    Beautiful, Dave, just beautiful.

    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.

    Now that is a lovely pipe. I missed it when you first posted. I hope you wouldn't be offended if I use that for inspiration one of these days when I feel building something Zulu?

    The stem looked to be the same sickly colour as the one on my recent old estate pipe purchase. May I ask how you brought it back to life? The usual stuff? Oxi soak, sanding, sanding and then more sanding?

    Jason, a DILUTE solution of bleach and water(maybe 15~25%? I just eyeball it). From the solution it goes into water to "stop" the bleach There are issues using bleach, and some people are very much against it; it will roughen the surface of the stem. Careful wet sanding with 600 paper will take care of this, as will 0000 steel wool. A tip from Anthony (Piffyr) that I now also do (at his insistence! ), is polish the airway of the stem with Barkeeper's friend and a wet pipe cleaner. Hand polished on the pipe with micro mesh, which when done properly will also bring up the finish of the stummel itself to a high shine.

    That's the short answer...

    Melamine foam pads are also a very useful tool to remove oxidation. You can find them in the grocery in the Kitchen cleaning dept.

    You can skip the OxiClean. It doesn't do anything except hyperoxidize the stem (and possible destroy the logo/stamping). Cut some melamine foam (generic Magic Eraser) into 1" cubes and go at it until the stem is completely black. The surface will be matte after that. So, you'll have to polish in some manner if you want a shine.

    Why is everybody looking at me?

    I'd advise against that. The metal threads can break and embed in the stem. At best, you'd have a tiny, shiny dot on the surface, at worst, a tiny, shiny barb.
