I am rather new to pipe smoking and have been smoking a MM corn cob pipe to learn with. Through this forum I was sent three very nice briar pipes, for which I am very thankful and also excited. I am looking forward to learning how to care for and maintain these pipes, while also enjoying smoking them. I am reading up on how to break in a briar pipe as this is new to me. I am open to any advice or links you can give me to care for, clean, break in, and enjoy these new to me pipes.
