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 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.
The Stanwell Night & Day No.233 is a stunning half bent Apple of good proportions. It has good chunky walls and shank to give the pipe strength and prevent it over heating, which prevents the pipe overheating and keeps the smoke cool and sweet as it should be. Stanwell have really created something beautiful with this series as a Dark smokey finish on the bowl contrasts beautifully with the Rim of the bowl and band on the shank that are polished with a clear finish to highlight the quality Briar grain. The Smokey stain does wonders for the grain, which can often be hidden with dark stains.
9mm Absorbent Filter
The Stanwell Night & Day 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.
