I asked this yesterday in another thread, but it must have gone unnoticed, so here we go again in a new thread: My question: What is the difference between a pipe with a full Meerschaum bowl as opposed to just a Meerschaum lined bowl? Anything besides cosmetics? It seems that the full Meerschaums are more money (more material I assume). I cannot afford a full Meerschaum at the moment and the Meerschaum lined pipes are cheaper. I want to try Meerschaum soon. Should I just wait and save some more $$ for the full deal? Will I lose anything in the smoking experience by going lined only? Are Meerschaum lined pipes any good? Thanks in advance. Don "M"
