Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain The Mark Twain is one of Missouri Meerschaum's premium with a large tapered bowl. Being a premium Corn Cob the base of the Mark Twain pipes have been plugged with a genuine hardwood insert and the pipe finished with an Italian Vulcanite mouthpiece.
Missouri Meerschaum The classic Corn Cob pipe made famous by Popeye. These pipes are not only great for any fancy dress party they can be smoked and with surprising results. They smoke fairly cool with a natural sweetness from the first light and are a fraction of the price of a good briar. Yes they are made from real corn cobs, which have been dried for up to 2 years. They are naturally porous, which allows the pipe to breath while smoking and need little breaking in. Budget Corn Cob pipes tend to be on their last legs after a few smokes but Missouri are the word leaders in Corn Cob pipes and each cob is cured for at least 2 years before being crafted into a pipe.
Natural vs Polished The natural finish is the more characterful and obvious corn cob style that we have grown to know and love. The polished version goes through a patented process of filling the corn with a plaster based substance before sealing them for a more durable pipe. The polished will last longer than the natural.
