This was sort of an errant ebay purchase. I was a few drinks deep, placed a bid and won. I've done a chamber ream and a salt & alcohol ghost chaser but that's as far as I've gone. No logo on the stem but has some numbers stamped on one side. Could be a replacement? Still a double comfort if it is. There's some tooth marks on the stem, and it hasn't been cleaned or sanded by me. Overall length is 5 5/8 chamber size is 0.85 x 1.7 $55 shipped in the US

This looks like a great pipe. Someone will be happy with that one.

not a replacement stem, the numbers always survive the CP on the other side. Mike Meyer can do a perfect CP stamp btw, I had him put one on one of mine and it is indistinguishable from factory.

Interesting tidbit, thank you. The tooth marks are pretty deep so I may go that route if it ends up staying here

After a little thought (and noticing that there's a crack in one of my other large chambered pipes so this may take its place) I think I'll hold on to this one a while longer. Could this thread get closed please?

I think you will be happy with the decision to keep it.

You want the entire thread deleted?
