My new Mesut Meer, Had to brag a little :groucho:
Very nice pipe, I could see owning one such as that giving the fact im ex Navy and the anchor does look like the Navy anchor lol. Anyway very nice buy, hope she treats you very well!!!!!!!!!! Happy smoking.
Most excellent. Post a pic in a year when she has some 'seasoning' showing.
Yup with that anchor I can see why you had to jump at it! Many happy years with the new pipe,
Best to all
Excellent carver, excellent pipe! :thumbsu:
I've seen alot of meerschaum pipes and 75% of them look to be a waste of meerschaum, yours does not.
VERY nice in deed! I think you'll have many good smokes with that one.
If nothing else it's a beauty to behold. :thumbsu:
Congrats!! That is a sweet looking pipe!! Beale.
That is an exceptionally seaworthy piece of pipage! Well found.
I've had a few Mesut meers in the past...got the last one from SMS meerschaum. They were all quality pieces, both in design and engineering. This one should be no different.
If it's a new pipe, something you need to do before smoking it. Ream out the bowl with a damp paper towel to remove any residual meer-dust...there's usually a light film left inside. Dampen a pipe cleaner and run it through both the stem and shank...same reason.
This pipe "should" have the smaller two-piece connector. First time you dis-assemble it, turn the stem to the left...see if it unscrews from the shank. If it does, only turn it to the right to assemble and dis-assemble, while pulling on the stem, after that....PUSH/PULL STRAIGHT OUT. Unscrewing the connector from the shank will over time, wear out the carved threads in the meerschaum....not a good thing.
You may find the draw to be a bit tight. This is normal with these connectors. they "can" be opened a bit, but you stand a good chance of just wrecking the connector.
Over the years, I've learned to adjust my pack and smoking cadence to accommodate this. A bit of a pain at first, but soon it will become second nature.
After all this, I hope I haven't turned you off from these pipes....they truly are wonderful pipes. Smoke in good health!
WARNING NOOBIE MOMENT
Wow, thankyou, I'm glad you said something, I thought the nylon piece was one piece and after reading your post... and re-reading it I took the buggar apart... :yikes: and then my other meer (SMS) Wow ... Thank you again!
