When cleaning the tube, hold it by the bowl, the only hint the ash from the bowl, before working a tube cleaner through the stem to get rid of moisture. Do not bang the tube against a wall or boot, as this can damage the bowl.
A small layer of carbon will slowly start to build up from the initial smoking , never let that layer to get more than 1:16 of an inch (1.5mm) thick or chance the dish cracking. To keep up this coating work with a pipe reamer or smokers knife, (NOT a penknife or directed object.)
Place the reamer then slowly turn to reel way surplus carbon.

Bring on the pipe ahead of light to ensure you can find no blockages.
