I got this old Wellington at an antique store a while back and it just sits there. It's not my favorite shape but I cleaned it good and used it a few times. Well now that i have the pads, the tripolii, white diamond, and the carnuba, I thought I'd clean this old pipe up. The stem came out great, but I overdid it on the metal ring on the shank, as you can see. There is also a faded line in the stain that I don't think I created but must have been there hidden under the grime. I'll probably uses the pipe some, but I'm glad I didn't make this mistake on a nicer pipe. Easy on the tripolli!
