I keep thinking a bag of smokable seconds might be a good idea...I'm just not much of a gambler!

Nice lot brother - enjoy the wasp myself.

My Favorite shape was the Egg...but I think those are only being continued in the cobbit series

@elbert, a bag of seconds are the way to go. At 3.00$ per Pipe you can't beat the price. My seconds are my knock around pipes. And are the ones I smoke the OTCs. Most of the ones above I use for Flake.

@theedibeticman, I do enjoy my Wasp. I have a couple of the acorn shape I got as a seconds.

Very nice collection... Love cob's, they take a beating and I don't have to worry about replacing a much more expensive pipe. I do however enjoy kicking back with my Wizard filled with some Gaslight ... mmmmm... seems to be getting better too.

elbert, not much of a gamble. They're always 'smokable'. Nothing better than a bag 'o cobs for $30.00.

Alright, alright! You've convinced me. I'll order when I get home, and let you know what turns up. It'll be nice to have a few lying around unsmoked--might convince a friend or two to give it a go!
Edit; Order Placed!

Is the Mark Twain really bigger around than the Wizard?
Hokey pow that's a Big Cob... Probably as big around as the Freehand but only $10! I had no idea... I've been looking for a cob pretty much exactly like that since I started buying them but they don't give O.D. specs on the Missouri Meerschaum website...

Oh dear, I'm hyperventilating again.

Elbert, when you get the seconds, lay them out for a couple of days. Sometimes the finish isn't completely cured and they taste funny. A little bit of airing and they're right as rain.

The id of the Twain and the Wizard are close, the depth of the bowls are diffent. The Wizard is about 2.25". The Twain is about 1.50". Now the od of the Twain is larger. Look at the Elf and Shire Cobbits.
