THE GREAT DANE!
Stanwell is the rock of the pipe world. As many brands go in and out of fashion through the decades so does their quality and reputation. Ever since WWII Stanwell has consistently delivered quality Briars that smoke cool and outlast pipes of twice the price. They were the Pioneers of the high end factory made pipes. Before Stanwell if you wanted a high quality Briar you bought a hand made with the associated price tag as it was near on impossible to produce a high end pipe on a production line. Stanwell revolutionised the approach to pipe manufacturing with a state of the art manufacturing process that took high end Briar blocks but through efficiency reduced labour times and therefore the price tag. The process still required over 120 stages to produce a finished piece but a modern approach and an emphasis on attention to detail by experienced craftsmen took the factory produced pipe to a whole new level. To this day Stanwell still have the most modern pipe factory in the world and still source only high end Briar blocks.
The Stanwell 109 is a lovely flat flat bottomed shallow diplomat shaped Briar Pipe finished in the stunning amber stain, which highlights the grain beautifully. It has a good thickness to the Briar walls to keep the pipe from overheating and the smoke cool and sweet. The shape is very comfortable in the hand and is almost flat bottomed so stands un-aided so reduces mess while the pipe is resting and more importantly reduces grief from the other half.
9mm Absorbent Filter
The Stanwell Amber Light are designed for use with the absorbent 9mm Filters. The larger diameter allows more smoke to pass through the filter, with less restriction, which makes for a better draw compared to the 6mm filters. The 9mm pipe filters has a very high surface area resulting in excellent absorption of the tar as the smoke passes through without affecting draw or flavour.
No mess no fuss, simply throw the filter in the bin when it turns a dark brown colour.
The pipes have a standard 9mm bore so can be used with any brand of 9mm filter if preferred. Alternatively the filter can be removed altogether for smokers who prefer a totally un-restricted full on smoke.
