Estate pipes? They are breeze to clean, reem and smoke. The first two pipes I bought were estate pipes. The best smoker I owned was an old, old Medico I picked up on eBay for under $10, smoked only once!
This is just how I do it....I soaked the stems in alcohol for a few hours using a pipe cleaner to get inside. Then I rinse them well with clean water and soak in a shot of whiskey. After cleaning the bowls I set them in a tray, using uncooked rice to hold them in place, and pour a shot of whiskey in each bowl and let them sit over night. If the bowls are really dirty you can add a certain kind of salt to it, you might have to google that one. I think I used brandy one time and red wine another without any problems.
If you want another pipe check out the Mr Brog pipes on eBay. They are made of pear, smoke great and cost less then $30 bucks. My warden was something like $28 delivered to my door. They get consistently good reviews.
My comments on the tobacco . . . I am a reformed smoker. After 45 yrs of smoking cigarettes, cigars and even a pipe I have managed to screw up my lungs worse than a GEM Micro"junk"omatic screw up my face!
I recommend that you all give up the stuff while you are young enough to avoid the consequences.
As for the booze, well, be careful guys not too much. I am not a reformed drinker. Never did much of it but do like the taste of a beer now and then. Like every couple days! Not more than one though.
