How do I remove a 1939 stove pipe from my stairwell?

I am in the process of remodeling my stairwell and came upon the venting pipe for the old stove (the house was built in 1939). I would like to remove it, but noticed the inside of the galvanized pipe is coated in a a cement like substance. Is there a risk of asbestos or can I hammer away at will? ;)

That could be asbestos. You need to get it checked before you tear into it.
