Colin Fromm was responsible for Invicta Briars handmade pipes at one time, and they had a line of pipes made for sale in North America, Castleford. Castleford pipes consist of two types, those stamped Hand Made by Colin Fromm, and the rest which appear to be machine phrased pipes ala Dunhill and Ferndown, finished by his two assistants. Castleford tobacco pipes are handmade in England by master craftsmen using Italian briar. Although now retired, Colin Fromm’s superior carving skills contributed to the success of this English brand. You’ll see his influence everywhere when you smoke a pipe from Castleford. The group sizes and standards may look familiar. They match the standards of Dunhill.
