I cleaned out the bowl of the Rossi custom pipe a moment ago. Used the CRKT Minimalist blade on it (a nice little knife), and then cleaned up the rest of the bowl with the shovel side of the pipe nail tool. I *was* looking to get an Old Timer pocket knife for such cleanups, but then I found the *perfect* tool on TobaccoPipes(.com), and even though it is pricey for what it is, I will still get it eventually and then cleanups will not be an issue any longer, I don’t think.
