EZ-Clean Smoking Pipe

A pipe that is easy to get the tar out of.

Getting the tar out of one's pipe is messy and unnecessarily difficult. The reason for this is that the tar is thick and viscous and it's stuck in a skinny little tube.

I saw on TV how a South American blow-dart tube was made, and I thought, Aha!

Split the tube lengthwise, re-attach the two halves, and you have a two-section pipe stem which can be taken apart so that the tar can be easily scooped out.

The two halves could be held together by a dove tail joint.

Am I explaining this well enough?

       Yes, although I would be surprised if this want baked. [+] until proven otherwise.

       Clamshell (razorshell?) pipe, I quite like it - glossy walnut with elegantly inset miniature brass hinges - the tar itself might help maintain a close seal - which would be paramount for a successful and satisfying pipe action.
