    I have a Savinelli pipe that has a smooth finish. Can this pipe be rusticated? Is there some type of process to do this? I just thought that someone may have experimented with this. Maybe some amateur pipe makers?

    Hello Perry! I am not a pipe expert, but I did rusticate a pipe recently. How To Restore Estate Pipes YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE

    It was easy to do, and there is many ways you can create a rustication. I guess it all depends on your preference, one thing That I would take into consideration is how thick the wood is on the pipe. If it is a thick bowl then there should not be a problem. But again I am no expert.

    Thanks for the response Matthew. That looks awesome. It is a "KS" Savinelli so there is plenty of wood to work with. I really like the look that you achieved. Any interest in hiring out? I am serious btw. Here is a pic of the pipe in question. Nothing wrong with it, just don't like the color. And I kinda prefer rusticated. I like the way it feels in the hand.

    That is a great looking pipe! Lol, no way my friend, I would be too afraid to mess up a fellow puffers Pipe! But, I can throw you some links and give a little advice. You can use pretty much anything to rusticate really, I used a modified Phillips screw driver. I have seen people use modified flat heads, bundles of nails, dremels...Pretty much anything that can gouge the wood out, but you also have rustication in the form of say, lines or patterns. And each object or method gives a certain rustic look. I just eyed where I wanted my lines to start and end, and went at it pushing into the wood and then twisting. When I thought I was taking too much wood off I eased up and continued with half twists and switched back and forth. When I got to the lines where the smooth wood met I twisted inward back towards the rusticated areas.

    Not much to it really. But here are some links that you might find interesting and helpful

    What about getting an other pipe that is rusticated, and leaving a nice pipe that you have alone?

    That's a mighty fine looking pipe! Maybe you should practice on a cheaper, less-attractive pipe?

    I wish I had a similar rusticated one to trade you......

    Screw it. I'll try to trade it. I would probably just ruin it anyway. It's in the trade section if anyone is interested.

    One thing about rusticating Perry, is there is no right and wrong. Even the mess up's can add to the rustication of the pipe . I went ahead and rusticated a straight pipe I had. I actually like the way this one turned out allot. I went a little hard on the shank, but it turned out nice. I still need to dye it and finish it with something..

    If you want to send it here with return postage, I'll glass bead blast the sh*t out of it in the cabinet blaster..
    No guarantees on what it will turn out like though... I've never blasted briar before
