A Stanwell with an "S" and no crown, made in Denmark, in the 1960's. Was in pretty good shape. Bon Ami worked well to remove some heavy char from the rim, and "it hasn't scratched yet." Also some light tooth marks on the stem had to be sanded away.

Pretty good looking pipe for being nearly 60 years old .....

Nice, Goose.

Thanks. Quite a process removing teeth marks. I've gotten fooled thinking I've got them out, only to find later upon finish polishing that remnants remain. I now polish as I go along, to be sure.

I think I spent about 2 hours on that stem, but it was worth it. It really does now look & feel like a new pipe. Very gratifying and satisfying to achieve this level of restoration.

I just acquired my first of SlowToke's pipes, and I'm thrilled.
It's coming as an unsmoked estate from South Africa. Photos when it arrives - I hope it doesn't take forever to get here.

Blown away by yours, Pepik.
People speak of SlowToke's pipes in tones of awe and hushed reverence, and I can certainly see why.

Wow. That stem made of briar is miraculous. A whole heap of skill and patience to make that.

Here's a Savinelli 320 KS that I bought recently.

Image

It was NOS - with box and sock. The top of the stem was badly oxidized; consequently, the price was very low. A few minutes with some micro mesh pads and a rub with Obsidian Oil cleaned it up pretty well.

This one is going up to school.

"Meet with them in December". What does that mean? And which year?

Just in case... nobody ships pipes to heaven, Ok? And we do not hold pipes for pick-up in Beelzebub's.
While USPS is really bad, four and half months to delivery is excessive even for them.

Nice Upshall. If you rub it three times.... 8O

okay. I live in Argentina. Due to complicated customs regulations to buy from another country is cumbersome and not even arrive the packages to your house, but you have to withdraw it at the customs. So, since I travel to the USA in December, I'm buying some things that I will withdraw from a package reception service when I get there.

Got this from JB a few weeks ago, and I still can't believe he parted with it; it smokes as fine as it looks. Maybe better. Still, he didn't include any tobac samples when he shipped it.

Anyway I debated whether to post here or the pictures of pipes thread, and opted for here since the pic is not necessarily my favorite pic. After-all, I just set it up among the clutter on top of a file cabinet in the office and took the shot. Whole thing took 5 secs.

I feel honored to have the Teipen pipe that I have. As I've mentioned before, Wayne is able to work magic on briar and the pipe I have that was made by him makes every tobacco taste as sweet and as cool as vanilla ice cream.
