I snagged this pipe recently. It's on the way from the UK. Looks to me like a contemporary to a lot of the Boer War pipes seen on eBay. Seems like it's in nice shape, should be fun to work on.

This turned out to be a lightly used pipe that cleaned up well. It looks like a near cousin to the popular Boer War pipes. I feel like I want to fill it with OJK and have a go!

Check it out:

That's a whopper! Are you thinking of a little more bend in the stem or just leaving it as is?

I think it's fine as is.

Different bends for different friends! :)

That's right! :lol: the partial bend is perfect for the way I smoke a pipe. Second, I don't like to heat old rubber. Sometimes it works okay, sometimes you create a new problem.

Ease of codger scooping is a plus with pots.

I bet you could codger scoop that thing in a PA tub, no problem.
