    No problem, Peter. When you heat that stem to try to straighten it, make sure that you take it out of the pipe before doing so. Don't try to force it one way or another. Just let it return to what it wants to be. The bend at the end will straighten out. So, before you begin, lay the stem on a piece of paper and run a pen along the curve of the bend to trace the contour onto the paper. That will give you a proper reference for when you have to rebend the stem.

    My apologies if any of this is old hat to you. Just trying to cover the bases and reduce potential problems.

    It's been a while for me. I got this one back into useable condition. Unfortunately, I had to sand off the crowned "S" on the stem because the oxidation was so deep. I only did stem work on this old thing. This pipe practically smokes itself. I love it.

I'm going to spend some time with this one to study the problem and correct it proper. A mortise manipulation or heat gun might be in order here. We'll see. The shape is interesting. Grain is nice too. I'm wondering if this is the same pipe I found a year ago and left behind. Or if this shape has some kind of flaw in it in which clinching it over time makes the stem move. I'm over thinking it already. Anyhow, thanx gents! I'll get back on this one.
    Stanwell pipe shapes says it was made with a special stem.

    Same here, too.

    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.
