Got a new pipe in a few days ago.  I had pretty high expectations for it. These were met and then some.

A Missouri Meerschaum Charles Towne Cobbler Cob.  There’s a mouthful.  Something about it being done in cahoots with Cornell & Diehl. Whatever.  Very, very nicely crafted. Everything straight and tight. The stem is what really makes it. Lucite. The perfect bend to hang effortlessly while puttering.  Lovely draw, nice and open.  Smokes like only a Cob can.  Wonderful.  

You know...if there were only ever cobs to use to make Pipes...no briar or maple or Morta or olivewood, or real meerschaum, etc. we’d actually be just fine, IMHO.

My first smoke was with a bowl full of Straus Sleepy Hollow.  A new blend for me and very highly recommended. Spice (nutmeg) and sweet dark bread aromas.  Pretty wonderful.

Be all that as it may...this Cob is likely the ideal combination of design and materials.  The result is, to my mind, perfection.  I’ve had lots of cobs over the years. My last favorite was the Natural. A great pipe in many regards. This Charles Towne Cobbler surpasses it.

It’s $25 plus shipping. It’s likely the greatest bargain in the entire world.

I've only had one cob and that was pretty recent (within the last month). After about the 3rd or so smoke out of it I noticed a nice big Crack along the bowl, was quite dissapointed. Will order another one soon as I'm sure, after everything I read about MM cobs, that mine was a fluke.

What model was it? There are cobs...and then there cobs. I think the ones with heavier sidewalls (usually about $12 or so) might be more resistant to damage.

Yep, that Charles Towne Cobbler is a great pipe.  I agree with you about the stem making the pipe.  It's a great clencher!

I like it so much I just ordered a second one.  Who knows...some day I might wake up and discover I have one for each day of the week. Lucky seven.

Someone else here said they had seven of these.  I think it was seven...anyway, a whole passel of ‘em.


Anyway...I also took the opportunity to pick up a couple of blends from The Country Squire. Some “Second Breakfast” and “Old Toby” are on their way. That should add to the fun.

Yup. It really is a remarkable stem. And everything else is “right” as well.

I bought a Charles Town Cobbler and it’s a remarkable pipe. Most cobs feel very light in the hand. This one has briar-like heft and very nice balance. Haven’t smoked it yet. Just been admiring it.🤗

Wanna spruce them up a bit?  1. First sand the cobs lightly using  320 grit wet/dry sandpaper.

2. Then apply Fiebings saddle tan stain to the cob and shank ( I usually put a pipecleaner through the shank with a bend on the
end to keep it from falling out, and for hanging it up to dry. Make sure you wear gloves.

3. Make sure you apply an even coat to the cob and shank. You may want to stain it twice to make sure you have an even coat.

4. Let it dry for several hours (if tacky, let it dry longer)

5. Apply Dura Clear High Gloss Polyurethane Gloss Varnish.  Usually
2 coats.

6. Let dry for 3-4 hours to make sure it is dry to the touch.

They ARE beautiful. They also offer an alternative to what some folks seek in a Cob...the breathability of the Cob material. Some guys like that, some don’t, some don’t have a clue. MM does offer a few “naked” cobs here and there. Another option is always good.

And as long as I’m dipping into my cache of Febings bottles...I think green would be a great color. Why? I like green. It’s just that simple. Laughing

Well, polyurethane is essentially plastic. So you’re spray coating the bowls with high gloss plastic. Seems like that would be detrimental to respiration...etc.

I know you are right...still doesn't seem to affect the breathing of the pipe...maybe I'm too dense to notice, but I've been giving them a workout, with no deleterious effects so far.
The dura coat is applied with a brush...which should make it even worse than spray painting..what do I know?
