I have recently been contracted to do a big art project for my fathers new fiancée and her payment to me is a SMS Meerschaum Eagle Claw Pipe, now this will be my very first meer so i am VERY excited. But my question to all the meer smokers is, what do yall think of the SMS meer's, are they good smokers, a good brand with high quality meer? I have a feeling it will quickly become a favorite very fast, i have been in love with this pipe for a good long while, and i love the claw series. But any feed back would be awesome, thank you!!
