Last week I made a visit to Vancouver Island for work and stopped by and visited a good friend, Rob. We had a great visit and my daughter and I spent the night there. While there we looked at the pipes that Rob was working on and some of his recent Ebay pickups. During that time I fell for one of the pipes - a nice full bent apple. It is stamped Svendborg. I offered to buy it but Rob gifted me with it. This past weekend and last evening I worked on it. I detail the work on the blog http://rebornpipes.wordpress.com/2013/03/04/refurbished-svendborg-full-bent-apple/

I brought it to work with me today and will give it a smoke at lunch time. Thanks Rob for the gift.

Nice work as always Steve. I can see why you fell for it, that is something I would have picked up also.

Just smoked it while heading home from work. It is a cool and dry smoke. I smoked some McClellands Dark English in it and it delivered great flavour. It is a keeper.
