Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

I'll chime in with a question about your pipe here. I used to have the same problem with one of my first pipes. I later found out that the drillhole into the pipe was raised and off-center (no...

Just get some ultra fine sandpaper and wrap it around your finger and give it a few spins through there. That will even it out.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Troy,

Take some really light grit sandpaper and wrap it around your finger and then rub it around in there. Only do this enough to take off the coating. You definitely don't want to get too wild...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

Matt, a ton of people do that. They make their own tobacco parfait if you will. I usually do something similar if I do this like a Virginia on top and a Virginia/Perique blend on bottom. But I...

I bow down to your wisdom Moo. You are correct. I am not as long in the tooth as you but I'm not too far behind.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

Also, you can always cut up a flake with a knife or put it into a coffee grinder for a finer cut if you like. There's really no right or wrong way to smoke flakes or rub them out.

I always rub...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

Yes it can get moldy. But the white that you are seeing may be sugar crystals. If it is fuzzy then it is mold, if it looks more like sugar crystals then this is part of the aging process and is...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

Just thread some pipe cleaners in there a couple of times when you are smoking. I do this often to clear out the draft hole and also to dry things up in the bottom of the pipe.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

I see Moo's point with this one. But I usually just start out with whatever I'm going to smoke in that pipe.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

In my experience they don't to a point. If you smoke something that has a distinct, strong taste or aroma, such as Gawith's 1792 flake, it will begin to ghost after a few pipefuls. However, it will...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

From what I have been able to discern, "Freehand" means when a carver breaks away from the usual shapes that he/she is known for or their specific shape charts. This means that they are usually not...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

I've always assumed that it has to do with the flavor and/or the aroma. Unless other people out there are doing other things to Honeydews that I don't know about.

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fa

Lat stink takes hold pretty fast if you ask me. It will eventually go away but it also depends on how long and how much you smoked in that pipe. It's always nice to start off a new blend genre with...
