Each year, Missouri Meerschaum collaborates with American blending house Cornell & Diehl to create special corn cob tobacco pipes, elevated by distinctive designs and high-quality acrylic stems. Moreover, they pay homage to C&D’s Carolinian roots, with this Charles Towne Landing piece offering a unique version of the Charles Towne Cobbler shape of years past.
Located in Charleston, Charles Towne Landing is the birthplace of South Carolina, an historic site where English settlers first made ground in 1620.
As a corn cob pipe, the Charles Towne Landing shares the shame bowl and overall design as the Charles Towne Cobbler, but with a darkened hardwood shank that evokes the aesthetic of bamboo in line with Missouri Meerschaum and Cornell & Diehl’s Southport Ferryman and Salem Woodsman pipes.
It’s all finished up with an elegant metal accent and comfortable acrylic mouthpiece for a corn cob pipe that’s equally rustic and distinguished.
Due to the nature of the corn cobs themselves, you may notice some chipping on the top edge of your pipe. This is perfectly normal and won’t in any way affect the way your pipe smokes. The chips only add to the charm and character of your corn cob pipe. Enjoy!
