I finished this 584S New Standard this morning, and it will soon be on it's way to the collection of a pipe buddy in Indiana.

I had never seen the 584 shape before and I could only find a pair sold by Coopersark in 2008. It is similar to the more common 549 GBD.

The full restoration details in the link, with before & after pix below.

Great job Al on a cracking looking pipe. Looks like some nice birds eye popping out there. I like the slightly squat bowl and the stem detail too. He must be a good friend!!!

I'll admit I liked the way that pipe looked before you worked your magic on it. Looks even better now!! Nice job on the restoration.
