First off is it ethical to touch up the script on a pipe? I have some old pipes that are in pretty good shape that I plan to clean and gently refurbish but some have already been over polished or have shallow markings here and there. If it is ethical to try and deepen these original marks how can it be done on briar and stems, vulcanite and acrylic? In the past I have deepened a few scripts on metal work on guns by making small punches with the right nose profile and gently peened the shallow areas with modest to excellent results.
