With a great avatar comes great misidentification
I've heard a little heat will pull out teeth marks in vulcanite but not sure. I haven't used the technique. Beautiful pipe.Smoking a mixture of Gaslight and Sixpence in my Monterey. This pipe is becoming one of my favorites (I have so many at this point I can't remember what they all are). It clenches nicely, is very comfortable to hold, and has that classic 1940s styling. Oh yeah, it smokes good too, if that matters.

On a side note, does anyone know how to get tooth dents out of the stem? This pipe was the only one on eBay that didn't have a hole chewed in the stem (which is why I got it) but it does have a couple of good dents. I don't mind a little chatter, but I don't want to turn these into holes.
