I never thought about it until seeing this post to ask about what sellers mean by sanitized. I always assumed they just gave it a quick swab of alcohol or something but you're right that sanitized should mean more than that.
The one pictured came from an online retailer with this statement posted.

Unlike popular auction sites, we carefully inspect and restore all the estate pipes we receive before offering them for sale: Whether smoked or unsmoked, each estate pipe has been thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, and revitalized by our experienced pipe restoration team.

An email has been sent to them.

This ,I have been encountered this in the recent past with few pipes bought from a couple of reputable Danish outfits.makes me mad.if I'm paying top dollar for refurbished estate pipes could I expect them to be ready for smokes without taking any additional internal cleaning from my part.
