    Smile I smoke with the same pipe every day...

    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?

    Bryant, You have to be on the forum, I think for 90 days and have 100 posts, to access the buy and sell part of the forum. Back in the 60s I had two pipes and smoked six pipefuls a day. I did that for a while before I bought another pipe and it didn't hurt them at all. If you tell my wife that I will deny it. I think all that rotation stuff is an excuse to buy more pipes, but it is an excuse I use.

    The key is this spring loaded scraping tool that I got. It basically scrapes all the carbon out of the bowl with a few turns, I then soak the pipe in rum or scotch for a few hours, then run some pipe cleaners through it, and replace the wood filter. I have smoked 6-8 bowls a day from the same pipe since around Feb 2010. Interestingly, the stem is still tight and she smokes really nice.

    While it may be better for a pipe in the long run (several years), smoking one pipe all the time will probably not hurt it in the short term. That is, if you keep it clean & maintain it well.

    I have a pipe that I will often smoke several times back to back, with no issues. I clean it everytime though.

    I say good for you Bryant!

    How often do you clean the pipe?
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    i agree w/ nachman, this thing about pipes turning sour,(maybe if you used lemon flavored tobacco), i don't believe that nonsense. but if the pipe smokes fine i think it'll just get better with time. mike

    You can smoke the same pipe, day after day, and only clean it a couple times a week, when it clogs up, and you and your pipe will be fine. I do it all the time.

    Daily use works best for cobs (being comfortably disposable)... although I have yet to burn one of mine out/clog it.

    I smoke the pipe for a week straight then at the end of the week, I clean it really well. Same pipe now going on about a year and half with six plus bowls a day. I could care less if it burns out eventually, I'll just buy another and do the same thing. I'm hardcore like that. I have probably three dozen pipes here, I only smoke one.

    I simply cannot smoke the same pipe daily, I only smoke twice a week so they get plenty of rest. That being said I believe one pipe would work fine after all thats what the old schoolers did.
