The Heirloom pipes were hand-carved briar heads and correspond to a re-introduction of the carved heads Kaywoodie produced in the 1930's. Heirloom pipes produced in the late 1950's until 1963 were available in 3 carvings: the nobleman (pipe above), the satan and the prophet. According to Dennis Moore they were carved by Charlie Ware († 1963) at the Kaywoodie plant.
