    I don’t know if it’s really for sale but he’d probably trade a tin for one of your kidneys.

    Brown Mark on Vulcanite Stem on Brand New Ropp Pipe

    Looks like a mold line from manufacturing. If it collects moisture it will discolor. It should have been buffed out. I’d send it back.

    Unburned Tobacco or Dottle Question

    I smoke to the bottom if I’m enjoying it. I usually dump some ash about 2/3 in if it gets hard to relight. If it’s still good I’ll stir the bottom. But if it gets unpleasant I’ll dump it half way. My pipe serves me.

    Pipes & Cigars

    You only have 30 days to return tobacco. This tin had no issues with the seal. Bottom of the tin had no rust. Just opened it this weekend. It was an old tin. I've had to move several to jars as they form tiny rust pits on the bottom of the Classic Burly Kake, Anniversary Kake and Marble Kake...

    Not a Beginner... But did I Break this new Stanwell?

    The top and sides look great. It’s hard to smoke through the bottom. I’ve burned through the side of several cobs and even a few briars, but you really have to try to burn a hole through the bottom

    Is this normal?

    The pipe is odd. High stummel drill and off center at the bowl. You probably won’t be able to pass a pipe cleaner all the way. Just use a fluffy pipe cleaner as far as it will go several times each smoke.

    Cleansing The Palate Between/During Smoking Sessions

    I don’t think I’ve ever cleansed my palate. My palate must be filthy. Probably worse than the top of my fridge. I cleaned it three years ago

    Looking for Tips : Moderate Oxidation Removal on Vulcanite Stems

    A tiny bit of acetone on a soft cloth will dissolve sulfides quickly but I don’t know what it will do to a white spot.
