Hello! I recently purchased an estate Demuth SnapKleen briar pipe, and even though I knew the stem and shank didn't meet flush I still liked the pipe and thought get it with an attempt to fix it myself. I've done a few pipe restorations but am new to the game and haven't encountered something like this. The tricky thing (as you can see in the picture) is that the connection points are metal. Is there a way I can fix this without having it sent out or special tools?
