay now.  Too pricey for me but a good looking pipe.

Ed that amber stem is sweeet. Nice pipes fellas.

Why are the Big Pipes made without a stem spade?

I'm not sure of the story as to why they are not branded as Grabow...no spade, and no Grabow stamp.  I have seen maybe one BP which also had a Grabow stamp.  My chubby billiard above has it now.  Wink  Since they stamped it Grabow at the factory for me, I may go ahead and add a spade...why not.

I really like that little pipe-although I don't smoke it. It is the worst drilled Grabow pipe I have ever seen. Draft hole is about 1/2" above bottom of bowl !! I ain't that picky about drilling.A bit high or off center doesn't hurt a thing,but that pipe drives me nuts when I look at it. Shocked

This is my only Big Pipe.
