    I'm about to place my first order for a Meer Pipe, from Altinok Pipe located in Turkey.
    I live in Canada and was wondering if there are any other Canadians (or non Canadians) that have purchased from them in the past.
    How was the experience? How long did it take to ship?

    Thx in advance!

    I have a number of Sinan's pipes, all excellent pieces. He's a great guy and his service is the best. My last one was a commission freehand and took about a week to arrive after it was finished. His packaging was solid, and we followed up afterward with a long, friendly conversation. Even though it's been a couple of years since my last purchase, (gotta remedy that!)I always get a Christmas greeting from him....good people!
    You will enjoy your new Meer...guaranteed!

    Thanks T!

    I just placed the order, now I'm really excited! Indeed, Sinan seems incredibly nice to deal with.

    I bought a pipe there not long ago and was very happy with the experience. Easy to deal with, excellent communication all the way and I love my meer too.

    Hey Gondar,

    Holy Mackerel, I just searched your post, it appears I've ordered the same pipe as you!!!
    I asked for a modification to the shank so it would be straight.. GOOD GRIEF!, Heheh, looks like you did the same thing :roflmao: :cheers:


    Very sweet pipe by the look of your pics, I'm curious, how heavy is it? Looks magnificent! :eek:hyeah:

    :eek:hyeah: It is not that heavy at all. I was surprised to find how light it is. It can even quite easily be clenched for a little while, not for very long though.

    I have only smoked it some five times, but every time I find stronger, and also additional flavours compared to my other pipes. The first smoke ghosted a bit with wax (I think) though, because I did not wipe it clean inside the bowl. No big problem though, still a great smoke.

    It took a while to arrive, but it was well worth the wait.

    Congreats on your score ... and on your excellent taste in pipes. :cheers:
