Hey all, I had a chance & wanted to post about a breakthrough I've had over the last week. A year ago, I bought this unbelievably beautiful Savenelli (http://pipesandcigars.com/satrpiru602b.html) but haven't been able to get a cake on it at all. I smoked the snot out of it and hated every minute...everything tasted awful in this pipe. I was on the verge of getting rid of the pipe when I remembered someone on this forum talking about the honey method (dab a lil' honey inside the bowl, allow to dry & smoke per usual). So I tried it, and presto...I have an amazing smoking pipe. In one week's time. It works, it really really works! Maybe I need another Savenelli...up till now I'd been thinking I'd got a bum pipe 'cause of this one's refusal to play nice with me. Anyway, thanks PSF.
