    This pipe came in a lot that I recently purchased. It has no markings at all and I cant find anything on it. It is a pretty simple set up just a meerschaum bowl in a cork body, the lining does not come out and the reed stem is removable. It smokes about like a good cob but that is all I know. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Hmmm, I've actually seen one of those recently, but I cannot, for the life of me, remember where. Very intriguing tobacco cremation device!

    That is interesting. Ain't never seen nothing like it either. Maybe the philosophy is cork absorbs heat better. Who knows, you may have just become an elite member of the Cob Snob Society.

    OK, now that's one I haven't seen or would have ever thought of combining...But, heck if it works why not :)

    I suspect it works better than a meer pipe with a cork bowl would.

    I believe, my friend, that you are being quite optimistic about the burn time. lol

    That's the first time I've ever seen a pipe like that, thanks for posting the picture!

    I've never seen a pipe like that before. Cool score though, I never would have thought about a cork pipe of any sort!

    Nice, not fancy looking but as far as the choice of materials used you couldn't ask for more, I bet that cork stays pretty cool.

    That sounds like a great design for a pipe. I'm surprised we don't see more like that.
