    The Exmoor Pipe shape 229

    The pipe that started the recent Bulldog thread. The Exmoor Pipe, an old, pre-war Comoy's made pipe, shape 229. Note the "rugby ball" COM mark. It cleaned up very well, if I do say so myself!

    Wonderful old pipe and an equally wonderful job on the restoration, Dave!

    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.

    The QC Supervisor wanted the bowl rings cleaner, "Now, go floss those bowl rings!" . I don't have the flossing jig, so I brushed them with a toothbrush...hopefully that will pass any further inspection. But right now, I'm going to give it another smoke!

    Don't feel bad, Dave. I've been called out for the same thing in the past. Won't happen again.

    Nicely done Dave, a dog with class!
    Wonder if it was anything to do with exmoor hunt pipe tobacco? I've seen a barling made pipe 'the Bruno' before now, the box sporting the tin graphics of st. Bruno of old.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Of course it will... with flying "collars".
    You did a great job on it.

    Useful on the rings when ya wanna be really anal is Mitchells abrasive cord. Available down to .020 inch diameter. Also good for cleaning up and smoothing stem slots.
