Ben Wade Choice Grain Smooth Poker (71R) (Family Era)

Product Number: 004-002-8306

From 1860 to 1962 Ben Wade was a family business, with a bit of production sabbatical taken during WWII after their factory in Leeds was bombed to pieces. Despite all the thousands of pipes that pass our way each year, I can't say we've seen a whole lot of surviving family-era BWs. Featuring a compact, lightweight design, this "71R" is a Poker of miniature proportions. Overall though, the real appeal of a pipe like this is that it's simply a part of English pipemaking history.
