    Look up Stem and Briar on the net, they offer a pipe rejuvenation service for $10, I sent 4 Ebay pipes to James Connely a wile back and a month later returned pipes were unrecognizable, and good smokers.

    So for all on a budget I recommend, and will use Stem and Biar again. He also provides more detailed services.

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Amazing bargain. This guy must work pro bono mostly, for love of pipes. I'm impressed. Hope your post doesn't swamp him.

    Surely this is the price just to do a basic buff and shine?

    Make aromatics great again.

    That is a bargain!

    For ten bucks I can't even get my stem rubbed.

    You could find yourself in this situation:

    "An attempt to remove bite marks will be made. If the stem if to far damaged, replacement may be advised."

    The pipe is an instrument of civilization.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    I started this thread awhile back but with the number of recent posts on the subject of refinishing and restoring pipes I thought I would revive it.

    As stated before, I have no association with this company other than being a happy customer and would like the new member know there are value options out there.

    At such a low price it's worth using his services even just for yearly maintenance.

    If you're happy with his work, then I'd suggest throwing a few extra bucks his way in appreciation. After looking through the list of what you get for $10, I'd say that he could get better wages at the local McDonald's and his work is largely an act of philanthropy. Reward him if you can.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!

    I recently received a batch of pipes sent for cleaning and was sadly informed that the prices will go up slightly to cover the cost of materials but bulk pricing will still be available, price is still listen on the website so I don't know when this will take effect.

    Still an excellent value and service

    This is 4 to 6 times lesser price and yes they are going to get swamped with pipes soon.

    Cheers,

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    Just got my Ehrlich back from Jamie with a new stem. Great work for me on a pipe I love that needed some care.
    Will certainly use him again. Fast and easy to work with. Even over the holidays.

    Sounds like just the situation georged was talking about the other day where pipe post-market repair people are disappearing because of too-low set prices for consumer work! I'd definitely throw some extra money the way of anyone willing to do such work for so little.

    I guess I've gotten used to doing this kind of work on my own pipes myself, but I checked out the website. Damn! At those prices, their services are very tempting.
