This is a very cool pipe. First, there’s a really well done blast. Second, the stummel is like other Canadians - oval and long-shanked. The strange part is the length of the stem which is about twice the length of a stem that I’d expect on this pipe. It’s a cool effect and, no doubt, a cool smoke. Being able to find nothing on Bronzruf, I talked with the folks at Iwan Ries. The Bronzruf was made in France by Genod and IRC sold them twenty or thirty years ago.
The condition of the pipe is perfect in all respects. It’s well drilled and the stem is Ebonite - no tooth marks. Very light!
