    Yes, two coats of Carnuba, followed by a coat of some Halcyon Pipe Wax I bought on e-bay. I have no idea what the Halcyon is (probably mineral oil or something), but it really restores the shine (or adds it in this case).

    I'll probably let it sit and add another coat tomorrow.

    I had to go out to the garage and look. It's Minwax Color Express Wiping Stain. It came in a tube and is fairly thick stuff, much more like paint than stain.

    You probably need to let me smoke a few bowls out of this one first to make sure it doesn't bubble off or something...

    Heres were my issue is.


    Winning the dang bids!

    In getting into pipe and lighter restoration. Im gettig goid deals on lighters, gotton a few colibri and others for $5 a pice or less.

    But cant seem to win any pipe auctions. They keep going about what i feel is a reasonable offer.

    For example, ine was 8 pipes i think. No big names. Either unmarked, or yello-bole. Or dr grabbow.

    Sold for $50+ before shipping!

    Am i underestimating value here?

    And im hoping to get a peterson p-lip or a charatan along the way, ub a lot. But they jusy make the bid impossible. Lol.

    Also, im not a big fan of straight pipes. It seems that theres 1 bent to every 10 straight. Argh!

    Any advise from anyone on this?

    I'd say, just keep trying. I won this killarney p-lip almost brand new with box for $23 before shipping.



    Just gotta bid on a lot of stuff. Eventually you'll get a deal!

    I'm smoking it now. Half way through the bowl and it's smoking like a champ! No issues whatsoever. I even overfilled and had some ashes come near the top from expansion during the initial light, and there's no sign of charring on the lip. This is my new favorite pipe...

    Breaking it in with some H&H Louisiana Red!

    I have a billiard with some VERY obvious fills. It smokes okay, I might do this just for the sake of looks. Then I have a sharp dress billiard for those special occasions!

    Wow - whatever you paid that sure was worth it.

    Truly a nice looking pipe, though I thought from the 'before' shots that rim had been burned clear through.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
