Cased pipe from the Reiss-Premier Corp. with a Redmanol stem and shank. The stems of Redmanol pipes usualy had a bone screw tenon.

Redmanol is not exactly a pipe brand but the name of a synthetic material, a phenol-formaldehyde resin very close to Bakelite, first developed in 1907 by Leo Hendrik Baekeland. Redmanol and also Condensite were competitors to Bakelite. The courts found that Redmanol and Condensite both infringed on Baekeland's patents, and in 1922 the three companies merged as the "Bakelite Company".

Some pipe brands having used Redmanol stems:

BBB, LHS (Redmanol line), Peterson (see broken Redmanol mouthpiece & replacement).

The "Reiner" brand was created by Reiner Klein in 1983. He mainly carved non-filter pipes which is rather rare for a German pipemaker. In 1989 Rüdiger Lutz Will bought the business and the brand. After 9 months Reiner Klein came back and stayed as Will's collaborator until 1997. During this period Reiner Klein was in charge of the production and R. L. Will dealed with marketing and design. When they split, the later continued to market "Reiner" pipes he designed and had them crafted in Germany, Denmark or Holland.
