After you clean the pipe you have smoke by the fireplace, in the kitchen, surrounded by your loving family, just like Mister Moo.

Take some picks let's see what ya got going on.

FWIW most estate pipes that I have acquired ( especially from EGay ) require a lot of love, work, booze, butt load of pipe cleaners, and elbow grease to get back into smoking condition.

I see a little irregularity in the cake - no biggie, that. Smooth it out a little and make sure no unburned flakes are trapped in those chunks. Why are you suspecting this pipe is burned out?

A burnout is going to grossly enlarge the airhole where it enters the chamber, make a pretty obvious pit on the wall of the chamber, create a burn mark on the outside of the pipe and, maybe, tip itself off with a super-hotspot you feel while smoking the pipe before something else pops up.

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.

I had thought it maybe a burn out because it looked to be deeper into the wall then an area that looked to be clean briar but it could just be a lighter section of cake. I'll clean it up guys, thanks

Chris I found that using a dull butter knife works best for me. I purchased a adjustable reamer, but I found that for evening out cake the butter knife works best. Just dont use one with a serrated edge ....

When I'm wet sanding a black stem with micro mesh, why do I get brown residue? Am I supposed to continue until I don't get any more brown residue? Even if the stem appears black?

As surface oxidation is cleaned off with light rubbing the stem goes to black; rub out evenly with finer and finer cloth until polished to a wet-glass sheen.

Practice on making a mirror finish on your thumbnail if you want to see how it works. When you're done you can look into it and comb your hair if the light is right.

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

So I've been looking into pipe smoking for the past week since my cigar costs are going through the roof and I stumbled onto the pipe section here I am such a newb it hurts, because I have no idea what anyone is talking about on most posts.

I started reading the beginning of this thread and found a few helpful pointers

I found a decent corncob pipe based on a post somewhere in the first few pages
http://www.corncobpipe.com/product.php?productid=16140
What else do I need for it? Filters, new stems, etc... like the suggested items section says? Do I still need all the tools and pipe cleaners since its a corn cob pipe?

I also read that I should start with pipe tobacco that is commonly available in drug stores and grocery stores, but I looked and the stores around here don't have any, I asked too, and i'd have to go into Austin (an hour drive) so what's available on the internet that might be good for a newb like me who is used to cigars?

Finally, is there a website that has how to's for filling the pipe, etc...? Because I don't know a single person who smokes a pipe in the real world and I have a feeling finding out exactly how to do everything through this post would be time consuming, and I know there are probably things I wouldn't even know to ask since I've never even held a pipe before

Basically, I have no idea even where to start except that site for corn cob pipes, and sites that sell pipe tobacco listed here in the pipe section of CA

Thanks

You can lose the filters - almost everyone does. Yes to fluffy-type pipecleaners and yes to a cheap multi-tool scraper/tamper or, as many prefer, a big-ass nail with the point ground off or a golf tee. They have golf tees in Texas, do they not?

The cob that's best is made by Missouri Meerschaum; China and Korean imports kinda suck. No need for extra stems if you don't sit on the pipe or starting chewing on it real munchy-like.

Carter Hall, Prince Albert or Half&Half are good starters. If you can't find any at a grocery or drugstore check out jrcigar.com pipe section. Lots of online options.

Thank you for the answer

I'll be ordering the Great Dane Egg after I get back from SC in december, and that will give me time to research some pipe tobacco and smoking technique

And I can get a golf tee

I want to remove that, well whatever it is from the inside bowl of my Peterson. Would I be ok with just sanding down the inside with some 100 grit sandpaper?

Haha, but my wife's family is full of cigar smokers, so that's where november's tobacco budget went. I'll definately be starting pipes asap though, the more I look, the more interested I get, its definitely looking like something I could really get into

You can sand it out, but the consensus is that it is easier to just smoke a couple bowls in it than it is to sand out and risk scraping up the rim.

If it's a new Pete, you are talking about nasty stain. If it's an old Pete you're talking about - nasty cake? Which it is?
