An Orlik Pipe Shape Booklet

Blog by Steve Laug

If you have followed rebornpipes for any length of time you know that I love older Orlik pipes and have restored and/or repaired many. I have several older Orlik Dugout cased pipes in my collection. The pipes are to my eye quintessential British pipes in classic shapes and styles. They are well made and have a lot of charm to them. The ones that I have vary between small (Group 1-2 Dunhill sizes) to medium (Group 2-3 Dunhill sizes). Needless to say when this booklet was posted on the Pipe Club of Brasil Facebook Group by Victor C. Naddeo who is the Administrator of that group I snagged a copy. To me it not only provides some of the background history that is hard to find on these pipes but also a wishbook of shapes that I would love to add to the collection. I decided to preserve it on rebornpipes. The shape book is a great addition to my historical documents section on the blog. Thank you Victor for posting this and the other booklets that you have been sharing. I am really enjoying the current batch of posts that you are putting on the Pipe Club Brasil Group. I invite others to check out the group on Facebook. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1001391469961131/
