Meerschaum Pipe (Pirate)
Meerschaum (transl. "Sea Foam") is a rare mineral mostly found in Turkey. It has a light and porous structure which, when used to make pipes, keeps the smoke cool and soft. The pipe itself becomes a natural filter which absorbs nicotine. Due to this property, Meerschaum pipes slowly change their colour to different tones of gold and dark brown over the years. The longer a pipe is used, the more valuable it becomes due to the colour change. Today many old rare Meerschaums have found a permanent place in museums and private collections.
These pipes are made of high quality Eskisehir Meerschaum which is known to be amongst the finest available. Unlike Briar, Meerschaum does not burn. Meerschaum pipes do not need pre-smoking to have a good quality performance. You can get perfect satisfaction from the very first smoke.
Meerschaum is damaged by water & cleaning products and should only be cleaned with a dry or damp cloth.
In addition to our range of Mini Meerschaum Pipes, we now stock four of the most popular designs in a larger size. These pipes give you the classic Meerschaum smoke with a longer, thicker stem to draw on.
Our Selection of Meerschaum Pipes are all approximately 22-24cm long.
