Ok, a friend gifted me a nice little meerschaum. When I started cleaning it it will not even come close to passing a cleaner. It has a a weird plastic thing in beetween the shank and stem that is so small you can barely fit the wire part of a pipe cleaner through. I will post some pictures tomorrow, but this thing wont smoke well at all unless I do something drastic. Any ideas?

I had to, on my SMS meer, take out the plastic threaded bit that joins the meer shank to the stem and widen and chamfer the openings. Narrow openings were of warning from some of the more experienced gents here to me when I was curious at venturing into meerville. Hopefully you can do something to open up that draw a little. They don't always pass pipe cleaners, but you should at least be able to smoke the thing with a little ingenuity.

Cool
