How have I missed a meerschaum soulmate on here???? I must be getting slow in my old age!
Werll if you missed my intro DM, I come from a LONG line of men who smoke Meerschaum and Porcelain Regiment Pipes. I own very little in the way of Briar (At Thanksgiving I pulled a briar years ago and my uncle asked me why I brought firewood to a smoking session), especially after the PURGE of 2010!
Granger, any other carvers impress you? I'm becoming quite enamored of Cevher's work lately. And Baglan - my biggest conversation piece is his rendition of the puppet from the Saw series of movies. He nailed it! Scary mofo!
Have you posted a pic? That sounds fun. The kind of pipe you smoke in the park...as long as you aren't in New York...to scare people
As I said I like Yanik and have one, Mesut has some out there that are attractive. I have seen the pipes by Medet Kara that I like as well.
The only work by Cevher I have seen is on the Baki site, but they are nice.
One of the reasons I have gravitated towards Altinok lately is because I can order 9mm filter pipes, which are a preference. I do own two Baki Pipes and I love them. My regular rotation is now set at Some IMPs, some Altinoks, my BC Calabsash, and one of my Baki Pipes.
There is a Baki Rhodesian up that I am having to stop myself from ordering...it is simple, elegant, and gorgeous!
