I have two pipes (from eBay) that leak moisture at the junction of the stem and shank. One is a Dr. Grabow Hillcrest and the other is a Paul's Cayuga pipe. A friend in my pipe club had the same problem with a new Savinelli. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Is there anything that can be done to fix the problem?
