Agreed that the extended meaning of "rim weeping" is classic:).

Applying the match to the tobacco with, from what I understand, release of moisture is specifying at what point combustion/condensation occurs. Maybe?

I smoke Escudo in the REO and Cumberland in the AeroBilliard. I'm at the beginning of smoking a second tin of Escudo in this pipe. I've had this pipe since December and probably smoked it a dozen times. Good smoker. I've only had the AB since May and smoked it about the same number of times. Also a good smoker. I've smoked many tins of Escudo and Cumberland before in other pipes without incident. Whether the tobacco/pipe relationship has anything to do with rim weeping is anybody's guess.

As regards the substance I'd say it's water; I checking the REO for stain but it was clear.

I've noticed with my vaper blends, I tend to experience more condensation and stem gurgling than with other blends. I have also heard other pipe smokers claim that virginia based blends seem to create more condensation in their pipes. It may in fact be more an issue of tobacco blend, than pipe design, or briar curing. I dunno, just a possible explanation. I suppose there is also the possibility that it is a combination of the two.

If you are set on strict dedication of those pipes paired with those blends, you may never know for certain.

You're right; time to manipulate the variables.

To be clear, without pictures, this isn't the sheen of moisture that happens especially when one lights up the first "getting started" lights of a bowl...right? I do notice at times a slight sticky, tawny-colored substance that's likely from the flame/tobacco moisture mixing with the natural tars and not-quite-combusted stuff sticking to the rim. It's easy enough to wet a finger and remove it, but I usually polish it away when it's "pipe cleaning time." 🤷

Cool

The AB weeps much more than the REO. It's clear, and I wouldn't say that it's combusted tars. The REO weeps throughout the bowl. I saw some at the very end of the bowl. I put it between my fingers to see if it was dye, but it wasn't.

Thanks to all who contributed to this thread.
