Looks awesome, well used. Do you ever wax that bad boy
It has been waxed a number of times over the years. It has been closer to 3 or 4 years since it was last done. I have a couple meer's that I would like to do when the weather warms up some.

The color is actually darker than the pictures show .. it was a very gold, mid-afternoon light today when I took them.

My only other Altinok is a Lee Van Cleef. This one has never been waxed as I like the wax job it came with:

Both beautiful. As to the billiard, did you re-wax by dipping or painting it on?
I’m considering waxing my lattice meer, but there’s so much... “texture”.

I do both, just depends on how I feel that day. Sometimes I cork the bowl and shank and let the pipe bathe in melted beeswax. Other times, like I did yesterday, I apply melted wax with a bent pipe cleaner and use a hairdryer to heat the pipe so it absorbs the wax easier. Both methods work well for me.
