    Dunhill sells a polishing cloth (or at least they used to) that achieves a similar effect. If I recall correctly, theirs is impregnated with silicone.

    A good point, and I know what you are saying. I use it to bring up the shine on pipes that have already been hand polished. Hey, I'm just a dedicated amateur.

    You're doing it right. I never re-polish a pipe unless something unfortunate happens to it, but I do occasionally bring up the shine by hand buffing or applying fresh wax.

    They still do, I'm very happy with mine and you do remember correctly, it's impregnated with silicone.
