    Ebay, no brand. Hand-carved in Turkey. It's my only real meerschaum pipe.

    It's been a long time, my namesake from the other side of the world. Hope all is well!

    I could be just as pretty if I just wore a little makeup.

    Remember this one from up the page a bit?



    My favorite (okay, my only) meerschaum came back from the shop today with a nice new stem and a FAR better connector.





    The fit is PERFECT, snugger than I could have imagined, whereas before it was a bit on the wobbly side. As a bonus, a fluffy pipe cleaner now runs clear through to the bowl with ease. I'm about to go out and give it some Royal Yacht - I've been waiting weeks to smoke some. The meer is looking a bit dry - see if this will bring a little color back to it.

    Many thanks to Ronni at NightOwl Pipeworks (plug: http://www.nightowlpipeworks.com/home/index.html )

    I'm happy!
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    I certainly do. Its appearance has been missed.

    Looks like a nylon liner for the mortice and a stainless steel tenon. I bullied a mate into doing a similar job for me on a briar with a broken tenon and I've had absolutley no trouble with it.

    I like the new stem you've specified. I'm not a fan of those ones with turned ornamentation on them - too "Danish".

    I'm about to go out and give it some Royal Yacht - I've been waiting weeks to smoke some. The meer is looking a bit dry - see if this will bring a little color back to it.
    Maybe give it a little bit of wax. I've been feeding one of mine (it was dry for years) and the difference is astounding.

    Enjoy!!

    The smooth billiard on the right is a favorite of mine, I've been smoking it with Capstan Blue lately...


    This one is just gorgeous though. I love filling it with Grousemoor (if I had any) but it tends to smoke very wet. Might have to send it away to Terry's link so it can get a better fitting.


    Both pipes belonged to my grandfather and were passed on to me when I took up pipe smoking.
