I finished another Comoy's this evening, this one a shape 409 Tradition. It only needed a mild clean-up. I think that I have the pictures straight on this one!

Full details:

I bought this with the intention of reselling it, but now, I don't have that shape and it looks pretty good, so....

That's a pipe anyone could enjoy smoking. I've never had a pipe that smoked better than an older Comoy's. Their bits are the most comfortable ones ever put on a pipe. IMHO. For me the old Comoy's sit at the pinnacle of all pipes made in a factory. Al you did fine job cleaning that beauty up. I'd bet after you smoke a few bowls through it that it won't be for sale. A great find and a job well done. Smile

Absolutely cracking classic pipe, and outstanding resto as usual, Al.

My congratulations on both accounts.

Can't believe I missed this thread!

Another great restoration Al, and one of my favorite shape to boot. I'll bet it smokes great and feels wonderful in the hand.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Do you know of a cheap place for a micro mesh set? I see them for around $25-30. From 1200 to 15,000.

I buy the 3" x 6" sheets from Amazon, unpadded. They are about $3/sheet but last forever.
The sets don't do me any good, I only use the 8,000 and 12,000 highest grades. I use 1000,1500 & 2000 wet autopaper before that, the crossover to the lower grades of micromesh is pretty close.

Good to know. Thanks. Makes smart sense.

I never seem to buy from the same place twice. You do need to figure in the shipping, which can sometimes be outrageous.
This place has individual sheets and some high end packs, of the 3" x 4" sheets (they come in a few similar sizes). I did not check the shipping.
