We used to say in the South that you don't thump a free melon. It has been very good. Next up is the Condor.

I might be ruining this...the shiny stuff is coming off in patches. Eeeek! I'm no craftsman. Guess I'll put on another coat of Murphy's and let'er sit a while.
Really baffled by this. I've never had Murphy's strip a finish and I've used it on at least 30 pipes. I usually put it on an old tooth brush and give pipes a scrubbin' too. I will occasionally even put a dab on the corner of a wet paper towel to clean off rim darkening. Having it strip off varnish is crazy.
You really have to get in to it heavy, no dabbing on wet corners. Lol
Are you applying it with a 220 grit sponge? Maybe a wire brush? I scrub the crap out of estate pipe bowls with a toothbrush slathered in it, and never had it lift a finish.

I can't wait to get crackin' on my Kapruf when I get home. If it turns out nice I might just go ahead and do all the grimy ones I have.

Yes, you have to keep applying until it's off. The same thing happened with the 98b I just did. Do a few more coats wiping it off in between and let it dry overnight then do it again. Once you put the feed n wax on it looks great.
I'm doing two more.

Okie dokie...I'll keep at'er. :D

Just a tooth brush. I scrub in a circular motion until the foam starts to turn brown and a few more passes then let it sit for 15 mins, wipe and start again.

It doesn't strip the stain down to bare briar if that's what you mean?

No, I mean usually there is some residual wax left on waxed pipes, and if it's lacquered that remains as well. Murphy's Oil Soap is made to be used on furniture / hardwood floors which often times are coated with lacquer or shellac with a protective wax on top, so it shouldn't be messing with that aspect of a finish. It's really just fancy good smelling castile soap.
