As many of you may know from my earlier post, I recently bought a Dr. Grabow Starfire from an antique store. This was my first attempt at a refurb. I would like to thank Pipenovelist for his article on stem cleaning! Really helped out a lot!

Thanks for looking! I really dont think these pictures do it justice! This turned out to be an extremely nice looking pipe. Cant wait to smoke it!

great looking pipe. Restoration is pretty addicting. If you haven't done it yet you should give the bowl a salt and alcohol treatment to get all the tar and possible mold out.
