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 labor 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.

Stanwell Deluxe 179
The Stanwell 179 Briar Pipe is a characterful half bent pipe to emerge from Stanwells line up. It is a little different whilst remaining sophisticated. It has a classic apple shaped bowl, which is the most comfortable in the hand then rather than tapering off into the usual cylindrical shank it is squared off with rounded edges and has a graduating bend (if that makes any sense at all.) This must be a pipe makers nightmare but it does make for a stunning pipe. Not only does this make it aesthetically pleasing the shank is also much stronger, which will appeal to those pipe abusers out there.
