I finished this 1940's era, pre-Transition Barlings Guinea Grain, for a member of another pipe forum. Jesse Silver, an authority on Barling's pipes was a big help dating the pipe. This was my first Barling's restoration and I enjoyed as much learning about the brand as I did doing the work. I include more details about the restoration process on Steve Laug's "Reborn Pipes" blog.

Very nice Al, if you wanted to get shot of those 'dings' on the stummel you can use a wet towel and an iron to drawn them out, I'm pretty sure Steve has an article on it over at rebornpipes somewhere.

I've already did that, I spend a good hour steaming all of those dents. Too many and too small to pull them out. I use an old kitchen knife, wet rag and a propane torch.

Nicely done, Al. Lovely clean up on that Barling. I get self conscious about cleaning up a pipe and leaving a little ring of oxidation where the stem meets the shank, but I always feel that I'd rather it be a little green, than sanded out of round.

What do the rest of you guys think about that?
