I will try!Enjoy the hell out of it!
It was advertised as an 'egg' shape and that's good enough for me!Did Nording call this an egg or a scoop? It's very handsome. Are the chamber walls over-reamed or just carved thin?
Thank you! There's certainly a sense of solidity from a square stem, especially a thick one.Very nice pipe. I gravitate more to square and diamond shanks.
Whenever I get an estate, whether to keep or to sell, one of my steps is the salt and alcohol treatment. It involves plugging the shank with a Q-tip wrapped in plastic wrap, filling the bowl with kosher salt, and adding alcohol (in my case vodka) and letting it soak for at least 24 hours. As the pipe sits, tars, gunk, and whatever flavour might have been in the briar get wicked away.What are you doing here? Is that Rock Salt in the bowl? Please explain
It shouldn't matter too much what the shape is. Maybe use a finer salt to get into all the little spots in there? The trick is to leave the pipe be and let the salt and alcohol do it's thing. I should add that this is only for briar, not for a meer.Any tips on de-ghosting a system pipe? I’ve got a sweet little Savinelli 620 Oom Paul on the way, my second one. The first was not a system though.
