I did not have to do much to the pipe but a basic cleaning. There was quite a bit of cake in it, but it flaked out rather easy. Sandpaper easily removed what was left.The shank and stem was really clean and took little effort .
I gave stem a light sanding and cleaned up the metal tenon and stinger.
A rub down with mineral oil and quick inspection , she is ready for some buff and wax.
The pipe is a extremely fine smoker.
