Interesting cobs this guy sells.  I bought one that had an antique-ish look to it, and am quite taken with it.  Looks like he burned it or something then used a dark shellac on it.  This one doesn't have that look, but it does have a bamboo shank, which is cool.  Before you object to the price, bear in mind that you are also getting an acrylic bit included.  No affiliation, etc., other than being a satisfied customer.

Actually, that's pretty cool. Worth $30-ish.

Cool

lol! I prefer to think of it as Variations on a Theme, by X--but have it your way.  Actually, I wouldn't mind Mencken's simple version, which I have surely posted elsewhere.  I almost have this memorized:

"The ideal corncob is made of a large, dense cob, and is cut so that the cross-section is almost a rectangle. There is no varnish on it, or anything else to destroy its porosity. The stem is of cherry-wood. Such a pipe has merit. It absorbs all the acrid fumes contained in tobacco smoke, it is always cool, and even the stem has a pleasant softness and an even more pleasant taste..."

(By "rectangle" he means the side profile, as opposed to the barrel shape.)

Pretty nifty look'en pipe if I do say so myself.  Wink
Still a bit stiff of a price as far as I'm concerned for a stem with a corncob on the end of it.  Suspect

That is pretty handsome for a cob, to be honest. The mouthpiece looks like a walker briar works bit to me. Which is most of the price tag itself, I'd say. I don't own any bamboo stemmed pipes personally. I could see that one being an interesting piece to own. Probably smokes well to boot being a cob. Reminds me of the "ultimate" corn cob pipes put together by a Canadian cobfooler, R. Santia. (Not sure you would call him a pipe maker for that)
