    Briar Workshop

    I bought this pipe in May '16, and finally "finished" cleaning it up in Oct '16, but I wasn't really happy with how the stem came out. So, yesterday I put a little more bend in the stem, and finished re-polishing it this morning. Much happier with the way the stem looks now! The pictures are May '16, Oct '16, and today.

    Well done! It's amazing how much difference a little more bend (or less) can affect how a pipe looks.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Beautiful pipe, Dave! You're right, a little more bend in the stem was just what the doctor ordered.
