We've never had a pipe stamped "Double Thumb" before, so our archives were no help here. A little searching however turned up a thread at Pipes Magazine's forums in which a past customer of the namesake shop had chimed in. Turns out the proprietor was a former actor (roles included playing a Keystone Cop) who'd named his pipe shop after one of his own thumbs, which sported not one, but two distal phalanges. As for this pipe itself, while there are some clearly evident fills, the grain is otherwise very impressive.
