Hi all, a question on meerschaum-lined pipes. After reading about all the advantages of meerschaum pipes, I was wondering whether a meerschaum-lined pipe will have the same (or similar) characteristics, especially the unique ability to not "hold the ghost". I have an English-made meerschaum-lined pipe (pics available in my "My Pipe Collection" post, My link). I'm hoping I'll be able to use it as my sampling pipe for new tobaccos if it behaves the same way as a regular meerschaum pipe. Or will I have to get another pipe? Also, am I correct that I'm going to have to clean this one the same way as a meerschaum pipe (wiping the inside of the bowl after smoking)?
