Rattrays - The Cave 90 (Terracotta)

Calculated at checkout


Product Description

The 90 is a solid and chunky billiard, with still contains the moisture trap.  Finished in the Terracotta stained, smooth with a nickel mount and acrylic stem. New for 2015 the Rattrays Cave pipes make use of, one of the many techniques used for a dry smoke. How the Rattrays system works is very similar to that of other manufactures, by adding a small moisture trap in the shank. This reservoir collects any condensed moisture from the burning tobaccos, but also any “smokers juices” that run back down the stem. This helps overcome the problems some smokers who like to hang the pipe from their mouth while smoking.  For those who are wet smokers, the army style stem allows the stem to be removed mid smoke and mopped dry with a pipe cleaner. 

Charles Rattray is still a well-known name in the pipe smoking world, his tobaccos are highly rated by connoisseur smokers. Located in Perth the Rattrays tobacconist not only sold tobaccos, but like most tobacconists blended on site too. His skills with tobacco eventually saw the shop become a blending house in its own right. While Charles never produced his own pipes, he worked closely with English pipe makers for his own shop pipes. In more recent years the Perth factory has now closed and the brand was saved by German blending master Kohlhouse & Kopp.

O Kopp has been the driving force behind the Rattrays pipes, using a number of traditional makers in St Claude (Chacom & Butz Choquin) and also by factories in Italy. The use of various makers allows the collection to have a very wide range of shapes, made using mass production methods dating back over 100 years. Not afraid to go against the flow, the collection contains shapes which have become desirable and very rarely produced.

  1. Rattray Straight Cave 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Mar 2018

    A filter pipe, which I smoke with a 3mm adaptor. Fantastic looking pipe, big, flawless billiard; beautiful polish. I'm still seasoning it, but it smokes like a blast furnace all the way down. Easy to clean. Brilliant service from GQT.
