Refurbish of a Weber Virgin Deluxe 375 Poker

Like Troy I love older Weber pipes and find that they are a good value and often overlooked. The grain on this one is a beauty Troy. Very nice work on it. I also like the mix for the patch – vulcanite/charcoal/super glue… going to have to give that a try on a couple I have here. Thanks

I acquired this Weber recently off  Ebay. From the pictures i saw it looked like a fine, excellent condition example. The Virgin Deluxe is i believe one of Weber’s top line models. Most likely the pipe is from the 1960’s-1970’s.s-l1600 (640x391).jpg

I have a few pokers made by Weber now but none are a straight stem like this one. All are either a cherrywood shape or a  straight saddle bit. Like the one in this old Weber ad.1947-weber-pipes-c2-369.jpg

These 375’s don’t pop up often so i bid and hoped for the best. Luckily there was not much interest in it and i won. I gladly now include it in my American made poker collection.

The pipe arrived and indeed it was in  very good condition with no major problems. The stem was very tight, so it spent a couple of hours in the freezer. 100_9823 (640x480).jpg100_9824 (640x480).jpg
