So, you disparage the stems from someone who rinces [sic] with water, to dispel that it keeps “anyone” elses pipes stems shiny? That’s the logic? :puffy:
Except Duane, who seems to be the only one who gets oxidation on his stems, and the rest of us have beautiful stems that are as shiny as new.
Nope, just pointing out the error.

rabid in this debate.
Well, you're not getting "tone" in the written word. Actually, I just threw a chair at the wall, and packed something with latakia... But, I throw chairs at the wall rather often. Rabid defcon 6? :puffy:

I started thoroughly cleaning my pipes, after a day of smoking, 2 years ago. No more smell. After a day of smoking, I run an Everclear soaked pipe cleaner through the draft hole and bowl.

Are you water cleaner types aware of what fish do in water? This is the reason God invented Guinness and other lesser adult beverages, so people wouldn't feel the need to drink water.

W.C. Fields said what fish do in water! That is where I first thought of why it was better to drink orange juice, even if it had orange juice in it.

What's the difference between a water flush and packing a bowl with wet coffee grounds for hours at a time? More moisture would be taken up by the wood because the wet grounds are in contact with the chamber for a much longer time. One is as good as, or as bad as the other.

I've run some econometric calculations and estimated that approximately 27 hours and 12 minutes worth of combined man hours were spent on this thread, still with no real solution to the original post (this figure has a standard error of 1.26 hours if anyone is interested). But since no one on here has a job, the nation's GDP didn't budge at all.

Good point.
What may not be apparent is that moisture is introduced in the chamber, airway and mortise joint just by smoking. And that moisture is hot, and is present for the length of the smoke. Quantity by weight is minuscule, but as far as possibly introducing moisture into the briar, that's where it'll happen the most.

Yeh, I get the idea that these guys imagine us boiling the pipes in water for hours at a time, ha ha. Not, just rinsing them with water and then immediately wiping them down. More water is likely to be in contact with and absorbed by the wood if you packed a bowl of FVF and smoked it for an hour. :puffy:
