Picked up this beautiful Peterson Kapruf. I’ve got two more from the Kapruf series coming. I found a straight P-lip to be among my favorite pipes.

Started fixing up this GBD. The stem needs a bit more work but I wanted to get out and smoke it.

So it’s time for a little update. PAD is real. I’ve spent far too much time on Auctions and searching pipe websites. At first I just wanted a 7 day briar rotation to go with my cobs. Things got a little fuzzy after that.

At the moment there are 5 estate pipes on their way to me and I’ve decided to try my hand at pipe restoration.
I'm hoping you don't have tile floors. Otherwise that nice straight grain billiard on the top shelf is in jeopardy.

This GBD started out pretty sad when I got it so a good cleaning was in order.
