Picked up an old Kaywoodie from ebay. $10 plus $5 shipping.

Used oxyclean and micro-mesh on the stem. Soaked the stummel in 91% alcohol and hand sanded it. Thought I'd restain it but the original stain was pretty deep and the stampings were shallow so I didn't want to sand them out. Just cleaned it up good and sanded its smooth and finished with Paragon.

Great job on the restoration and with an intact stinger too boot, that's a hell of a score for $15! Hope she provided you many hours of great smokes.

Well thanks, MAW!

Been working on a couple others, too. Keeping it to cheap older pipes for now.
