    My Fellow Pipe Smokers

    A dear friend of mine got this for me as a Christmas present. Suffice to say, he's now my best friend. :) This is my first Meerschaum, and boy it does smoke nice!!!

    Very nice!

    What kind of connector does it use? Nylon screw or a delrin push-pull like a briar?

    Looks somewhat like the Yanik reverse claw that was gifted to me a couple of years back. VERY nice!!
    I found the screw fittings to be a bit restrictive, but you can *carefully* open them by using drill bits...by hand...
    Find the size that fits, then move up going in 1/32" increments. Don't get too thin! It won't be perfect, but it'll be better.
