    I have a lot of broken pipes: cracked shank, broken stem....
    Throw them in the trash?
    No!!!.
    This is my solution :)




    Making a pipe is my hobby. My nickname means Black Sea. Very happy if you call me "Black Sea".

    Now that is possibly the most ingenious salvaging of broken pipes I've ever seen. Well done!

    I can't get behind bamboo, but I love the ingenuity!

    I'm guessing that bienden was Auto-corrected to Black Sea

    I thought it was in another language and that it translated to Black Sea. I just spent time with google translate, but couldn't come up with what language.

    Black Sea, could you inform us please?

    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.

    Great restorations and reclamations for sure. The pieces and parts of pipes have to be pretty well crushed and dismantled not to be useable, but it takes skill and time to bring the pieces back together. I do admire it.

    Bien Den is the my Facebook nickname, in Vietnamese. In English, Bien = Sea; Den = Black.
    And Black Sea is the name stamped on the pipe I did. You can call any name, but here I like you to call me Black Sea .

    Actually, I got the idea from Dunhill's Cavalier pipe.
    But I like to use bamboo, which is the material available in my country. And moreover, I want it to stand by itself. This takes a bit of effort and needs to be calculated to balance. I like doing such things.
    I am happy if you also like this solution.

    While not fan of bamboo and too conservative in shape preferences, I can still admire the ingenuity and workmanship.
