I've been smoking my six or seven Gawith & hoggrath blends in a 25 year old small Savinelli that's about worn out. I have a lesser used meerschaum, but was concerned the blends might "ghost" the pipe. I had thought through reading that this type of pipe wouldn't. Thought I'd check with the experts before I try. Thanks. On a similar note, anyone had issues with fighting with G&H best browns or dark flake?
