Czech Pipe Tool
Cup O Joes
It's a pipe tool, but at least it looks different than the Czech Tool I'm used to using. Just wanted something different that didn't cost a bunch of money for a simple task.
It works! 'Nuff said.
After a detailed analysis of the "Pipe Nail Standard" that I received in the mail several days after placing my order with Cup O' Joes, I have determined that contrary to its name, it would not be proper to use said item for anything plumbing related or as a nail in the construction trades, but instead would function well for use as an accessory with a Tobacco Pipe both to tamp ashes and to remove the charred bits of tobacco from the bottom of the pipe bowl. Shaped much like an actual nail with a major difference being instead of a pointed tip the "scraper" end is similar to an oval spoon convex on one side but flat on the side that would normally be concave. For the sake of clarity, what i mean by spoon is "A spoon is an eating utensil consisting of a small shallow bowl, oval or round, at the end of a handle." except in the case of the pipe nail the shallow bowl is filled in. After comparing the pipe nail to several hundred other objects in my house i am pretty confidant that it is constructed from Aluminium or aluminum (a chemical element with symbol Al and atomic number 13). It is a silvery-white, soft, nonmagnetic, ductile metal in the boron group, but i am no metallurgist so if this concerns you i am sure customer service could clarify. I didn't have time to weigh it or take detailed measurements of its length, height, width, circumference. etc due to refocusing on my bag of tapered pipe cleaners review.. perhaps i can post the vital statistics for standard pipe nail in a later post for those concerned about such details. Sincerely Ian Simpson PS. product seemed to work well.
Simple, very light weight. Works well for tamping and cleaning.
