    Olive oil can spoil. Also, its tastes and smells like olive oil. I don't want my pipe smelling like Panara bread. The reason people use it is because its more common and cheap. But for $.25 more, you can get mineral oil. Which doesn't spoil, is tasteless, clear, and doesn't smell like olive oil! Not dissing on anyone that uses olive oil, I just think mineral oil does a more professional job.

    I've got a question on a "light" restoration job. I picked up a Stanwell estate on ebay, it's in pretty good shape. It doesn't have any major scratches or dings, it just needs to be "brightened" up a little bit. Would a quick polish with White Diamond and a coat of wax do the trick? My concern is that the buffing might strip too much of the existing finish off. It's already a nice looking old pipe, I just to bring the shine back.

    That would work perfectly! I have nothing to add or subtract. Its exactly what I'd do to brighten up a pipe.

    If you want my take on it, I would second this... I did this on a couple of my pipes that were a little lackluster and now they really shine.

    I've got a project I've been toying with, and was wondering if you have any advice on giving an old pipe the "Dunhill Dress Black" finish?

    That is just a solid shiny black finish, right?

    Yes, like gloss black, except you can sort of see the grain shining through too...

    What about removing the old finish (stain and wax) and restaining with some black leather stain. stain and wipe down, repeat until you get the desired level of black to grain showing through that you want. Then buff and wax. The only thing is I donít know if the black stain would completely cover the grain. I know some pipes that look black are actually dark purple, especially the sandblasted ones.

    Well, that certainly sounds easy enough. It's probably in here somewhere already, so I apologize, but what black leather stain do you recommend?

    Never used it myself, but I think Kyle recommends Fiebing's.

    Here: Amazon.com: Tandy Leather Fiebings U.S.M.C. Black Leather Dye 2100-01: Arts, Crafts & Sewing

    Speak up Kyle if I have something wrong here.
