Use & Care
Follow these guidelines to get the most from your Shire Pipe.
Pack your chosen cut firmly, and aim for a moderate amount of airflow - not too tightly, not too losely. You can check this by taking a few test puffs before lighting.
Using a circular motion, carefully apply a flame over the entire surface of the material in the pipe bowl, drawing gently on the mouthpiece. Tamp down, and re-light.
Take your time. Puff gently - inhaling fully is not necessary.
Tap or gently scrape out the bowl immediately after use. Clean your pipe frequently for the best flavor experience.
Over time, a carbon deposit ("cake") will build up inside the bowl. Do not allow this layer to get thicker than 1/16" (2mm), as it could damage the bowl. Use the provided poker multi-tool to gently remove any excess carbon.
Use the included pipe cleaners to clear any build-up from the stem. Use isopropyl alcohol - not water - on a cotton swab to deal with particularly stubborn tar. Unless you are displaying it, store your pipe with the bowl facing down to allow any excess moisture to evaporate.
