I recently bought another meerschaum pipe. It's big. It's almost a beast. The thing, originally from Hayim Pinhas in Turkey, measures in at 21" long with a bowl just over 3" tall. The bowl is carved in the figure of D'Artagnan from the Three Musketeers. It's unsmoked right now, but I plan on trying it out this weekend. http://bratta.imgur.com/dartagnan_saxophone_meerschaum I'll go ahead and beat you all to the punch with jokes about over-compensation. It's a fair cop.
