Hi there - Quite a few months ago I bought an estate pipe on ebay for a couple of pounds. It is an Algerian briar pipe made be Amiel. The pipe had a heavy floral ghosting (I suspect Condor or St Bruno) and even after a couple of rounds with salt and alcohol it was still pretty ghosted. I put it to one side and forgot about it, until this morning. I was trying to find a pipe to smoke some St Bruno in, and thought that rather than trying to get rid of the ghost, I should just encourage it. The smoke I had from it was amazing and revealed elements of the St Bruno that I hadn't previously picked up on. Around halfway through I got a couple of very soapy puffs from the ghost, but that was the only time the ghost alone was noticeable. At one point I actually laughed out loud at how incredible the smoke was. For the first time I now realise that a dedicated Lakeland/Floral/Soap pipe is not just necessary for protecting other pipes from ghosting, but for enhancing the quality of such blends. Is this just me going mad or has anyone else found the same?
