So a few years ago, I had a de-branded Dr. Grabow meerschaum lined pipe. It was my favorite.... until the meerschaum cracked. Anyways, I thought a few months ago, that I should get another. So I bought a new Grabow meerschaum lined pipe.
Now the new pipe leaks pipe goop. The brown stuff that smells like 10 years of built up tobacco tar. It gets all over your hands when you smoke, and you cant get the smell out.
I appears to leak out of where the 'metal filter insert' fits into the 'plastic stem,' not where the stem fits into the bowl. Is there any way to fix this?
