I'm trying to expand my pipe shape selection from my standard choice, a Rhodisian. A couple of months ago I was crusing the "bay" and saw this no-name Canadian that had frankly seen better days. There was something about it that told me to gamble, so I paid $19.00 on a hunch.

When it arrived it was a tired pipe that had potential. Originally I was just going to send it to Mike at Walker Pipe Repair for a new stem, but then I was feeling lazy, and decided to have it cleaned, reamed, polished, and given an ozone treatment along with the new black/red lucite stem (resembles a Cumberland). Mike made this pipe into a treasure that I'm really proud of. Thanks Mike!

Sweet Canadian! One of my favorite shapes.

I sent a pipe to Mike earlier this year and he does fantastic restoration work.

Congrats.

Very nice restoration. Mike does fantastic work, doesn't he?

I sent him a Ser Jacopo pipe with a broken stem and he fixed it such that you couldn't even see where the break was. Plus he made me a new stem in the exact same design, all for a pittance.

Happy camper here!

 Cool 



Cheers,

RR
