GRADING 2019 /?
With my moveing to Ireland I made some simple changes to the grading of my pipes. From June 2019 they are branded with the circle wording “G. Penzo Pipe Made in Ireland” that identifies the manufacturer and the place of production. It containing a symbol, a letter and a number.
The symbols (mountain, shell, flame, R) identify the rusticated, sandblasted, smooth and Rudegar finishing.
The letters (A or B) indicate the actual value of the pipe.
The numbers indicate the year of production.
In High Grade Rudegar pipes, the branding consists in the wording “G. Penzo Pipe Made in Ireland” containing an R and a number indicating the year of production.
