Bjarne, asymmetric bowl correction plus bronze ring.

Post by Sid.Stavros » Mon Jun 04, 2018 2:14 am

Couple of years back i had a Bjarne pipe bought from e-store, when the pipe arrived i saw by surprise that the bowl was asymmetric!
I wanted to return the pipe back but i read that the Bjarne Nielsen past away so i decided to keep it and make some corrections.

So i started the sandpaper plus painting work and i added a bronze ring so after few weeks looked like this:

You can see the procedure step by step here: http://pipe-smoke.blogspot.gr/2010/02/7.html
The pipe code is: M7-16

I can't really see the asymmetry you speak of; but if it were me, I would have left it so.

But anyway it's a nice pipe, and nice work.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

The modification was some years ego that's why the photos aren't so good and don't show many details.
As i look the bowl from the front on the left side was a "bulge" that's why you see in the photos so many sandpapers used.

I think now it's better to understand

Interesting, I like the bronze ring! I also respect how you take your pipes and make them your own!
