Has anyone else noticed the lack of availability of any pre-molded churchwarden stems, especially in the last couple years?
I used to get one small size from Pimo, and could find anything else through a couple Italian sellers on Ebay. No such luck on any front anymore. Pipe Makers' Emporium has one size of molded warden stem - the same thing Pimo used to carry. They're alright, but only in one *small and brittle* size, and often have off-center holes.
Does anyone have a good source of molded vulcanite warden stems? Or will I just have to start custom turning like all the real pipemakers out there?
