    Finished the repairs on this old cob, new shank of osage and rio grande cane stem.
    Some aged Virginia/Perique from the cellar.
    A fine bit of literature.
    And... So to Bed

    Beautiful! I love it.
    I'm currently working on one of my Legends that cracked a while back. Patching it up, sanding, painting and adding a churchwarden stem.

    Is that a stain on the cob, or did it color with use?

    KT, I bought it off of ebay about 10 years ago (for next to nothing). Bowl only. It had a broken off shank and no stem. I drilled out the shank, replaced it and then made a stem for it. The color of the bowl seems to be natural and unstained although I have added some beeswax to hold the moisture in.

    I got a beautiful Danish maker ( really expensive) "sail" shape briar that I cracked the boxwood portion (of the shank) last week. (dog gonit). I figure to replace it with a new piece of holly or maple and a thin portion of delrin, will make her good as new. (probably better, since the rest is well broken in)...LOL
