My old friend is better than ever!

My 30-year-old Canadian is one of my favorite smokers, so I was crushed when it took a swan dive onto the garage floor and the shank snapped near the bowl.

I learned of Briarville’s services and Rich’s skills and decided to give him a chance. I am so glad I did.

The pipe looks better than new. The war wound is just barely visible but could easily be mistaken for grain pattern, even on the top of the shank where a small piece broke away and required him to add a small fill. He made it look as though it had never broken and polished it up like a newly shelled chestnut.

Gorgeous work at a fair price and a two-week turnaround from Colorado to Virginia.

Money well spent. Thanks, Briarville!
