Thanks for looking! I will be adding pipes in need of new stewards after I return to Bulgaria in February! All the pipes offered have been cleaned thoroughly, and are ready to be adopted! You can read about the story of each pipe and their restoration by searching The Pipe Steward. The price listed is for the pipe. Postage is paid for by the buyer (about 15$ to the US from Bulgaria or less in Europe – bundling multiple purchases is possible) but specific rates and options will be determined after receiving a mailing address. Payment can be via PayPal using my email address: ThePipeSteward@gmail.com. Contact me or leave a comment below with your questions.
If you do not see a pipe in the store, check out the possibilities in the For PipeDreamers’ Only section to commission a pipe for restoration! Patience is required!
A beautiful unmarked Bent Billiard number (362). The only indication of the origin of this pipe I found in Sozopol, Bulgaria, is the stem imprint which appears to be an ‘A’.

A Classic Kaywoodie Standard Author. The Author shape has a distinctive presence in the palm – balanced very nicely and a good pipe for casual reflection and reminiscing. It is probable that this American made Kaywoodie started its service in the 1960s. The rich, deep brown finish gives this Author a ‘smoking jacket’ air. To learn more about the restoration of the Kaywoodie’s go to this LINK. Ready to serve a new steward! SOLD
