    I was checking out meers this morning with no intention of buying one when I came across this one. It is from a Turkish seller. It's new so I bid on it and picked it up for next to nothing. I enjoy having one of a kind stuff and I'm certain that this is one of a kind. It is a bit odd though. lol Check it out.

    Certainly unique! I like the eearthiness of the clay, gives it character. I also like the stem color. It is certainly a FULL BENT! I know you like those. Enjoy!

    Thanks guys:) I'm guessing, due to the lack of responses, that most people would rather say nothing than say something negative. lol

    I like it. I think it will turn out to be an excellent smoker.

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

    I hope they gave you a discount for all the dirt on your brand new meer...

    That's not dirt, it's the stone it was carved from. It will all eventually have color as I smoke from it. I just got a jump start on the transformation:)

    Looks like the meer equivalent of leaving the rough plateau on a briar. I like it. Are the rough patches beeswaxed too?

    That's a sharp looking pipe Shawn. I have seen a few with some untouched block left on them and thought it was really neat. Love the lattice work! Very nice!

    Hmm, I was wondering if it was unfinished block. It's an interesting idea to make it look like the pipe is mid-carving like that. That pipe isn't necessarily my cup of tea, but I like the concept. Plus, it's not my pipe. It's yours and sounds like you are excited about it, which is cool!

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
