    Bing Crosby's pipe?????

    My wife and I were watching White Christmas lastnight and about half way through Bing Crosby was smoking a long, straight stem briar pipe.

    My wife was asking me what pipe it was and who made it. I believe that she wants to get me one for Christmas.

    Does anyone know anything about Bing's pipe?

    Thanks
    Ken

    Several pipe makers make a "Bing." This one's a Savinelli.

    I have been trying to find a picture of the pipe used in the movie and found 1 picture that has a pipe that looks like what he was smoking. Not a very good picture though.

    The Savinelli's look close but I don't believe the stem has any bend.

    The original pipes were made for him by the Tinder Box, in LA, I think...the style is sort of like a Canadian with a longer stem...the style is now made by several pipe manufacturers so anyone's brand would be good depending on how much she wanted to spend...as you can see from the above link, Savinelli makes one in several finishes costing between $56 and $96...Savinelli is a good pipe if you don't have one...there are others that make the style and I'm sure you could find them from around $50 on up to several hundred dollars...
    There is as much water on Earth now as three billion years ago. While the amount of water has remained static, the amount of Tequila and Triple Sec available for making Margaritas has expanded enormously. So you see, we have made progress after all.

    Thank you very much for all of the information.

    I don't think Tinder Box makes cigars anymore so I will show my wife the Savinelli's.

    Thanks again and have a great day.

    That is also a Savonelli. They have Bing's favorite & Clark's favorite.

    I stopped by the Tinder Box last night and asked about the Bing and the Clark.

    They said they couldn't get the Clark and the Savonelli Bing would be around $250. I wonder what he was smoking????

    Maybe Bing used the $250 pipe to beat the crap out of his kids.

    Bill was from Tacoma Wa. I wonder if it was the Hilltop (not very nice) area?

    At that price I would consider commissioning a carver to carve a pipe in that shape.

    You'll get a much finer pipe and form a relationship in the process!

    I know a couple guys I'd recommend...
