Special Note on Bi-color and Beech-Horn pipes
The aluminum band on the pipe is fixed to the clay stem and should not be removed.
The horn stem can be removed to clean the pipe and is the only part of the pipe that can be detached.
In the case of the beech-horn stem, the beech and horn parts are one piece and should not be separated. The entire beech-horn section can be detached from the pipe for cleaning.
