Thank you from the newbie

From the looks of it, doesn't need to much except for what you said; a clean out.
It has such a nice existing finish just be careful you don't harm it with too much alcohol sloshing around.
Lots of good info in the restoration section, you just need some pipe cleaners & cotton swabs.

PG, that's a Grabow "Freehand", a nice big pipe.  Looks good, I agree...run a slightly saturated pipe cleaner through it, then a dry one.  Rub the stem down with a wash cloth and some good soapy water.  I'd not rub the outside of the stem with alcohol because if it's ABS plastic, it may turn a bit gray on you. There might be a used filter in the stem when you twist it out.  Throw that away.  You can smoke with or without the filter.  If you don't have any, I'll mail you a couple to try if you like.

Its a good one. The Grabow Freehands are great smokers. They smoke just fine without the filters by the way.

+1 I prefer to not use the filters, but they a good smokers either way.

I have filters but I don't use them. I find the draw on a Dr Grabow pipe just right without them. Less relights that way.
