Unless otherwise stated, I generally ream my bowls all the way back down to the original wood. I then use a special process involving alcohol to suck out as much of the old tobacco flavors from the inside of the bowls as possible. However its rare that the inside of the bowls will ever be fully tasteless, so expect a slight hint of ghost-flavor or even a slight alcohol sent on your first smoke (after your first smoke you should never again sense these ghostly scents). The stems ARE sanitized and cleaned thoroughly. Although the stems might not have tooth marks, remember these pipes are used and will naturally have small SCUFF marks on the bowls and stems; so dont be surprised if your stem, or bowl, has scuff marks on it. All pipes are finally waxed and buffed for presentation. My pipes are photographed in such a way to accentuate the wood grain and show details (even imperfections) otherwise invisible in normal photos. I photograph in a professional studio environment to get the best pictures possible. Due to the intense lighting involved in my photography process, the woods colors tend to be enhances beyond what the pipe might look like under normal sunlight and in normal conditions. In short, DONT expect your pipe to look EXACTLY like it does in my photos. Again, under the proper lighting, your pipe can look as it does in my photos, but I doubt youll ever encounter such intense lighting while smoking your pipe. Because I clean my bowls out all the way down to the wood, your pretty much smoking the equivalent of a new pipe. So to easy the breaking in process, I started coating some of the walls of some pipe bowl with a thin charcoal lining which should really help the breaking in process; as apposed to if the inside bowl was just bare wood. So if your pipe comes with a charcoal lining or cake its a lining that I myself put in not one that was left over from a previous owner. The lining I put in is made with completely sanitary charcoal powder and water, so it is not harmful or unclean by any means. And let me know that you no longer want to receive updates from the site.
