26 points description

Chicagoland Pipe and Cigar Club held its annual Show April 23-25, 1999 and I was delighted to attend. One of the dealers there, Jim Tedesco, had a large selection of pyrolytic graphite pipes. They had been so well cleaned and reconditioned that they looked like new. We hemmed and hawed and dickered. Finally, I got about 30 pipes from him. This is one of them. It was the exemplar of the color/shape in the collection for many years, but finally a once-smoked pipe in its original box came my way and this one has gone to the Pipes for Trade page. Steve Ciesicki bought for a friend to whom he has introduced these pipes.
