While not a fan of the billiard shape, I couldn't resist this New Era grade GBD. The sellers photos shows this one also had the "Hand Cut" stem stamp. This is the 3rd GBD in my collection with that stamp.

I detailed the restoration here:

"Hand Cut" stamp, just visible

The plan was to clean it up and resell it, but the stem looks so inviting, I'm considering keeping this one. (and it weighs only 30 grams)

Another fantastic restoration job Al! Those old GBD's are a great value for the money, especially when they can be restored to this level.

Well, thanks, I think - but that is Steve Laug's blog, I just do guest articles.

Well I guess that means I have multiple pipe restoration article writers man crushes.

I watch reborn pipes and dads pipes right now. Most of y'all are pretty good writers and are very fun to read.
