    Received these two this week. A really nice Peterson 314 and a Royal Danish 909. Both cleaned up very well. The bowl on the Danish is big and the rustication is exceptional. The Pete had plenty of cake but looks hardly smoked - Now it's been decaked and sparkles it looks almost new. There is something nice about taking a pipe that has done with it's last keeper and becoming the next one.

    Both are gorgeous, Burner. Although I have to admit that Pete is my favorite of the two. The 314 is a nice shape.

    Yep you have two nice pipes there. I agree, i love taking beat up old soldiers and turning them back into great smokers again. I bet I have retored over a thousand of them.

    Hi,

    Agree 100% - a very nice score and good work to get them ready for active duty. Many happy years with them!
