2002: The pipes started to be stamped with a date reference. It is a "50/2" stamp.

  • 50: was Bruto’s age in 2002
  • 50/2=25: is exactly the years that Bruto spent in making pipes in 2002 (starting in 1977).

2003: No date reference stamped.

2nd April 2005: "28" stamp... and so on

Author's note: a convoluted dating system!
