Broken Meerschaum Lined Pipe

I was poking around the local antique mall and found a Peterson Meerschaum lined pipe with p-lip, and for about $20. Absolutely stoked, then I saw the crack in the meerchaum, from the heel to the rim, one big crack.

My question is first can this be repaired, I figure no.
Secound lets say i get this pipe can i just pull out the meerchaum liner and smoke it bare, or will the walls be to thin.

Thanks.

You can mud the pipe with cigar ash and honey and that should work, once some cake builds up your fine.

Try to haggle on the price too. Show the owner the crack and make sure it's clear to them that it isn't good for much until you go get it fixed.

Tell him it isn't good for anything, and that it can't be fixed. Say that you want to buy the pipe for parts.

Or you can be a nice guy.
