MM Makes Wooden Cobs?
Hard to believe but Missouri Meerschaum is now making their standard cob designes into hardwood pipes! This occured due to the drought which caused their supply of corn cobs to dwindle and their manufacturing of the larger ones to be cut in half. http://www.Aristocob.com has them on preorder right now, they are not yet available directly from MM's website http://www.corncobpipe.com. They are much higher in quality than the Ozark line of small hardwood pipes and are a bit more expensive than regular cobs.

The Ozark been around since Noah. The die hard cob puffers I know, to the man, eschew the MM Ozark. It'll be interesting to hear what people have to say about this new $14 hardwood pipe.
Looks like Mr. Brog has come competition now! I'll probabley get a straight apple to try.
It's a good looking pipe! Eric, please let us know your take on this new MM hardwood after smoking a few bowls, OK? Thanks!
By the time I get around to it rothnh, many people will have reviewed them already
I've had one in my collection for years and have never smoked it.. don't know why just never have.
Be without fear in the face of your enemies, be brave and upright so that God may love thee.
Speak the truth even if it leads to your death, and safeguard the helpless!
i was just on MM 's website and they are not there????
I'm blind too. Can't seem to find the ones you're talking about, just the Ozark pipes.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
they are not yet available directly from MM's website http://www.corncobpipe.com
You can only find them on http://www.Aristocob.com
right now under "Non-Cob Hardwood Pipes" for preorder. They are the 3 pipes for $13.97 below the Ozarks.
Ah, got it thanks. Yeah, those look sort of interesting. Might try one when they come out.
have one, smoke it...
1st few bowls are kinda rugged to get done. after that it settles down to a nice little smoke 1/2 way between a briar and a cob.
This is all very interesting. Like the video said, when the next corn cob crop comes in, and the company recovers, these pipes may very well be discontinued -- and that will make them collector's items, like the steel penny.

At $15, I don't imagine MM will have much trouble selling a lot of these. Cob lovers will want 'em, collectors will want 'em, cob smoking collectors will want a few, and the rest of us will want one to see what all the fuss is about.
Damn savvy marketing for MM to face a potential disaster with cob shortages and turn it around -- or at least mitigate the shortage and give them something new to make and sell in the meantime. Kudos!
They are also making amber colored versions of the more substantially thick "Danish" pipe bits.
Oh wow their going to color them! Ugh - I hope it stops at amber LOL.
The thicker stems sounds good though.
Not a bad idea with the drought problems they've been having. I happen to like the way the ozark Mountain hardwoods smoke, so I might give the new hardwoods a try too.

I love my cobs. This sounds like a bad idea.
I have pipes made out of wood allready. I go to MM for cobs, not immitation briars.

Rothnh, they make the black versions of the thicker stems already and will continue to make them They are my favs for the larger, heavier pipes. For smaller, lighter ones (Country Gentleman and below) I like to use their standard bits.
