I was worried I’d loose my pipe street cred if I had rim darkening but I guess that’s not the case I’ve been smoking for several years but I’m still trying to learn all the ins and outs

That is the unique part of piping, there is no right or wrong. There are people that will chase unicorns, and there are people that will smoke Carter Hall only. Its all subjective. Some people want to keep there pipes looking like they were never smoked, some will take pride in them heavily smoked and caked. Piping is prob the most subjective hobby ever, just do what you like and smoke what you like, others opinions are useless to your experience. I still want to but in the Machine Made cigar thread, and def have some questions for those folks, being a hand rolled premium cigar guy though!

The codger thing is to do whatever floats your boat and not really care much about what other people think or do. I would claim that the people most concerned about preventing rimcake are more likely to sell the pipe at some point down the road. There is nothing wrong with this.

I was curious if Murphy’s would work does to damage the pipe or just clean it
I* will not damage the pipe, just clean it. When you apply it with a qtip wait until the foam starts bubbling and turning brown then wipe it off with a clean qtip, not a lot of pressure.
