    I find pipe smoking so relaxing that I often just stand outside, smoking my pipe, and contemplating things in the world around me. Often I find myself just studying the pipe that I am smoking, especially the pre-owned pipes. And that is what I was doing this morning when I noted that there is a good possibility that one can tell if a pre-owned pipe was smoked by a left or right handed person. Not that it makes any difference, but I am so easily entertained.

    Do you know how to tell?

    My voices are my friends. :confused:

    I do the same thing with my used/estate pipes. Too bad you can't run a Pipefax report to see what their smoking history is.:D

    Rim char will be heavier on the left rear of the pipe if you are right handed. That's my guess.
    Did I win?
