Any experts here who can "restore" this pipe?

Check the lovely cake, almost looks like a Falcon in there

Pass.  This guy has got a bunch of weird stuff for sale, not that there's anything wrong with that, but I think I'll also pass on the Mexican chicken or whatever it is @$300 or the "Leatherhead Originals Weird Bizarre Leather Sex Adult Size Manikin Doll Fetish."  But who am I to pronounce judgment?--your tastes may differ.

No way to repair that pipe. You can certainly make a new stem but,the crack in the bowl
leaves it really unsmokeable being the crack will only grow and most likely burnout in
that area. He should have left it were he found it,.....in the trash. The value this pipe
might have had before it cracked from lack of a good ream ever so often is nil.

I agree, it looks pretty risky. Once you remove that cake, you could put in a coating of mortar repair and hope for the best. But, a new stem will run you $30 and the pipe might only last one smoke. So you would be at $60 on this pipe with no assurances it would last. As mentioned, there are plenty of Sasieni bargains out there (I paid $90 for one recently that is in far better shape) .

I only posted this because of the sellers message: "Maybe you may have this piece of crap fixed by a witch doctor (only a miracle can do that) and then enjoy the luxury of a ..... ( somethinh along thoese lines)

I also send him a message about the antique corn cob pipe. I offered to supply him with lots of "new antique" corn cobs at a reasonable price. Still waiting for his reply.

The crack in this "luxury" pipe was most probably caused by the excessive cake.
