I finished another Comoy's this evening, this one a shape 409 Tradition. It only needed a mild clean-up. I think that I have the pictures straight on this one!

I bought this with the intention of reselling it, but now, I don't have that shape and it looks pretty good, so....

Great work. Glad you get to keep this one all to yourself.

Very nice. I restored a Comoys 409 this summer, such a gorgeous shape. I found it challenging to keep the edges of the stem looking flat where they meet the shank. Seems like this is a bigger deal on the square shank versus other stems I have done that are round. Got any tips?

Vegas Baby!!!
FWIW, it smokes really well. I was lucky enough to grab it when Al put it up for sale to chase a White Whale. I, Ahab, land a fantastic pipe.

I don't mean to thread jack but I thought it would be interesting to compare the before and after on my 409. It is a really good smoker.
