So I've introduced a buddy of mine to pipe smoking, and he had me clean up some old estates he found laying around in a shed.

He handed me three pipes, one of which was plastic, and all were covered in cobwebs. One even had a spider in the bowl Shocked The two smokable pipes were an old cob and a Falcon-esque semi-bent briar.



Let's start with the briar.



Nothing really seemed wrong with it, other than the creepy ass spider that was living in it! It's a replaceable briar bowl on a nylon base made by a company called Coolmaster. It has a stinger filter that was coated in coagulated tobacco juice, and the bowl had a thick uneven cake that reeked of latakia.

The cob looked kinda bad, but was just really dusty.



After cleaning out the cobwebs, I noticed that this pipe was unsmoked!  It has to be 20 years old, but the inside of the bowl looks brand new! I suspect that it's a Missouri Meerschaum but can't be sure.

Now they look all nice and shiny and are ready to smoke!

Good job on the clean ups. That cool master is an interesting piece, and they seem to be coming back into style.
