      Thanks for your interest Jay. If you notice, the smooth Peterson System Standard Republic of Ireland 312: Length: 6 5/8 inches, listed above has already been commissioned and is not available. There was another, 312 listed, a rusticated finish, which I just removed because it’s already gone – sorry for the site not being updated! Let me know if you see anything else here or in the Store. Thanks!

  22. I’m very interested in B1156, the Edelweiss Bruyere. Would you mind giving me 2 prices on it? 1) Restored & 2) “As Is”?
    I’ve been restoring pipes for a couple years myself – and I’m doing quite a bit with horn these days. But I’m just not sure I want to take this on for myself right now. I probably would want you to do it…
