    I've been looking at Altinok for quite awhile. Finally after going back and forth between two of his models I decided to go with the double stem claw. I already have a claw but it is a low end meer. This was from the in stock selection so hopefully it won't take too long. Any Altinok fans out here?

    It's a kind of cob with a white, smooth finish.

    I am glad you asked that... I was wondering the same thing... so are these just modified MM cobs.. or something totally different ?

    I was being facetious, as was Moo. They are top of the line meerschaum pipes.

    They are beautiful to say the least. I will need to ask the wife for an increase to my monthly allowance. That should allow me to buy one in about twenty years. I don't get much of an allowance. :(

    I don't always smoke a meerschaum, but when I do, I prefer an Altinok......The Most Interesting Man In the World!

    Well my decision was largely based on the wonderful advice you gave me. Heck, I may even drink a Dr. Pepper with my first smoke lol.

    I had just gotten home from work and loosened my tie. Don't you think a man has a natural God-given right to loosen his tie and smoke his Altinok pipe when he gets home from work?
