This nice canadian shape pipe from 1950s required some more efforts than an usual pipe. First of all the stain and varnish was destroyed over many years and we decided to remove them all except pipe markings area. Second problem was a lost or damaged part of an air cooler and we had to buff remaining part and slightly modify the stem. So there’s nice stylish canadian with a hint on a rarity!

The pipe markings are “KAYWOODIE \ Standard \ IMPORTED BRIAR” and “71”. The length is 14.2 cm, bowl’s hight is 4.2 cm. External and internal diameters of the bowl are 2.8 cm and 2.0 cm. The depth is 3.7 cm and this pipe weights 22 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The tobacco chamber is cleaned till wood.

    I actually have a Kaywoodie #165 which is actually a shape 71. It is a three digit Kaywoodie. When I bought the pipe it came from a collection of a man who passed away and his wife was selling off his pipes. I bought two from her, this one and a Kaywoodie #10 Standard bent. They were professionally cleaned by the late husband’s friend who restored pipes. It was hard to track down information on this pipe because of it being three digits but I finally found it on an article from the current owner and pipe maker from Kaywoodie.

      As far I can remember three digits Kaywoodie were produced only during a few years in 1970s, correct?

    It didn’t say the years they were made. I’m pretty sure Kaywoodie stopped making the three digit pipes with stingers in the 1970s. They are my favorite pipe brand. I have one newer pipe that was made last year but the rest of my woodies are from 1940s to the 1970s.
