    It was my favorite pipe before I came here to Psf, and pre PAD
    Went missing for a while after moving things around.
    Now I am considering either sending it off at some later date, or stripping it down and refinishing it somehow.
    It is my La Reserva # 272, no idea on this shape or who made it, it was a gift from a friend.

    Used and abused is how it should be


    That sounds so very wrong

    I suggest getting rid of the recliner before it does it again!

    Very handsome pipe. Probably glad to have it back. I certainly would be. Congrats.

    That's definitely worth sending out for a restore. Good looking pipe.

    Yes it was...
    Think I only tore the house apart 4-5 times.

    That would be a good candidate for a rustification job.

    Only the finish is bad, the briar is barely, if even damaged at all, just horrible pics, and I've been smoking it since I found it again.

    Any ideas on that bend or bowl shape? Or who made it?
    It sits on its own on that tapered base.

    Nice find. I really like that pipe. I would just restore it to it's original glory. That transition piece on the shank is really nice looking and fits the pipe.

    Good find!

    That looks like a terrible pipe. Now that your PAD has given you so many better smoking options you need to get rid of that old worn out thing. PM me for my address -- I'll gladly help a fellow PSFer get rid of that old piece of junk.

    It does have some nice grain, if that idiot with the camera would hold still
