What do you use?



I think I've had almost every contraption invented..
I always hear people complain about them but the British Buttner seems to do the trick for me.

THE BRITISH BUTTNER PIPE REAMER
This Pipe Reamer is manufactured from specially selected Sheffield Steel and the blades are hardened to prevent damage and to give maximum efficiency. The Edge cutters are hollow ground and the Reamer is completely rust proof and the cutters guaranteed not to chip in use.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CORRECT USE
1. The Reamer must be at its minimum when inserted into the bowl.
2. The Reamer must be inserted at an angle of 90" and maintained at such an angle.
3. Rotate the Reamer in both directions until the blades are cutting smoothly into the carbon wall, using light firm pressure.
4. Continue until the desired thickness of carbon wall is obtained.
5. Great care must be taken where the carbon deposit is lumpy .the Reamer must not be forced but gently rotated in both directions until the lumps are removed.

Do not allow your pipe to become so badly carboned as to prevent insertion of the reamer into the bowl.

Remember that an excessively carboned pipe in brittle and must therefore be reamed with due care.
Made In Great Britain

I have both a Senior Reamer and a GBD version. But often after a smoke I simply use an old toothbrush to give it a little scrub. Knocks the loose stuff off.

I don't use a reamer because I keep my cake trimmed to near nothing with a Savinelli Fitsall. Best pipe tool I've ever used. Give a trace ream before every smoke, pipes are always sweet. (Latakia Lover turned me on to these, all props go to him).

I'm a minimalist when it comes to cake, less is more.

I'm much the same way.. I use bristle cleaners after every smoke..

But sometimes you just happen upon a pipe that needs reamed. Estates, Gifts, etc

I use an old model Kleen Reem. Very similar to the Senior Reamer.

I've used a Senior for years and it works well. However, even set at it's maximum width it isn't wide enough to properly ream my larger bowls. It works great up to around 21mm or so, but not beyond that.

I have the Senior Pipe Reamer,a Castleford Reamer with 4 various diameter cutters,
and a Hen&Rooster pen knife.The Senior doesn't open wide enough to do larger bowls,
so then I use the Castleford,and if the bowl is around 1" I go with the pen knife.
There is the ultimate pipe knife,"Langoulie" Evil or Very Mad ,a French blade that costs about $150
and has a variety of exotic wood handles.I will get one someday when I have $150 that
I don't know what to do with. Shocked
I don't find myself reaming pipes very often,I have 40-50 pipes and I use them all so
no huge cake builds up in any.
