Thats what I call it, seein's how Natch sent it to me.
Its a very nice pipe, italian made i'm thinkin. it said "Aldo Bruyerre" on the shank.
Anyhow, its a nice smoker, and quite special to me , as it came from Natch, who has been such a nice and generous person, to me and obviously to others.
So, it is a keeper for sure. My family even knows it as "My Natch pipe".

Anyhow, i decided to refinish it.. all by hand might I add.

So far, its been through 320 grit, 600grit, 1200 grit, and then some micro fine chrom oxide sheets..(the last of which just seems like paper with no grit)

I got her shining good, then I gave it a once over with "red mahogany stain"

I dont have carnuba wax, so I use beeswax,,,and its had 4 buffs with that. (by hand) using a fleece cloth.
I plan on doing the beeswax rubs, till it holds its own.

Anyhow, Heres to you Natch ! and Thank you.

Really nice work Dusty. By the way, how much snow did you guys get out of that storm last week? We got around 30in. in about 30 hours at my place.
