    Picked up my Mastercraft Popular today from our local shop. There is a young kid there that does great at refurbishing old pipes.

    I figured that Mastercraft craft must have been part of Grabow if you had one :D Someday I will show you the limited edition tuck pointing trowel that Grabow made for their 25th anniversary :laff:.

    I need need to get a Grabow, what I really want is one of the pipes they made with Rhododendron wood. I should contact Ted about that.

    That does resemble the Omega, which is the best Dr G going. Nice work by the kid. Enjoy

    I started out with my Grandfathers old hand carved pipe on a whim.
    Then I found this place and now I need to join some kind of support group to stop buying pipes. Talk about enablers! :xd:

    Thanks! His name is Jason and only in his early 20's, but the kid had a knack for cleaning pipes.
    I enjoy this pipe a lot!

    It took me awhile to find it, but here is the laser guided Grabow tuck-pointing trowel.
