I just got back from a trip to Turkey. For all of us pipe smokers, we all know what that means, right? Yep, I went meerschaum hunting. After a couple of aborted attempts by our package tour guide to get me to buy a pipe from over priced shops, I managed to find this monster in a little booth in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar: Dimensions: Length: approx. 7 inches Bowl height: approx. 2 1/2 inches Bowl depth: approx. 2 inches Bowl diameter (inside rim): approx. 7/8 inches Bowl diameter (outside rim): approx. 1 3/8 inches It seems to be a bit old, so there were a few small dings and chips, and unfortunately didn't come with a case (the shop wasn't a pipe shop, so no accessories), but I loved the design so much I just had to get it. After being told an initial price of $50, I managed to haggle it down to half the price, so I'm very happy! Can't wait to try it out!
