Pipe Burn Out

Discussion in 'The Brown Leaf' started by Uncle Jackie, May 23, 2012.

  1. Out of curiosity, how many of you have ever burned out a pipe? In my 25 years of smoking, I have only ever burned out one, and it was entirely my fault for smoking a brand new pipe outdoors in near hurricane winds.
  2. Not yet, but I pay special attention to shield the bowl when the ceiling fan is on.
  3. I burned out my first cob pipe in a few months and one of my first briar pipes, a cheap basket pipe, after about 6 years. I'm not sure that I wasn't scraping it down too vigorously after a smoke and basically dug through the bottom of the bowl.
  4. My first pipe was a Savenelli that I dug too hard on and burned clear through the bottom in about 5 years. Tough lesson learned, but my other 24+ briars are now handled very gently.
  5. Never burned out a briar, but I pay special attention to taking care of the m and maintaining the cake at a proper thickness. I've burned up a lot of cobs over the years though.
