    Took some time to try and figure out how to store my pipes, realized I might have enough Missouri Meerschaum products for the time being. Not many compared to a lot of guys on here, I know.... But still, I've only been at this for two months!

    In case you didn't notice, I like the Polished Morgan. The Country Gent is great too!

    May I suggest a Great Dane and a Poker. By far two of my favorites.

    Yeah... you may need more cobs... if you feel you do.

    I heartily recommend the Mark Twain, if you ever do buy more. That deep bowl with a super-thick wall is just magical. I never thought anything could nudge the Country Gentleman out of first place, but the Twain did it.

    A man who serves his country is a patriot. A man who serves his government is an employee. The two are not always the same thing.

    Sounds like more cobs are needed. I love these durable, flexible pipes!

    Oh, don't worry, I'll get more at some point. Probably sooner than I intend to.

    The Twain you say? I do love a thick-walled pipe.

    Nice start

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Experts agree: more cobs needed! This also helps with smoking delicious tobacco.

    Nice collection. I agree on the Mark Twain. It has taken over for the country gent for me as well. Also the Dagner Poker by MM is a great smoker. I find myself smoking my cobs more often than my briars these days. Except Sundays which are generally reserved for my Castello.

    Mark Twain and a Cobbit are not optional.

    Really? As you can see, I have neither. I'll remedy that next time I'm feeling frisky and find myself on SP.C.

    Also the Dagner Poker by MM is a great smoker

    I love the look of those things, very cool pipes!

    You need more bent cobs.

    The reverse calabash and the Mark Twain are the most smoked, but I love them all. Even have a cob cigar that's a great smoker.

    +1 for Cobbits.

    Add the General for folding & stuffing flakes. I have one for each blend type.

    Cobs are the ultimate on-the-go pipe. I smoke one every night when Im walking the dog. Rain or shine. Yours are better than mine. I have the bag o' seconds from MM.

    You can never have enough cobs. I have 50 cobs and half of them have Natural bowls. I find that the Natural bowls smoke cooler.

    I would go to Klondike Bar lengths to get a reverse calabash cob pipe.

    Very nice! Now you need one of their big freehands and maybe a general for big bowls of burley blends. Just broke in a MM with a Forever stem on Veterans Day with a bowl of PC Log Cabin.

    + whatever on the Mark Twain. Get a Freehand "bit" for it. I like the Great Danes and Washingtons as well. When Old Log Cabin Pipe Works gets it back in gear, get some "Forever Stems" to upgrade. They informed me that they will soon be back in action. I really beat on my cobs, and they take it well.
