Yet another refurb by Troy that is stellar. If you have not visited his blog yet follow the links and have a look. He is doing a great job.
Since my last KB&B Yello Bole 07 Billiard ended up being a odd and unique prototype ( i know whoa is me ) i ended up looking for another for my regular smoking rotation. I really like the Kaywoodie/Yello Bole 07 shape and size of the classic billiard .Every one i own is a great smoking pipe and can be found for a song most of the time .To me its a American classic.
I was able to pick this pre 1955 Imperial 07 up. It looked like it was a good example and had very decent grain.
After a slight reaming and cleaning of the shank i put the stem in for a good soak in 91% alcohol .
