The Eaton is the Natural version of the Pony Express, with its rough, plaster free finish. Complete with its barrel bowl, long hardwood shank and short saddle bit. While this may not be one of the most prestigious MM lines, it is a great small pipe and ideal for short “Cigarette” type smokes.
Corn cobs have a slightly bad reputation, they are seen as the disposable pipe. A cheap alternative to briar and therefore inferior too, but thats not fair at all. The Missouri Meerschaum pipes are made by hand, using specifically bread corn. The porous husk allows for a dryer smoke, absorbing the moisture and like Clay & Meerschaum smokes very cool. Unlike Briar and other wooden pipes, a carbon cake is not required. The first few smokes have a sweet, nutty taste but after that the pipe holds no background flavours and always gives a pure taste to the tobacco. Many blenders (our self's included) use Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipes to sample blends, for the neutral taste.

This is a great little cheap pipe, about the size of Popeye's, great for a short smoke, or for sampling new tobaccos, with all the dry smoking and lack of 'ghosting' you'd expect from a cob. I love it!
