Ya, I heard that too. I'm definitely not buying that. I'm inclined to believe that it is as you say.. a story, with no basis of fact. It simply sounded good, so off it goes into the digital media and people start quoting it as if they heard the man say it himself.
Yeah 6 months is hard to believe, I have been smoking a no name lattice at work instead of a cob sense my wife bought it for me for my birthday. 1 bowl a day for a few weeks now and very little color. Maby if they smoked something soaked in rum or something, for 16 hours a day no breaks in-between. Too many variables to be 💯 but he'll anything is possible and to stain like that looks like one of those Morgan Bones lightning scorched pipes (don't know the technical term 😃) very cool looking.

I love this pipe. Every time I see it I start drooling. I'm a sucker for skull anything, and I've seen a bizillion skull meers, but this one of yours seems to hit all the right notes for me.
Kenan did that one very anatomically correct. Many are too horror movie or cartoonish for my liking. Ali can make a good one too.

Had bowls 50, 51, and 52 last night putzing around in the garage. I get my best smokes when I'm not paying attention to the pipe.

I tried keeping the pipe really clean in the beginning. And that has faded. I am past the point of caring.

The cake is pretty uneven, so instead of reaming it, I'll just hit it with a folded pipe cleaner lightly inside the bowl.

I go with the slightly moist paper towel after every couple bowls, usually when im done smoking it for the day, the @Chasing Embers method, like to keep the bowl at least fairly clean so it soaks up whatever the hell it soaks up to color, seems the cake would keep it from getting that "cool smoke" and oily goodness.

I don't see why it would be any different than a briar. A thin, hard, even Cake would be most desirable to provide the best smoking experience. I would think that's the priority.

We're seeing if caking up one works. So far it hasn't affected the smoking characteristics.

Yup! Gotta see what these Meers can handle! I'm 🤏 this close to taping the pipe out on the heel of my boot! 😂🤘
