Over the years Missouri Meerschaum has had some big customers and for one the corn cob was part of his image. General Douglas MacArthur was Chief of Staff at the United States Army throughout the 1930s. The MacArther Corn Cobs was produced for the General and to his specifications around this time. To this day Missouri Meerschaum continue to turn these pipes by hand, very tall with a long birch wood shank and filterless mouthpiece.
Smooth, varnished finish with a curved stem. A little harder wearing compared to the natural model.
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.
