Blue Room Briars does not typically repair pipes; however, we do contract out to other repairmen in the industry. We would be happy to refer you to a repairman, or handle the exchange ourselves for a small fee. *
Many times the perfect looking pipes are less than perfect smokers. Fortunately, there are many modifications that can improve the performance of these pipes. Services include ramping airways (in order to pass a cleaner), opening the draft hole in the stummel, re-engineering or cutting a slot in stems, and smoothing sharp edges. Many of these services are available for free on pipes purchased through us, however we will alter other pipes from your collection for a nominal fee. For a consultation please give us a call at (937) 303-9695 or use the contact us form here.
