I find a little sebum (ie. natural grease) from the side of my nose works wonders in removing such marks. It is the only polish I ever need for my pipes :D

I really like the search facility. Saves me asking questions which have already been answered. And I was about to seek advice on these mouthpieces. It seems that members are divided evenly between the "with" and "without" options. This tells me that I will have to try it out for myself and see which way I will go.

Back in my smoking times (just to remind you - these will restart on Monday) I remember holding the pipe in my hand between the puffs so it may well be that for straight models I will not use them but will probably fit them to bent ones which will be more likely to stay in my mouth.

Oh, the joys of speculating before actually trying it!

In any case - these are cheap items so buying them will not ruin me :)

Isaac your welcome for the slow pitch you knocked that one out of the Park old boy : lol:

I didn't use to harm bits with my teeth but do now; I've put softies on all my 25 pipes and have gotten to the point that I not only don't hate them but in fact love them. They make clenching easier for me.
Pipe smoking: the most cultivated taking of tobacco; a good friend and a sublime addiction; but give me a cigar, too. But so expensive: smoke up and smoke less.

For those who enjoy corn cob pipes but, like me, can't justify the price of replacement stems, the rubber mouthpiece is a cheap, interchangeable alternative ;)

I really don't like the extra thickness they add to a stem, but with that said I do have 2 pipes with extra thin stems that I use them on as I am afraid that they may be so thin as to be damaged without the soft bit added . G'Day Sir.

Kevin , Here replacement bits for regular cobs bent or straight are only 50 cent each + shipping of course, so if you need some, I am sure there could be a exchange made with me or anyone you like here at the forum , you could either buy them and pay whatever shipping there is or you could swap someone a bit of tobacco for half a dozen to a dozen or how ever many you wanted.There may still be more cost than you want to invest , I just figured if you swap for at least a dozen you should be set & not have to worry about cob bits for quiet some time. G'Day Sir.

I've found some recent rubber bits just not worth the price I've paid. I ordered a small bulk bag of them from a UK dealer and found that they bite through in no time at all, so that I can feel the mouthpiece underneath and the bits themselves tear very easily. As I don't believe my teeth are that sharp, I can only put it down to the inferior, in my opinion, material that the bits are made of. I won't be ordering any more of this particular bit brand.
