The Marcus from Missouri Meerschaum is a design that we originally made for promotional purposes for a tobacco company for marketing its pipe tobacco.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!
Length: 5 in/127 mm
Bowl Height: 1.875 in/47.625 mm
Chamber Diameter: .75 in/19.05 mm
Chamber Depth: 1.25 in/31.75 mm

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)
