During the years, I developed a simple grading system in order to facilitate customer choice.
My grades are: R, B, A and AA.
Grade R are rusticated or sandblasted pipes.
Grade B are majority of the pipes he makes: polished and perhaps with some small surface defects or just the grain being not quite perfect.
Grade A are polished pipes with very good balance and grain corresponding to the shape.
No surface defects are allowed.
Grade AA are rather exceptional pieces in terms of materials, final result, balance and craftsmanship.
There is no difference with smoking capabilities between the grades!
