    Can a small hole at the bottom of a briar bowl be repaired with 'pipe mud - or is the bowl essentially kaput?

    I would say its fixable, but it will never be properly strong and I wouldn't have confidence in it.
    Better just to except its fate, mate.

    I personally would never smoke a pipe with a hole in it, but that is me.

    So where do you put the tobacco?

    You can send it out and have a briar plug installed. I once repaired a rusticated pipe with a hole in the bottom of the bowl using epoxy and pipe mud.

    Neither would I, but the pipe in question is a rare vintage for an incredibly cheap price, and it would be a shame to pass it up if it could be home-repaired.

    Wouldn't the burning tobacco cause the epoxy to release noxious fumes?

    I, for one, get attached to my pipes. If you like the pipe, I'd send it out and get it repaired.
