Yosemite's Dr. Grabows

I just got my 2nd Grabow....a Viscount #42.. I love the shape and small size... I've steamed out a few dents,cleaned it out with a retort and lots of pipe cleaners...covered the chatter with a bit of shrink tube...I'll fill with a bit of black CA later and clean up and wax the finish a bit later but it looks great to me as is right now....

Outstanding grain on your Viscount! Congrats.

I have a 85 Viscount with grain like that

Nice looking.

Darn right it looks great! Some real nice grain there. I have just recently discovered the shrink tube solution which others seem to have known about for a long time. It makes the Lucite stems a lot more comfortable for me without being bulky and slippery like the softy bits. It also keeps the Vulcanite ones from discoloring from my toxic saliva. Good work and a fine pipe!

Thanks for the kind words folks...

I thought I'd better add my first Dr. Grabow but though again....why not take new pics of both in 100 percent all natural pipe holders?....not vegan mind you.... but natural... 3 hobbies at once....pipes,plants and pics...

Nice photography!

Pitcher plants?
They are pretty, but the #42 is spectacular.

Thanks,I think I'm lucky to have found such a nice pipe.....Yes ,North American pitcher plants...Sarracenia ....I love the weird little bug eaters....
I'm happy to report the #42 smokes as nice as it looks...I'm a bit past half way through a bowl of Vauen Zeppelin....they are playing very well together...

Dr. Grabow #3

Another added to the collection.....a Starfire...Started out not too bad....I cleaned it,filled a couple chips in the rim filled,refinished....I like it....here are 4 pics starting with how it was after first removing years of grime...then oxidation and charring removal just before filling chips with briar dust and glue plus a bit of a ream out.. and then a couple after getting it back to usable.....it could still use a bit more polish but I'm impatient....

Looks like a winner! Much better.

I like your collection thus far! As well as your living pipe holders.

a new addition arrived today....I took a chance on eBay...the listing only had 3 less than great pictures but it was dirt cheap and no one else bidding....I don't think it's ever been smoked and I'm happy to have Dr. Grabow #4 for me...
