    I love my MM Pride and finally, after many tries, was able to get a Hackert off of ebay this morning.
    At last glance there was one cob left...

    Can't wait to try it out...

    That last one just disappeared as I was mulling! :whistle:

    Does Jake make any custom cobs. I'm looking for one that is less than 5" long.

    I just placed an order with Jake. He does do custom orders. Send him a message through ebay and he will get back to you, but be ready for it to take a little while. He isn't the fastest at replyng. I ordered a bent general with an antler shank. I will post pics when I get it, but no idea when that might be. He said I am on the list but doesn't know when he will get to it. Hopefully it isn't too long.

    Gee, I have a bent General with an antler shank. I guess this means you have excellent taste. My congratulations to you!

    They are excellent because they have a hardwood bottom, a more durable shank (for the most part, depends on the material), they have, or eliminate the need for, a band to reinforce the end of the 'shank', and they usually have a vulcanite or equivalent stem...as opposed to the cheap plastic base equipment.

    A well mother nurtured cob(MM cobs, that is) with Jake's helping hand, makes for a quality, durable smoker. Is it the last, and only cob you'll ever need or want??? Eh, the jury is out. I have two Hackert's, and already desire a few extras.

    Congrats! My two Hackert antler-shank cobs have given me years of smoking pleasure. Yours will do likewise.

    Before one places an order, is there a website that showcases his work? :thankyou:

    Not that I know of. If you go on ebay though and do a search for "Hackert" and then click on "Completed Listings" you can see the pipes he sold recently on there to get an idea of what they look like. I just sent him a message telling him what I am looking for. Seems like most of his cobs are between $20 and $30. He also does briar pipes, but they obviously cost much more.


    I sa on ebay what looks to be a MM Freehand from him for $30. He told me he would charge me $25 for the general...should I change my order to a Freehand if it isn't too late? I just always hear about how great the freehands are, but also hear a lot of positives about the generals...decisions, decisions...

    Thank you, Brad! I checked them out. They all have a certain, simplistic charm about them.

    Well, my other Hackert is a Freehand. I wouldn't rock the boat, changing orders mid stream. Both are excellent pipes. I think the Freehand makes for a better flake pipe, but that doesn't make the General less appealing. The General actually isn't less of a flake pipe, it is just a smidge deeper, making packing flake more annoying...to me. It really shines as a gravity fill, ribbon cut pipe.

    These are personal hang ups, though. You are bound to be more than satisfied with whatever comes to your doorstep.

    Thanks so much. I will leave well enough along then :)


    I want to apoligize to the original poster for unintentionaly high-jacking the thread!

    As far as Jake's email. I just went to one of his auctions and clicked on the seller and sent a message, but his user name is jacob8706. Hope that helps. He doesn't accept new orders all the time, so if you want to place an order I wouldn't wait around too long.

    Does Mr. Hackert cobs have the stem protruding into the bowl like standard MM cobs. Not that i know if it makes a difference just a thought. :whistle:

    I wrote him last night and asked him if he could make me one. He wrote back today to tell me he's not accepting orders.
