"Shawn, I recommend storing it unloaded and clean as reasonably possible.  If the pipe doesn't dry out and rest adequately between smokes, it can get sour.  I store mine with a clean pipe cleaner in, just to help absorb any extra…"

"One of my favorites is "The Soul of Baseball. A Road Trip Through Buck O'Neils America" by Joe Posnanski. It has a lot of stories from the Negro Leagues and I think Buck O'Neil is a fascinating character. Shawn"

I currently use an EA Carey "Magic inch", but I'm looking to add some estate pipes to my collection.I was wondering what the consensus is on storing a pipe between smokes? Is it best to leave the ash and any remaining tobacco in the bowl or empty it when putting it aside for the evening? My concern, and the reason for the question, is that there is sometimes a small amount of moisture in the bottom of the bowl. It's not much (and is probably due to…See More
