    That Pete will clean up nicely, I'm sure. My suggestion, take your time with it.

    I have a pretty abused Peterson Rhodesian that I've been working on for about 6 months on and off. I get to looking at it and get stumped as to how to bring him back to life. Other times, I get an idea of something to try. He's being stubborn, but I'm sure I'll convince that pipe to let me care for him.

    Southerners don't talk slow because they're dumb, we do it because there's really no rush.

    Nice long term project there. I have salvaged a few pipes that really looked like dustbin material.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    I may be mistaken (have been a couple times before) but that pipe looks like a meershaum. If it is, it will take a completely different method of restoration.

    I'll watch for the pictures as you progress.
