How not to burn it!

The following is the transcript of a pamphlet the late Achille Savinelli had produced many years ago as a guide on how not to burn a pipe.

“Dear Sir,

A major problem among pipe smokers seems to be how to avoid burning your pipe, and the most widely accepted solution is to take slow puffs and to slow down even further if the pipe gets too hot. But how can the pipe smoker – a novice perhaps -recognize when his pipe is too hot? The bowl of a lit pipe is always hot, and to establish exactly what temperature ‘too hot’ is without appropriate instruments is somewhat difficult. I resolved the problem in the following way:

The idea suggested itself to me from a visit I made to a mechanic to whom I had taken a car the transmission box of which tended to get ‘too hot’. ”Look”, he said, “all you have to do is put your hand on it and count slowly to six. If you can do this, then it is not ‘too hot’, but if you have to remove your hand, it means that something is wrong and you should stop the motor at once.”

The suggestion worked well and I thought of applying it to my pipes. I suggested it to a friend who had burnt several pipes by too fierce drawing. He belongs moreover to that category of pipe smokers which some called “smokers with armor-plated tongues”‘ meaning that what burns first is not the briar, but the tongue.

So here now is the mechanic’s system as applied to the pipe. When a pipe is being broken in, clasp it firmly with your hand from time to time and count slowly up to six. If you can do this, then carry on smoking in peace. If not, then stop until the pipe cools down sufficiently for you to continue.

This is not a long operation. Five to ten seconds usually suffice, and you won’t even have to relight your pipe. And even if the pipe does go out, there is no harm done. Light it again. I would claim that many pipe burns are caused by smokers who, afraid that their pipe might go out, draw too often and too hard. It is better to use a few more matches or a little more gas than to burn your pipe.

Haven’t you noticed that old smokers in general are those who let their pipes go out more frequently? The more softly you smoke, the fresher – and you derive a greater satisfaction from it. If you adopt “the mechanic’s system”, I can assure you that you will never again burn a pipe.”

Yours,
Achille Savinelli
