    After waiting for 2 years and 8 months. I finally received my Butera Bekler Meer this month. According to Mike it was a collab between Ismet Bekler and himself. Mike created 5 designs in briar and sent them to Bekler for conversion. He had to get special permission from the Turkish government to stamp his name along with Mr. Bekler's. I am quite lucky to get one of the Butera Bekler Collab pipes.

    I hope you enjoy as well.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    That is just lovely and may I be the first to congratulate you on your wonderful new acquisition. It is so nice to see a meerschaum without strange flower patterns carved into the shank or some overly elaborate dude with a lobotomy that is only cured by stuffing tobacco into the void. That is a lovely, clean, uncluttered and functional pipe. You have made my day chum!

    That's a HEALTHY sized bowl. I think the question everyone wants to ask..

    What's the inaugural smoke?

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    +1 Condor/Pipe Monk. I think many of the meers of today lack the elegance of those of yesteryear.

    Excellent pipe! CAO referred to smooth meers as "aristocratic," and Bekler was a master of mirror-smooth carving. That's a nice shape, too. I'll bet it will smoke as well, if not better, than it looks, being Butera AND Bekler.
