Re: New Baki Meerschaum

Not really, they actually smoke cooler. The issue with Meerschaum is that it's about as tough as a block of billiard chalk, and can break or chip if dropped. Otherwise Quality Block Meerschaum makes outstanding pipes.

Stay away from the pressed stuff!!!!!

Re: New Baki Meerschaum

Nice pipes, guys.

Just an update. One week of patina on the Baki.
Thanks for looking,
Wayne

Wow! I was never a fan of the 'plain polished' type meershaums, but yours is gorgeous!

Also, that's GREAT news that they discolour that quickly! I've got a meerschaum ( photos here ) coming to me in the mail, but always thought the pictures of those that had browned were from heavy pipe smokers after years of use.

So it browns that quickly eh!? Great! (or have you just been using it 24/7 since you got it? )

Re: New Baki Meerschaum

Hey Jake,
I smoke that Baki Pipe 5-10 times a day and will continue to do so for the next few months.
I would love to see it color up like one of his own pipes. Check this one out.

THAT used to be WHITE !? Wow. Gives such an incentive to keep smoking

Looks like I'll have to get a 2nd meer - one that has a plain polished bowl. Because with all the intricate designs mine has there's no way for that natural patterning in the mineral to show up. Oh well, excuse to buy another pipe.
