I bought 2 for $20. $10 ea.
On the side of one is inscribed:
Mastersen
Freehand
Briar Israel

and the second:
redonian de luxe
London made

Anyone heard of these brands?
Did I get a deal?
Carry on!

I haven't heard of them - so I didn't post. But if they're smokable and you like 'em - then you got a great deal!

possible to use a dremel wheel. There's buffer thingys you can get. The rag wheel would do okay. Be gently. Probably don't want to hit the stem - easy to burn. If you dremel is adjustable speed go slow.

Uhhh...

Or use a rag.

With a buffer you can use some brown tripoli (depending if you want to remove finish or not), the white stuff - whatever that's called, and carnuba was to finish.

If you're going it by hand - dunno. I tried the savinelli pipe polish stuff - but I don't think it was worth it. Maybe someone else has some suggestions.
