The Remnant!

When we were growing up, our father enjoyed smoking a pipe.  Often times, when finished smoking, he would either rap the inverted pipe on a hard surface or use his knife to remove the dottle before loading it up again with fresh tobacco.

dottle, or dottel

dot-l \, noun;

the plug of half-smoked tobacco in the bottom of a pipe after smoking.
