My pipe friend, Steve Laug has a wonderful blog called "Reborn Pipes". While he typically writes about estates pipe restorations, an occasional "Father Tom" story makes its way to the blog. Steve just posted this short tale, a peek into a morning at an old pipe shop and it is too good not to share! This might be my all-time favorite Steve Laug story. I love his choice of estate pipes and the one being restemmed. Well done Mr. Laug!

Ah, the sound of the jingling doorbell as you enter a shop, what ever happened to such nuances in shops, they're all so horrible sterile and formal these days, it's all 'give us your money then get out' in shops today, horrible experiences all.

Steve is a wonderful gentleman and a fine pipe restorer, whilst I wouldn't presume to be in the same league as Steve, he has guided me on many occasions with my own efforts, he always has time to help you out where he can, a very rare breed these days. His energy and passion for pipes and tobacco is both engaging and intriguing, anything Steve doesn't know when you ask he shoots off and finds out, ever hungry to learn new things and never shy to share what he learns, he's a fine gentleman and a genuine soul.
