Was wondering if this is a burnout. Am new to pipe smoking and was wondering if this was actually a burnout or if it’s still good to smoke out of?5F76C3BE-9BDB-4806-A8CD-E2DE388239AB.jpeg

Was just making sure. I saw a little indentation at the bottom of the bowl and wasn’t sure if that was a burnout or not

Smoke it. What's the worst thing that can happen? Hope you had kids already.
Why there is a surplus of kids already. And if pipe smoking effected such things I wouldn't have to be so careful.
Ah alright I didn’t know that thank you for the advice!
Yeah that's why we are here. And also to stave off the ever encroaching boredom of modern life.

You'll know you have a burnout when a gob of lit tobacco drops in your lap.

Years ago I had a customer in my store who wanted to take up pipe smoking. He only want the "best" pipe and tobacco. I sold him a new Castello. A week later he came in and showed me the Castello had a hole burned right through near the bottom. I gave him a new pipe and advised him against puffing too hard or smoking in the wind. In about another week he came in and it was the same thing again. I tried to discuss it with him but he was irate that I had sold him "defective" pipes. I told him I had smoked Castellos for over 35 years and had never had a burnout, or even heard of one. Finally, I gave him a refund and told him I would not sell him any more guaranteed pipes. I never saw him again. Good riddance. puffy

I hope you told him brûlée torches aren’t recommended for pipes lol. Bummer this happened and hope you didn’t eat too much $$.
