    had a mail back 'Yes no problem', a phone number and ring after 15:00

    a pipe cleaner soaked in Grant's down each bore came out clean, so we were good to go and what a cool dry smoke from a pipe weighing exactly 1oz.

    The Jima is an interesting pipe.

    It uses a coil spring to collect moisture and filter the Tar.
    The filter is removed by one of 2 methods, depending on the style of Jima you own.
    The first is the double O-ring style, and the second is the threaded double O-ring.
    Since old tar tend to bind them up, treat them both as threaded, and turn the airway cover to loosen, or unscrew.
    Then pull the airway cover to the rear, and tip the bowl end down.
    The airway cover should be able to be removed forward under the bowl, and you will find the spring inside it.

    The most bizarre thing about them is their bowls.
    The bowl is not meant to be removed and is a fragile porous porcelain that chips easily.
    I have only seen one NOS replacement bowl liner ever on ebay, and the price was $50.:eek:

    They do smoke pretty good though, but I still like my Falcons.

    Now some Jima Porn
