Artisan: Brian Ruthenberg started to carve pipes in 2001 on part time. In 2005 he went fulltime at making high grade pipes.

Until Oct 2002 pipes are stamped "BAR" (carver's initials).

Early grading (canceled in 2002) (ascending): 04, 03, 02, 01, 00. Semi-rusticated and rusticated were stamped R1 and R2.

From 2002 on the identification became "RUTHENBERG" (arched) over "USA" over "HANDMADE" (straight)

The pipes are year dated: 03 = 2003

"Caliper" (or compass) grade: exceptional pipes with perfectly centered straight grain or regular ring grain.

Pipes marked with an "F" (Flawed/Filled) are not to be sold. They are gifts or smoked by the artisan himself.
