There are a lot of refurb guys out there. Briarville is just one of them. Reborn pipes is very very good. Remember that a pipe repair guy is different from a pipe refurbisher. A few guys are truly both.
I have been sending pipes I get on eBay to Steve at reborn pipes. Highly recommended. Great guy who does a great job. If I see something doubtful on eBay I always consult with him, and he had given me excellent advices.
