This one took some doing - it had suffered from a previous owner's "a pipe is a hammer" philosophy. The rim was beaten out of shape, the finish was a mess and the stem had tooth dents for days. It cleaned up pretty well, though the stem never fully recovered from the bite marks.

Here's a pic showing before & after. Left column is as found, right column is after refurbishment.  Full write-up and a ton more pics on my blog at DadsPipes.



Thanks for looking.

You put in a ton of work on that one, and it shows!

Cool


Cheers,

Thanks RR. I likd the slim shape of these old Medico pipes - something mid-century elegant about them to my mind. I really wish though that the nylon stem had never been invented. Rubbish to work with when trying to restore. :-)

Super impressive. Good job. I also like about this pipe what you explained and thought that was well said.
