So... I'm kinda freaking out here. Not sure if I should or not. I have been smoking my Savinelli Duca Carla for a good month or so now, and to my alarm, the rim of the bowl is starting to lose some of the paint.. or finish... or whatever it is. Its not overly noticeable, but I can't help but feel that this is wrong. I've seen some beautiful estate pipes that didn't have this. Is this normal? I use a lighter when I smoke. Normally a bic, but I have a zippo in the mail. Should I start using matches instead? Or is this completely normal and I'm losing it over nothing? I ask because I have a Pete on the way, and would REALLY hate to start bad habits with my two nicest pipes.
