My brother found six NOS unsmoked Yello-Bole, Kaywoodie & Medico Pipes


Blog by Steve Laug

I got a call from my brother when he was driving from Idaho to Nebraska that he had scored a batch of New Old Stock (NOS) unsmoked pipes at an antique shop. These were some beauties he said and the price was right. From left to right in the first photo and from top to bottom in the second and third photo, there was a Yello-Bole Checker Acorn, a Kaywoodie Campus small Rhodesian/Prince, a Kaywoodie Campus Dublin (both of the Campus pipes had a spear shaped stinger), a Kaywoodie Super Grain S-L (with a three hole stinger), a Yello-Bole Collegiate Rhodesian with the bowl insert in place, and a Medico Tuxedo Acorn. These pipes are in excellent unsmoked condition. They will eventually go on the rebornpipes store for sale but I am putting them up as a blog if anyone is interested in purchasing any or all of them let me know. Don’t wait for them to go up on the store.NOS1 NOS3NOS2I took individual photos of each of the pipes to give a good picture of the look and the condition of each of them. The first one is the Yello-Bole Checker Acorn. The pipe is 5 ½ inches long, 1 ½ inches tall, the diameter of the bowl is ¾ of an inch, the external diameter of the bowl is 1 1/8 inches. It has the Yello-Bole spade stinger that is removable is you chose to do so.NOS4 NOS5 NOS6 NOS7The second pipe is a Kaywoodie Campus small Rhodesian/Prince. The shape is more of a Prince but it has the Rhodesian top cap with a single ring separating the bowl from the cap. The pipe is 5 inches long, 1 inch tall, the diameter of the bowl is ¾ of an inch, the external diameter of the bowl is 1 ½ inches. It has the integrated KW stinger/tenon that is non-removable. It is not the typical ball stinger but rather a spear head shaped stinger.NOS8 NOS9 NOS10 NOS11The third pipe is a Kaywoodie Campus small Dublin. It is a dainty, almost pencil shank pipe. The pipe is 5 inches long, 1 ½ inch tall, the diameter of the bowl is ¾ of an inch, the external diameter of the bowl is 1 inch. It has the integrated KW stinger/tenon that is non-removable. It is not the typical ball stinger but rather a spear head shaped stinger.NOS12 NOS13 NOS14 NOS15The fourth pipe is a Medico Tuxedo Acorn. The tenon is the typical Medico metal tenon that holds their patented paper filters. The length of the pipe is 5 inches, the height of the bowl is 1 3/8 inches. The diameter is of the chamber is ¾ of an inch and the diameter of the bowl is 1 inch.NOS16 NOS17 NOS18 NOS19The fifth pipe is a Yello-Bole Collegiate Thin Rhodesian. The pipe is 5 ½ inches long, 1 ½ inches tall, the diameter of the bowl is ¾ of an inch, the external diameter of the bowl is 1 inch. It has the Yello-Bole spade stinger that is removable is you chose to do so. The bowl has the round bowl insert that caps the new Yello-Bole pipes. It sits in the bowl and reads Honey Caked Bowl over Guaranteed Burn-out Proof. It is a great piece of Yello-Bole history.NOS20 NOS21 NOS22 NOS23 NOS24The sixth pipe is a Kaywoodie Super Grain S-L Apple. It is a combination sandblast and rusticated bowl and shank. The pipe is 5 ½ inches long, 1 ½ inches tall, the diameter of the bowl is ¾ of an inch, the external diameter of the bowl is 1 1/4 inches. It has the integrated KW stinger/tenon that is non-removable. It is a three hole typical KW stinger with a ball on the end.NOS25 NOS26 NOS27 NOS28Once again all of these pipes are unsmoked. They are NOS – New Old Stock pipes. All of them are for sale as individual pieces or as a set. Contact me through email at slaug@uniserve.com or leave a response here following the blog. Thanks for looking.
