I'm a big fan of the Comoy's shape 284, but they don't come up often and are pricey. I found this "The Guidall London Pipe" shape 284 on Ebay earlier this week. It was in rough shape, but still looked solid, so I took a gamble. It took a lot of work, but I'm pleased with result. The stamping indicated a post WWII pipe (per Comoys guidelines). I detailed the restoration steps at Steve's Reborn Pipes blog and you can read more here: http://rebornpipes.wordpress.com/2013/07/20/restoration-the-guidall-284/ The pipe mud used in the bowl is drying, so I'll wait a few days for the first smoke. I've been told that this is a premade stem but it doesn't feel bad in my mouth (rather soft, like a Charatan DC stem feels to me). A few before and after shots.
