I have far too many pipes, mostly briar, some olivewood, several meerschaum and a dozen cobs. A couple of years ago, I gave most of the high grades to one of my daughters to sell on Ebay. I wasn't smoking them very often and she needed the extra cash. For almost two years, I've been primarily smoking the cobs; almost all are the Mark Twain model, fitted with Italian acrylic stems. I always fill the bowls with a pipe cleaner through the stem, shank, and into the bowl. I never have a plugged pipe when I do this.
