It is your pipe and you are certainly free to do with it as you wish. Having said that, I don't understand why you did this.

Stanwell, and the consumer, paid extra money for a pipe that replicates a S. Bang. Their shape, their two color finish, their characteristic black stem, etc, are what made this a Stanwell S Bang. When you change those you destroy the entire idea behind the pipe... and decrease the perceived value.

Sid, happy to see you could give this a facelift in view of its accident, whatever that was. And what a superb job it turned out to be! You clearly have a fine touch there amigo. Love the contrast of the stem finish against the stain for the strummel. And the band really sets it all off. Bravo!

cheers



Cheers,

RR

For a factory cut pipe that's a great shape. I have the Stanwell S Bang bent Rhodesian and it too is an excellent pipe. I believe they made 3 or 4 shapes with that S Bang plate on the pipe. Seems these days the great shapes are rather dumbed down with softened lines, I assume for ease of reproduction. Nice to see some of the great designs survive mass production.

It is a pity you broke it, but at least you salvaged it. Probably smokes just fine.

I personally really like the colour scheme. My favorite colour is cabernet. The curves are also pleasing to the eye. I like to think stepping away from some traditions are healthy, and, well, interesting. Interesting is good!

Sure Ozzie, if you aren't paying for those 'traditions' in the first place.
And contrary to Richards unjust accusation I asked a legitimate question.
I'm not even saying that the end result doesn't look nice, it does. But to me its like wrecking a Camero SS, painting it Plum Crazy and putting a SRT Hellcat badge on it.

Sorry, PB--I thought wiseassery was allowed. Great analogy of yours if the pipe was "virgin," but the make-over was necessitated by damage, apparently. Not too apparent, however: I see no damage in either the video or blog entry. Wish I had retained all the pipes of mine that met with an "accident." Snapped tenon city, man.

Oh, it was broke.. That's why he did it.. Derp, what was I thinking.

Or.

I understood it was broken, he stated that from the get go. I thought I was clear but apparently not. That's why I reiterated what I was saying with the analogy about a WRECKED CAR. I'm asking why he did not restore it to what it was or at least some semblance of what it was.


Pick whichever makes you more comfortable. I'm going back to the special needs home. At least they understand me there.

Where did I give a negative comment?   I'm pretty sure if you scroll back up and read the sentence prior to the one you quoted you will see what I said about the pipe itself.

I asked why you didn't restore it to what it was, because I don't understand paying for the S Bang style and then changing it.  You still haven't answered that.

If you interpret someone asking a question instead of just mindlessly singing your praise, I suppose it's best if I just cease attempting to communicate with you.

Although was in my first sentence here is the answer for second time: I said it clearly, "due to an accident".. If you have checked my collection you could see some S.Bang pipes with only tine changes.

English isn't my mother language, i learn them by books, i am self taught.I am a hobbyist, i don't have any professional equipment and i work standing upright in a small balcony so don't judge me as a pro pipe maker.

I understand it was an accident. I've said that 4 times.. I was originally just curious Why you chose to go the route you did instead of restoring it to its original design. I don't even care anymore, It's clear you can't comprehend what I'm asking and you keep wanting to accuse me of negativity and being judgmental.





Allby, that's a real good way to get your account deleted. lol! lol! lol! lol!

Due to an accident the pipe couldn't be smooth as in original condition.

So i am asking you again: If i was posting the above pipe, [forget the burned rim] what you would say about the sandblast work?
