|Frank Axmacher #425143PN
|I know it's irrelevant, but whenever I need to describe a Frank
Axmacher pipe, I can't help thinking how much I like the
gentleman. He is a pleasure to be around and talk to,
especially when the conversation goes deep into the night and
concerns many issues, including pipes and other pipe makers,
but also personal history. And since we're on the subject, you
can include Jurgen Moritz in there, too. Back to pipes. This is
what I would call a typical Axmacher, with the bone shank
extension & a military touch to the stem/shank treatment. The
size is Grp. 5, the cond. is exc., the draw is wide-open and the
stem is vulcanite (I need to clean it up, but that's easy). Used.
5" long, bowl 1.8" tall. Weight: 1.75 oz., 50 grams. $285.
