There’s probably no other local so much appreciated and collected trade mark on the other side of Sea than Doctor Grabow. In despite of democratic price and positioning as a mass market product many American pipe smoker like their Grabows, smoke with please and even take pictures with the favorite pipe somewhere between American prerias or snows. Highly expreinces gurus discuss patent numbers and shapes of say “Royal Duke” pipes made by Dr. Grabow.

But we are toking today about another Royal Duke, not from Dr. Grabow. That’s really interesting: the same brand was produced in 1960-70s in the UK by Hardcastle and Comoy’s. Of course it’s not a highest grade pipe, but it can be proud by the great parents, it remains unsmoked and it’s completed with an original pouch and a box (the box has been slightly fixed after many years of storing somewhere).

The pipe markings are “Royal Duke \ LONDON MADE”, “361”. The length is 13.3 cm, bowl’s hight is 3.7 cm. External and internal diameters of the bowl are 3.1 cm and 2.0 cm. The depth is 3.0 cm and this pipe weights 27 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
