Well I got my new Diplomat today. I noticed that on this cob MM has a block of wood in bottom? I am guessing this to be normal for the Diplomat?

My question is this. I wonder why this is not done on their other pricier Cobs? Beale.

Not sure why some do and some don't. My Gent doesn't seem to have one, but my General does, and they were the same price. It's supposed to prevent burn-through, but I doubt I'll burn the bottom out of either one, given where the stem meets the bowl.

Diplomat, Patriot, Freehand, Dane Egg & Spool, and some of the older MM's Milleniums and some Presentation grades. The wood bottom gives a sense of security but as long as you just smoke the cob and don't try to take it's virginity with the poker, the soft-tails do just fine. I like 'em both. Some pipers say the soft-tails smoke better than the hard-tails.......... overall, I do too but I like them all. :)
