    Oh that sucks big time. At least it is repairable. Get a new stem quick. Those Royal Danish Stanwells don't like to be ignored for very long. Hope your day improves. There's a saying something along the line of "eat a live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day". I think you just had your "live toad".

    Been there. So sorry to hear it happened to you. As Artistik said it is repairable and getting a new stem will keep you and that Stanwell happy. Hope the rest of the day is better.

    Sorry to hear it man, at least it was just the stem as others have echoed since it is repairable. Hopefully your day just gets better from here!

    Maybe you can even make an upgrade, for example the new one could be acrylic whereas the old one was vulcanite? If you prefer acrylic, that is. Anyways, think positive!

    Sorry for the breakage brother.... It's frustrating, no question.
    Pop it in the mail addressed to Dave Walker, all will be right as rain in no time.

    Yeah, try sending it to Dave. I recently had a good experience with Floyd Norwood, but another member had a not-so-nice experience with him. Go with Dave!

    I recently had two stems replaced. One by "the maker," and the other by Dave Walker. Guess who did a better job? (pssst, it was Dave)

    +1 or is it +2? on Dave at Walker Briar Works. I just got back three pipes of mine he worked on and they look great. Found three more I wasn't sure had made the trip I'm about to pack up to send. He not only does great work, he is very pleasant to deal with and responsive if you have a question.

    +1 on this. Get a nice swirled acrylic stem that brings out the color/grain of the briar!
