Peterson Pipe Refurb

Here is the third of a series of Peterson pipes that a friend sent me to refurb. It has been a pleasure to work on these pipes for him. Check out the “before” and “after” pics and let me know what you think!

Stem:
This stem had some oxidation and tooth marks so I wet-sanded it with 500 grit, 1000 grit, and 1200 grit. This process removed the oxidation and tooth marks. The inside of the stem was sanitized/cleaned with high proof vodka and pipe cleaners. Inside the tenon was a little bigger so I used q-tips on that part. I then used some permanent white paint to help fill in the “P” on the side of the stem. The stem was then finished off with a buffing of red tripoli and a buffing of carnauba wax.

Bowl:
The bowl was reamed to remove all carbon build up. There was some darkening on the rim of the bowl that I sanded off. The inside of the bowl and the shank were sanitized/cleaned with high proof vodka, q-tips, and pipe cleaners. The rim did not need to be stained before buffing because the buffing restored the color. The bowl was finished with a buffing of red tripoli and a buffing of carnauba wax.
