I have been using the same pipe every day for over a year. I clean it regularly and yet it still smokes perfectly fine.
I have about three dozen pipes that were given to me by a former pipe smoker that I am planning on selling. Here is the reason, all the pipes I got were the standard style dime store pipes from the 1960's and 1970's. They cleaned up well and I bagged them. The pipe I smoke on everyday is a Savinelli and I do use the little moistener filter. After having smoked both styles of pipes, I found I prefer the Savinelli. So I figured if I sell off the other pipes then I'll get some funds for another Savinelli.
Anyway, would someone sell pipes on E-Bay or here?
