One of the most important aspects of pipe maintenance is reaming. Allowing the carbon in a pipe's chamber to expand too much (we would say more than a quarter of an inch thick) puts massive amounts of pressure and heat on the pipe itself. With this set of reamers from Castleford you can maintain your favorite pipe, keeping it in perfect smoking shape.

Had a Peterson I smoked the hell out of this summer and the cake build-up was too much for a pipe knife. I was a little hesitant to get this reamer over the full metal product but that hesitation was quickly dispersed. The reamer worked great and the handle is heavy-duty. Cleared the bowl by stepping up the size each time. The pipe is clean and smokes like new. A great tool to have for heavy pipers!
As a longtime pipe smoker, I use to use pipe reamers that will change the caliber of the bowl. This reamer is used properly straight-down without sequing the handle will not damage the bottom sides of the bowl. The reamer set will do just that and prevent excessive scrapping and keep the proper amount of carbon on the bottom of the bowl. This product will keep your pipe clean and ensure the longevity of your estate pipes.
The reamers work great the only problem is the T-handle it is weak it broke on the second time using it.
The product should have a metal handle. This makes the second time I've purchased and the second time the plastic handle has split. Never again.
It has so far worked on every pipe I own. I haven't tried it on my 320 EX, however, I think it will work on it with the large bit.
Anyone who likes to collect pipes should look into picking up this set.
This set of reamers is ideal. Solidly built plastic matrix with embedded steel blades. Four sizes: easily interchangeable with the handle. The range of reamers fits all pipes.
