Repairs & Restoration Work
Just got back two of my favorite pipes completely repaired and ready to smoke from Walker Briar Works. Dave Wolff and Mike Myers came through again with no impairment in quality or craftsmanship regardless of the changes made at their businesses. We still have a wonderful resource for our sick pipes. I am VERY pleased.
I have some friends. Some honest friends, and honest friends are few;
My pipe of briar, my open fire, A book that's not too new......
Great to hear this. Thanks for sharing!
For whereas men of an older school, like myself, smoke for the pleasure of smoking...
This is a small calabash that had a broken amber stem. Now it is replaced with a sythetic stem:
And this Meershaum Cavalier had the same problem. Again, an original amber stem, replaced with a synthetic one. In both cases the pipes were fitted with new screw type tenons as well.
Very nice work!

I have two pipes with Mike having some restoration done. I'm glad to hear all went well with your repairs. I did feel that they would be in good hands, but this is reassuring. Nice stems on your meers, they look great.
