Grabow Lives to See Another Day! Or Several Years...

I wrote somewhere back last month that I got taken by an eBayer who sold me a pipe with repairs that weren't disclosed in the description...the lip chipped out with the first pipe cleaner run thru it. Well, I sent it back to International Pipe and they did a spectacular job of stem replacement with fast turn around time...my hats off to them...old school professionalism for a fair price!

How much of the stem did International Pipe actually replace? Just wondering if they recreated the whole stem and Dr G spade or simply repaired the original stem. It looks great regardless of how they did it!

It's nice when you have a fast turn around, I on the other hand have been waiting 5 months and counting for a replacement stem on one of my Dunhills. I shall not name names but it's ridiculous.

Wow that's insane. I'd be more than a little upset

No repairs, they replaced the complete stem and polished the pipe!

Is the stem ebonite or abs?
