Welcome to DadsPipes.com, a site dedicated to exploring the art of tobacco pipe restoration.
On the Blog page you’ll find posts on all kinds of restoration projects, from simple care and maintenance through more involved repairs like shank banding, contrast staining and crack repair.
All information, methods and techniques are offered freely to the pipe community for individual use. As with all skilled activities, pipe repair and restoration takes practice and patience. Those new to the hobby are encouraged to take their time and master the basics before tackling major repairs.
For those not wanting to take on their own repairs, I offer complete repair and restoration services for both Canadian and international clients . Check out the Pipe Repairs page for details.
