New Burnt Meerschaum Pipe

3317aI got a new burnt meerschaum pipe. I thought you might like to look at the finish. I got it from AAA

I’ve been thinking about buying something from AAA for some time. I like the way they give all the pipe dimensions, including depth. I bought a lovely Peterson once. The picture looked great, but there were no listed dimensions. The problem was, when the pipe came, it was dinky. I’d say I could put my pinky in the bowl, and I couldn’t fit my whole nail only in there. I know some people like that sort of thing, but it wasn’t what I was going for.

I’m very happy with the pipe. It’s got an interesting finish. I’ve never owned a burnt meerschaum. It’s got a lot of fudge room for me to mess up, but not show horrible disfigurement. Although, as you might imagine, I have already managed to drop it once. This is from the same guy who managed to set his fingers on fire before, so don’t act surprised.

The pipe is already coloring nicely, good fit on the stem, just all around nice. I know there are fancier meerschaums (duh), but I wanted something simple I wouldn’t have to feel guilty about actually smoking.

Anyway, I hope you like it. Well, actually, I don’t care if you like it or not, but I do, and that’s all that’s important.

Oh, and new gravatar!

This is not a pipe.

Looks like shit at 36×36, but it looks very nice at 80×80.
