Last year I bought a Nording Freehand "Virgin". I really like that Pipe and I find it to be a great Pipe for the Price. Unfortunately, the Stem broke on a Pack trip I was guiding. I usually put my Pipes in a Pelican case when I'm out guiding, but the one time I forgot to place my Pipe in the pelican case, was the one time my Pack horse decided to "roll" in the mud lol. Anyways, to get back to the Topic at hand, does anyone know a place that makes Pipe stems? Any tips would be greatly appreciated

If you correspond with the Dr. Grabow factory, I believe they replace stems for all types of pipes, not just Grabow... Last I remember, anyway.

I've never personally used them, but I hear Walker Briar Works can fab up just about anything you want stem-wise.

I am not entirely sure why automatic links aren't working, and when I put the [url][/url] tags around a link, it does nothing but show the BB code.. :?:

If you can fit the tenon, bend, and finish it yourself you can buy a prefab stem from a place like rawkrafted or Vermont Freehand. Since you said it's a freehand I assume it has a fancy "table leg" stem with some extra bulbs and bends
Not the brightest bulb in the fixture ;)

I wonder if Nording might send you a new stem?
