    I just wanted to share with everyone the churchwarden pipe that I put together from a Great Dane Egg (Bent) MM and a churchwarden stem by Walker Briar Works. I had a great time early this morning on the back porch smoking it with a mixture of DAN sweet vanilla honeydew and Prince Albert. I like to mellow out the aromatic tobaccos that I have with PA. Does anyone else find smoking churchwarden pipes especially relaxing and thought provoking?

    When the young lady was asked why she used a cigarette holder, she replied, "The doctor told me to keep away from tobacco."

    I suppose that joke could be applied to churchwarden pipes, too.

    Anyway, it's nice to keep the lighter well away from my beard.

    I have a cobwarden as well.
    And, I too enjoy my quiet time smoking a carefully chosen blend in it.
    Usually late evening, or in the wee hours of the morning.

    Yours looks very comfortable.
    Congratulations on your acquisition.

    That's sweet, thanks for sharing !!!

    There's just a neat allure to a churchwarden. Unfortunately I have yet to add one to my collection. Eh, maybe for Christmas.

    Are you kidding me, I am ALL over that! I have 5 with 2 more coming. That is a very sharp pipe, well done.

    Thanks, pipeinhand. I'm waiting for a Peterson rustic churchwarden - I hope it's here soon.

    I really enjoy the 2 CW's I have but there is a class to your cobwarden that mine do not possess.
    I almost bought a CW stem from Walkers about a year ago, looking at yours I'm thinking I should have!

    Sorry for the noob question, but do any of our sponsors sell "Forever Stems" for corn cobs?
    Not looking for a churchwarden stem but that is nice.

    @ lankfordjl...Now that is really sharp! I have a couple of MM Country Gentleman on the way and me thinks they will get fitted with Forever Stems. One will HAVE to become a cobwarden!

    @ spartan...You can order any of the Forever Stems directly from the manufacturer...here's the link:

    That pipe is damn nice looking. I have a handful of MM cobs myself and I love churchwardens. I may just have to pull the trigger on one of those stems. Beautiful pipe thanks for sharing.

    Very nice, I've been wanting to get a cobwarden myself

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Wow, i really like this idea. I just bought a grab bag of cobs and thanks to this thread i am considering making a cobwarden. I've also never heard of that site so i am drooling at all of the forever stem options in there.
    I wonder how the 6 1/2 bent churchwarden stem would look with a Patriot cob.

    I was just thinking how awesome a cob would be with a churchwarden stem, low and behold a search brings me right to what I am looking for. Gonna save up a little cash and try to get one of these stems ordered.
    I love this place!!!!!

    Cool creation...thinking of putting together one of my own in the near future. We were discussing almost the same thing on another thread and rothnh, shared another ready-made cobwarden source, Etsy.

    I have a Forever Stem from Walker Briar Works and will never again smoke a cob without it. There's no going back to the standard plastic stems once you get one!

    I have a well broken in Great Dane Egg. Time to hit up walker for that forever stem. My original plan was to make a warden when I bought it but when Uncle Arthur took everyone's money and bugged out, my stem went with him.

    Nope. Although as far as I know he's still living at the same place and he's appeared on facebook trying to sell pipes again. He also posts about 4 times a day on the Brass Goggles Steampunk forum. Here's his facebook account https://www.facebook.com/#!/arthur.slaughter.1?fref=ts
