Product Description

A large carving of a mans head with a large beard and traditional ottoman headdress. The large bowl houses a deep chamber and is set off with a dark red/black (tea) coloured acrylic stem.

Meerschaum can be found in various areas around Turkey, each deposit differs slightly in quality. These hand carved meerschaum pipes are cut from medium grade block meerschaum. While these might not be cut from the high purity Sarisu or Margi grades, these pipe will smoke and colour just as well over time. 

The porous nature of Meerschaum makes for a cool, dry and very clean smoke. Over time these pipes colour from yellow, orange, red, and amber with the smoke and nicotine the pipe absorbs. Due to this ability, Meerschaum pipes do not need breaking in and the cake (carbon build up) should be kept thin. Meerschaum is fragile, like any clay pipe and should be treated with care. If looked after these pipes will last not only years, but generations.

All of these pipes are one off's and totally handmade, so the one you see in the pictures, is the one you get! This pipe also comes with a hard case, protecting your pipe from knocks and for easy transport.
