Purchased this pipe about a month ago and it was in sad shape.  Stem covered in oxidation, dull finish and a crack in the shank.


It has been years since I had to send a pipe of for restoration and I asked a few of my friends and they recommended Floyd Norwood.  I packed the pipe up and in less then 10 days it was back in my hands looking like this.  I am very pleased as this is a scarce Leeds made pipe and they don't appear very often.  The pipe smokes wonderfully and Floyd Norwood receives plenty of appreciation from this pipe smoker.
