I was wondering what was up but decided it better to observe the motto, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.” I knew you’d provide an explanation sooner or later.

Dark is bad…it hides things. Like makeup on clowns, mimes and painted “ladies”….they all have something to hide ….creeps me out😳

Dark is the traditional finish in the UK. It should not surprise us if an Irish pipemaker, so geographically close to the UK, and attentive to UK market preferences, should establish and re-establish deep stains on a regular basis.

Here’s hoping Pete’s next dark stain isn’t one of their rather-less-than-great varnishes.

I certainly agree with regard to tenon extensions on systems , Mark. I was surprised to find this 309’s stem has apparently been drilled to fit a 9mm filter . It’s a System 0 with that lovely dark red stain you mentioned . The feet of the letters and faux hallmarks are facing the stem , with the elliptical MADE IN over ENGLAND right at the back of the stummel just under the ferrule . I think this new dark stained line will sell really well .

Correction needed here – it’s not drilled for a filter , but the diameter of the tenon is a mm or so wider than the Standard 309 I’ve got .
