    I've got two favorites, an Altinok and an IMP. You can find new IMP on eBay from a good dealer there who is probably associated with the manufacturers, who don't sell directly to the public. Otherwise, smokingpipes.com has a range.

    My Altinok is the same as the one displayed on this page: Altinok Pipes® - AG128 AutoGraph 128

    Altinok pipes are great, at least the Autograph series. Some of the cheaper models require you to upgrade for a higher quality stem, which seems like it's worth it to me. Frankly, I'd recommend selecting from the "ready pipes" if you want to get your pipe soon, Altinok also does made to order, but it takes quite a lot of time, sometimes longer than predicted. From the reviews I've read, most people are happy with these two brands.

    Looks like a well-cherished pipe. I notice that they go brown unevenly, usually dark near the stem, like yours.

    I have 2 IMPs. Both are excellent quality craftsmanship and smoke well. The one is a XXL full bent Bulldog, I doubt I will ever get it completely color just because of it's size. I think I may need the Russian army's help.

    Mine is from the Peterson Sherlock Holmes series, the Baker Street bulldog. Peterson meers have the best plumbing I have seen on these pipes.

    An old Straight Pot of medium size. A no-name second probably originally carved as a Barling on the Isle of Man. My first meerschaum from over 30 years ago and still in regular use (with a long gap.)

    I have been wanting to get a meerschaum, do you guys recommend any meerschaum makers or websites that sell them?

    I've only got one meer, a no-name I got from Marty Pulver many moons ago. Long story, and two beeswax baths later, it's pretty blotchy when cool. But check out how it turns to butterscotch with a little (well, actually a big bowl) Royal Yacht in today's mighty fine pipe weather:



    You can actually smell the beeswax in the "room" note - nice. Not bad for about $45.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Same meer smoked on the commute home today - again with Royal Yacht. The rim becomes translucent when heated (see second shot below), and the sides were almost oozing beeswax -




    If you've never pampered your meerschaum with a fresh bath of wax, give it a shot.
