    I have just acquired my first Corn Cob (eBay), a Missouri Meerchaum. It's a bit of a revelation, it smokes so well. I'm still very fond of my Falcons and a very hansom Barling I picked up a few months back.

    But this corn cob pipe is blooming marvellous, I'm sure it's no surprise to readers in the US. It smokes clean and cool, an real pleasure. So little money too but worth every penny. I was just looking for something from the same seller to ease the cost of p&p for the pipe cleaners I had ordered. I just clicked on it on the spur of the moment. I'm well chuffed...

    It's just our little way of saying "thanks for all the Dunhills." :)

    Pen, which MM did you get?

    Today, I picked up a "Pony Express". It'll suit me well, since most of my smokes are short.

    Thanks for all the comments, to the questions:

    I'm not sure of the model, the stem and mouthpiece is straight, the bole sides are parallel. The bowl is about 2 inches tall and less than half an inch below the stem. the mouthpiece is a yellow transparent plastic. The label on the bottom of the bowl reads: Missouri, original, corn cob, made in U.S.A. Meerschaum, Washington. MO.

    As for tobacco I'm still smoking "corner shop" brands, of these the one I like the most if St.Bruno ready rubbed. There is not a specialist tobacconist here in Portsmouth or if there is I have not found it. The online retailers work out expensive if you can only afford one pouch at a time. (don't forget how blooming expensive smoking is here in the UK)

    Chuffed is an word meaning happy/proud and has little to to do with trains and should never be confused with the northern word Chuff as this has a completely different meaning: "Tight as a gnat's chuff!" :)

    That's too bad! I have several friends in the UK and we use the term well refereing to our live steam locomotives! It was just a thought! Didn't know the rest of the population had a different meaning for, "Well Chuffed".

    Sounds like it might be a Legend. Great smoking pipe, and hopefully not your last. Congrats on your new purchase. I have a Legend and a Country Gentleman, and I think I like the Legend a little better.

    I don't know if you've tried these two places, but here's what I found on a quick Google search.
