    This is a shape I’ve never seen in my many years of hunting LHS. I was pleasantly surprised to find some decent grain under all that dark stain and grunge. The rim was charred and beat up. That was all the excuse I needed to add a slight bevel.

    1926 patent era LHS Purex shape #84.

    Make aromatics great again.

    Quite a transformation! And one really bizarre cutty.

    Wow, another one!

    Are those marks on the left side of the bowl (3rd photo down) indentations? Perhaps it was gripped by a vise or pliers? In any event, sanding a bunch?

    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 job on that. Beautiful grain is right.

    Thanks everyone. It’s a keeper for sure. Feather light too.

    @jpm,

    Yes those are dents. Looks like the shank was used to knock out the ashes quite a few times. I managed to remove most of it. Some were very close to the stampings so I left good enough alone.

    @brian
    Now I’ve seen 2. Very cool!

    Once again a beautiful restoration but you're starting to make these transformations look like the norm. Love that shape as well

    I never tire of seeing these miracle transformations of chewed-up stems. Someone enjoyed that pipe for a long time, and now will again. That canted bowl would worry me, but obviously it's a smoker, and just fine thank you, with gorgeous grain.

    What a great job!

    Man is but a pipe—and his life but smoke.
