So I've been smoking cobs regularly for a few months now, and I recently decided to step up my game so I bought a briar pipe. Its a Brigham, since they're easy to find in Canada, and they're in my price range. I got it home, and it was one of the best smokes I've ever had, but when I was cleaning up afterwards I noticed that when swabbing around the rim some of the stain came off onto my q-tip. I tested an area near the bottom of the pipe and the same thing happened. I'm only using my saliva, as they say you should to remove the tar from the rim. Is this normal for a new pipe? And if not, how can i fix it? I love the pipe, but the last thing I want is it losing its colour.
