I have added my first meerschaum pipe to the collection.  This latticed bent bulldog with sterling silver mount was made to order by Huseyin Cor in Turkey, after I received some stellar feedback from some fellow pipers about the quality of his work.  The draw is wide open, which is contrary to my previous experience with meerschaum pipes.  I've just put my first bowl down, and I'm very satisfied with the smoking experience.  This little baby comes in at 4.5 inches, and weighs 42 g.  Thought I'd share a picture with the brothers and sisters here on B.O.B.

Sweet smokes,

BB

I will certainly take that recommendation into consideration and run with it. I'm looking forward to trying a number of different blends in this thing. It's my understanding that meerschaum doesn't carry a ghost the way Briar does, and gives a truer flavor. Hopefully this will make a great vehicle for tasting lots of different things.

I agree. A meer does wonders for English blends.

Guess I'm late to the party but I must say that is a fine looking pipe!
