They look interesting, but I don't see dimensions anywhere. How big is the bowl?

(edit) I found it -- the larger one has a 5/8-inch diameter bowl, and the smaller has a 9/16-inch diameter. Most MM cob pipes have a 3/4-inch bowl. The smaller MM pipes have a 0.61-inch bowl (approximately 5/8) so these cobs are small.

No idea. Couldn't find them anywhere. Looking from the picture of the guy smoking it, it seems like an average size bowl.

Think I'll stick with Missouri Meerschaum when I want to smoke a cob.
Me too, and MM's are a much better value. These are very basic pipes (naked, and not finished in any way) for quite a bit more than a typical MM corn cob pipe ($8.95, and $15.95 respectively).

I honestly am not sure I really see the draw.

Interesting for sure but I'm not a fan of the round bit, I'll probably just stick with my MM for now. Thanks for the link.

I ordered two pipes from them and had them on my desk 48 hours later (the intervening day being January 1.). So that's good service in anybody's book. The pipes were as advertised in terms of size and workmanship. And here's the main point: they deliver a great smoke! I've tried them out with several varieties of tobacco and let me tell you--these pipes really deliver the goods. You won't be unhappy with the way they smoke--it's a short smoke, but a good one.
I note that some people are having problems with the bamboo stems. Don't be afraid – try them out. I subconsciously found myself clenching from time to time, and as long as you're not using your incisors, the pipes work. And if you have to take your pipe out of your mouth from time to time and hold it in your hand, that's not so bad either.
Taste, price and convenience all converge in this nifty little pipe. All in all, this is a pipe that I would highly recommend.

I would buy one if I didn't have to pay shipping. Hopefully they will make it to the east coast pipe shows this year.

I'm always down for a new cob! These look cool too. Thanks for the link. And the review. I think I'll order both pipes they offer and try them for myself.

There's no doubt they're a good smoke. They're cobs! Cobs are great smokers. I'm going to stick with MM's though. MM offers the same thing at a better value, and a much larger selection. Larger bowls too.

How short a smoke would you say? I'm moving very soon and it'll be a 10 minute walk for me from home to work and I'm looking for small bowl pipes that would last about that long. I have tiny bowled clays and briars, but even something like MM Pony is easily 30 minutes.

If you want a 10-minute pipe, fill your pipe and when you get to work -- stop smoking. Problem solved. :)
