    The first is a Big Ben Pacific 202 make in Holland. Super nice clean pipe. Best pipe I have ever bought for the price. 10 bucks.

    The second is a Thompson Meer, which Ted told me is an African Meer made on the Isle of Mann. It is a block meerschaum. I can tell the coloring is actually a stain.

    Well, just smoked the Meer. It is an awesome pipe, especially since I got it for 20 bucks. I lit with a match and smoked it all the way to the bottom with no relight. Drought hole is perfect size. Good weight for clinching, as this is what I mostly do. Can't type well without clinching. I am very satisfied. OT said they made great pipes, he was right.

    Knew you would like the meerschaum! Cared for, Manx meers are well worth the price, and will not fail to deliver a stellar smoke..

    I am really pleased with the pipe T-bear. It will be in my full rotation that is for sure. I have had a lot of hit or misses on the bay, this is definitely a hit.
