    So my Dr. Grabow Omega that I believed stolen a few months ago got found.

    I found it under some comic books in a comic book box I stored away a few months ago. I was so excited! It was my first briar! I turned the stem to clean it..AND IT BROKE! I mean BROKE. Like the stem plastic atoms decided to break down and it was soft and pliable!

    :D

    Send it to Dr. Grabow with an explantion and they will most probably replace it or order a new one from the factory.

    At this moment I'm smoking my very first pipe, a Grabow Silver Duke and if it got lost or broken I'd be pissed!

    I can think of little worse (other than completely running out of tobacco of course) than finding an old friend and then having it go zap on you. My total sypathies are with you - mind you you'll probably be down with a bad bout of Sudden Onset PAD in the next few days which'll be sign of recovery!

    Best meantime

    my very first briar was a grabow. never actually got a chance to smoke it, one of my friends killed it. i was having a conversation, she asks "can i see your pipe?" i said yes. she came back a half hour later holding it by the stem. the bottom was almost completely burned out and you could see daylight and the thing reeked of marijuana. apparently she'd been using it with one of those torch style cigar lighters. i was livid, i'd bought it about an hour before that happened.

    +10 pnts fnr Shootinok.

    Everytime Domon said that, I kept thinking about a proctologist. Ouch!

    So doing a good amount of interwebz searching for a replacement and find myself looking for something similiar to the Sherlock Holmes (2009) pipe. Closest Ive found is a black Czech straight pipe. Ebay has many for $20

    Wataru..................
    How'd you like a Brewster imported briar straight stem to replace it? Used. Very little cake build-up. It has that aluminum trap thingy in the stem. Pretty damn good condition if you enjoy straight stem pipes. It'd clean up nicely. Wilson

    edit: p.s. it is a squatty smooth billiard with a nice grain to it

    Wataru.......don't freak.......it's free....no charge ever.......I'd rather see someone that enjoys straight stems enjoy a pipe than for it to set and gather dust (I am not a straight stem fan--please no one get offended). AND.....I'll ship it to you free of charge. "They say" nothing in life is free. I beg to disagree with "them". This will offset and "balance out" your loss. Wilson
