Was browsing around Al Pascia's site and found these two VERY GOOD concise histories of Charatan pipes that some folks might find interesting

Yes, that is excellent. I had that one saved to PDF.

I'm completely unfamiliar with the "Underboar" pipes - sadly no picture is included. Has anyone seen one of these pipes?

Google is my friend...

This looks similar to the Comoys "Grand Slam" system. I have never seen one on a Charatan. I suspect most were removed and discarded.

Since they look to be from the pre Herman Lane era I would imagine they would be VERY HARD to find over here !!

There have been some really interesting gizmos applied to pipes over the years and this is a new one to me. Thanks for sharing the information guys!

cheers

Looks like a built in tamper that you could take out while smoking, and put it back in place when on the go. Would probably be a lot more functional that way.
