I bought long time ago this Stanwell Gilt Edged, was smooth, non-filter with black mouthpiece but has some scratches so i decided to change her completely.

Thanks for posting this, Sid. That had to be a lot of fun, huh?

As always, nice work Sid. Did your plan to preserve the stamping on the side of the pipe change, or is the photograph of the completed pipe reversed / flipped?

Thank you Gentlemen for your kindly comments! Image

@FredS : The photo is from the same side, this was an old modification and back in those days i was making a mistake which can be seen in the first photo, the logo's contour. A tiny 1mm mistake from the bit of the tool and everything is damaged, this happened here thus i covered a little bit the stamp. Since then i apply a different method and everything looks better.
