Interesting, sounds like an Atherton-esque set of pipes.

I used to think purely hand turned was the way to go but honestly having consistency with CNC for threading, mounts, ferrules etc with finishing by hand makes consistent instruments. Always a balance I believe.

Hi, they look very good. I had a look at some of the other sets as well - very interesting. I wonder if they have their own turner or if they contract out?

Cheers, will

Yes, they look very good. Oddly the ivory was not skimmed perfectly, the remains of the yellow stain look somewhat unnatural.

Yes I noticed that too. I wonder if at least some of it is because the old ivory was lying against a rotting pipe bag - that stains well into the ivory from the sets I have see in the past. Cheers, will
