Missouri Pride Corn Cob Pipe
- Product Review (submitted on December 3, 2016):
- I ordered this particular model since it's the 'Pride' of the whole collection here on Missouri Meerschaum. I'm a bit of a heavy smoker, so I tend to look for the cheapest way to get everything I want out of an item. I was told a cob smoked great, and was light. Since I'm a clencher I don't really want to put a lot of money in a pipe I know I'll either marr too badly to sell, or chew the bits off. I wanted something for traveling, since I stress smoke in my car, and this is a perfect fit. Light, stays lit in high winds, and even with me aggressively puffing at it: doesn't smoke hot. I will say the bit is on the thin side, and I'll be replacing it in the coming months, but the bowl and shank are flawless. The naked finish is really nice in the hand, unlike the cobs I had held in my brick and mortar shop. I also removed the filter and the only negative is that I'll occasionally pull bits of charred tobacco in my mouth which is no flaw in the pipe itself. My tobaccos are much more flavorful and enjoyable in this pipe, and it delivers a stronger hit of nicotine than any of my other pipes. I will definitely be back for other models, and when I burn this baby out, I'll order another Pride so I can keep proselytizing my present company about the wonders of Missouri Meerschaum.
