    Nice pipe! Love the tapering bowl volcano shape. You've got years of pleasure ahead of you watching it slowly evolve its colour.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the pictures - it's your pipe now. YOU own its soul. It's for you to say who can steal that now.

    Good question. Once I receive the pipe, will there be a way to tell?

    I wouldn't worry - there's colour there. It's just taking its time.

    Two ways. One if it is unused which this isn't. And the second is to moisten your finger and put it against the lining of the bowl. Block meer with quickly absorb the moisture, composite will not at all.

    Dab your tongue inside the bowl. Needs to be on a clean piece of meerschaum, not cake or general clag. If it sticks, it's Kosher.

    Haha that was the first way I was talking about but I wasn't going to suggest it with the possibility of getting tongue ash

    Are pipes female? Time, perhaps, for another thread with an in depth analysis. I'll see how bored I get...

    Could just be the photo; I know I've given up on posting photos of my meers, because the color I see "in real life" just doesn't seem to show up in photos. On the other hand, that could just be because it isn't there and I'm batshit crazy...

    Anyone here speak Spanish? Or another language that genderizes everything?

    (Note to spellcheck: of course 'genderizes' is a word; you think I'd just make up something like that?)

    It's feminine in French, but careful, because the word pipe has a double meaning in French

    Yes it does and I am reluctant to say I smoke a pipe in any language other than English.

    I have discovered this hidden difficulty it is terribly hard to get it to show right in a pic.

    Which clearly is spelled with an "s". Pip! Pip!
