Marcus

Availability: In stock

$11.69

Quick Overview

The Marcus from Missouri Meerschaum is a design that we originally made for promotional purposes for a tobacco company for marketing its pipe tobacco. However, due to the new FDA regulations, the company decided to curtail its pipe tobacco business. Since we liked the design, we decided to keep it and make it available to everyone.

The Marcus has a Dublin-shaped bowl with a hardwood bottom and is stained dark for a burnished appearance. This bowl is similar to but smaller than our Mark Twain pipe, hence the name Marcus. To dress the pipe up, we placed a wide, nickel-plated band on the shank. The Marcus is a great smoking mid-sized pipe with a unique appearance!

Perfect Lunting companion Review by Leo

A few of the newer designs by MM have caused me to love straight pipes. I'm mostly a 'bent lover, but this Marcus is a joy to smoke, clinch, and go for a walk with. It is a perfect size for casual 1/2 hour or a bit more smoke. Also excellent for driving. I find it in my hand more often than I expected because it loads a very versatile timed amount of baccy. I throw less baccy away due to stopping a smoke short of finish due to my Marcus. The overall design is marvelous!

This might be the best all-around corn cob pipe ever! Review by Jeff

First off.....I have over a handful of different cob pipes that I smoke and enjoy. I have a General, Rob Roy Legend, Washington with bent stem, Diplomat 5th Avenue, and a Morgan. This Marcus pipe arrived in the mail last week and I've been busy breaking it in. And, it has quickly risen to the top of my favorites. I used to like the big style pipes in the past. Originally I thought I needed a General pipe because it seemed like such a substantial cob. But now, the more I smoke my pipes the more I'm finding that I prefer the smaller pipes in the MM line. There are two pipes that get ALL of my smoking time now.....they are the Morgan (LOVE that pipe!) and this Marcus.
The great things about the Marcus:
1.) The bowl is bigger than a Legend and not far under the Diplomat 5th Avenue. That means I can get a longer smoke without having a bulky pipe in my teeth. To me, it is the perfect smoke length.
2.) The fit and finish of the pipe is excellent. It feels good in the hand and feels good in the teeth. Just wish the bit could be a little beefier because I'm a chewer.
3.) The wider nickel plated band is classic.
4.) The darker stain is tasteful. I also love that the shaft is bare wood and not the painted on cob look of the Legend.
5.) Gives over a 30-35 minute smoke if I take my time and sip.
6.) Feels like a nice compromise between the Dagner and the Twain. Fits right in that gap.

I have ordered a couple more of these to keep on hand (in case they ever drop the line), as well as to give each pipe a rest in rotation. I'm sure you will love this pipe. I was surprised how fast it moved into my top 2 pipes. As I said, the Morgan is my other addiction.
A giant thank you to MM for such a great company (made in USA....awesome!) as well as fantastic customer service! (Posted on 11/21/2016)
