    Hi All!

    A friend sent me this old CPF pipe. It's not in bad shape but doesn't have a stem. I was thinking about refurbishing it.

    Any suggestions on what to use or where to possibly find a replacement stem?

    Those were amber stems, or at least the ones I’ve seen. Perhaps a amber coloured acrylic?

    Send it to Ric at Briarville. He handles most of my repairs. Excellent service.

    Unless you do hand crafted stems, I'd take ash's advice and send it to a pro, maybe after you fix up the stummel to inspire the person who makes the stem. I had an old pipe with an excellent briar fitted with a new stem, and it is such an improvement, a whole new pipe.

    A bit off topic, but is there any way to get a replacement genuine amber stem?
