    I have a Padron 1926 No. 6 (natural) and there is a fat stem at the top right part of the shoulder, so I have just been aging it for about a month now because I am worried about ruining the construction with my cutter..... I am waiting to get a good punch cutter to smoke (this summer)...... BUT...

    I went to pick up the mail at the post office today. My Villar Y Villar cigars from JR came and there was a padded envelope in my box. I took my trusty Air Force Swiss Army knife out and opened the package and the next thing I knew I was up against the wall of boxes behind me and minus a few...

    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...

    I've been pulling out little stems in smokes here and there lately. Not sure if it's a coincidence or that I'm paying more attention to whats in the head of the cigar more.... Yesterday as I was smoking a Dark Knight I noticed the end of a stem, so I started to tug and pull. Once it started to...

    So I inherited my Grandfather's 1950's(?) Brewster pipe. I have been smoking it for a couple of months. Just yesterday, as I was cleaning it, the entire end of the stem broke apart! Does anyone know where I could possibly find a replacement stem? Or should I just forget about it and buy a new one?

    i recently obtained a savinelli black set pipe from the bay that has some scratches on the mouthpiece. i know some people don't care about this, but i do. it's just too nice of a pipe to have a crappy looking mouthpiece. i seen a topic on here that one of you guys may have a good hand at...

    Is there an easy way to determine if my stems are vulcanite or lucite? I mean, some of the colorful lucite ones are obvious, but most of my pipes have black stems. I know at least one of them is vulcanite, as it was in the description when I purchased it. To be clear, I don't care if I have...

    I have an estate pipe with a stuck stem, any suggestions for removal? I tried the freezing method, it didn't budge. I'm also looking for places that sell replacement bits, it has a very long bit and I can't seem to find anything online. Thanks! Mark

    I have a porcelain pipe that has came into my possession recently. The stem had a quark ring around the part that connects into the shank. Well one side was broken off and the stem was loose so I just broke the rest of the brittle quark off. Now I need to find a way to set the stem to the shank...

    Someone on youTube said it was very corrosive. I soaked one stem in pure bleach for 30 mins, took it out, rinsed it, and it fit back in the pipe tightly. So now I have all 3 of my estate pipe stems (which arrived today) sitting in bleach. The reaction between the brown stuff on the stem and...

    So, I’ve managed to acquire several pipes over the last few weeks and I’ve begun breaking them in. I never realized how little differences in design really seem to change what I have to do to clean them. I’ve found the Kaywoodie has a tendency to get a bit wet while smoking, but it’s a...

    Hello! I'm new here and I just have a quick question. I just purchased my first Boswell pipe and it is absolutely beautiful. However, the stem fits kind of weird. Figure the part of the stem that goes into the shank of the pipe is about 3/4" long. For the first 1/2" it's loose as can be, as in...

    So yesterday, on somewhat of a whim after an annoying workday, I swung by a local B&M and picked up a new lighter - and ended up leaving with a new pipe as well :) Naturally, I was pretty eager to try it, so having inspected it at home, I was ready to pack with Irish Flake and get down to...

    I was recently gifted a very nice small estate bent billiard. The Briar is in excellent condition, with only one noticeable flaw. The stem on the other hand is very oxidized. I've been rubbing it down with olive oil for the last couple of days, and this has helped it's appearance, but it is...

    I recently acquired a Kaywoodie 500 pipe from an eBay auction and there is a problem with the stem. It's a screw-in stem. When I screw it in all the way, it does not sit straight. The mouthpiece is not perfectly horizontal and is off by about 30 or so degrees. Is there a fix to this problem...

    So I just got one of my pipes from Ebay which seemed like a nice pipe. It had not been cleaned or sanitized but seemed to be smoked maybe once. The stem was super tight and I tried to be careful but the pipe is old. The stem snapped off at the tenon (plastic no metal) Does anyone know where...

    Where can you get a replacement stem for a freehand?

    I bought a cleaned up Wally Frank pipe from a guy on ebay a couple months ago and he did a pretty decent job cleaning the pipe, but the stem has a very strong soap taste to it (no I'm not smoking any Lakeland) it tastes like it was soaked in Murphy's Oil Soap, and never rinsed off. I've cleaned...
