Full Pipe Restoration

Full Pipe Restoration is normally done on fine Collector pipes or old favorites that need a new life.  “Full Pipe Restoration” means making a pipe like brand new, including the need to break the pipe in as was needed when it was brand new.

I take great pride in my restorations. There are no photos posted here as none are needed.  Just visualizing your Collector pipe or “Old Pal” as it would have looked brand new.

Full Pipe Restoration Includes:
 

  • Restoring Stem - Remove ALL tooth Marks, reform button
       or replace Stem if necessary and authorized
  • Open the Airway to 5/32” where pipe size allows
  • Refinish Rim - Remove all charring, rerusticate (if appropriate)
