    • A cool thing about Winslow pipes is that Paol specifically says that his entry line briars smoke as well as his top of the line. His grading is focused on presence or absence of grain, minor defects and added touches. Yes, we all “know” that about pipes, but Paol is the only one who fesses up, that I know of. Others kinda fudge the point.

    • @KevinM I'd say on balance most pipemakers these days are pretty upfront about their grading conventions, be it solely grain based or a mix of shaping/execution and grain. But yeah, Poul is pretty no-nonsense, which is easy to appreciate.

    • I have owned a Poul Winslow Crown Collection pipe for 17 years and from the very first smoke, it has been a great pipe; one of the best in my entire collection.

    • @David Daack Thanks for the feedback, David. We're stoked you're happy with it -- though maybe not all that surprised ;)
