    Trying to Make My First Pipe

    My wife got me a "man crate" that is a pipe making kit. It has a block of briar and hand tools (saw, files, etc..) pretty cool set. However, I'm not about to try to use their saw to shape a pipe.....I do have a dremel 4000 and think that would be my best tool over the hand tools. My question...

    Props for

    I've bought 2 pipes over the past couple of months from Jamie at Stem and Briar. He does an excellent job and has great service. I bought a Castello Sea Rock bent egg, and a Savinelli Madera 602. He has pipes for all budgets and is highly recommended!

    Help: Is There A possible Restoration To This

    My main thought is no. But, it was the first pipe I bought 15 years ago, so I wanted to give her a shot before I deemed her dead, so I thought I would ask the experts..... (Hopefully the picture below will post, if not it's in my album)

    Help With recent Sasieni Estate Purchase

    Hey guys, when back home over Thanksgiving I picked up a great little sasieni pipe at the Briary. Short pipe, huge bowl, and a hell of a smoker. I don't know much about sasieni so I thought I'd ask the experts. It's a 4 dot walmut and Mark in order as followed: sasi€ni, four dot walnut, London...
