Great conversation with Phil. And, I really enjoyed Phil's "favorite story" of smoking his new Lee Von Erck pipe, while Lee smoked a MM gift from Phil. As for old MM cobs, I showed Phil a pipe I've owned and smoked since the late 1960s, at the Chicago Show a few years ago. He even took a picture of it. It was in regular rotation, back in the day. I smoke it at least a few times a year. It's a little beat-up on the rim, but still a great smoke.
I hope everyone enjoyed Yo-Yo Ma playing Bach as much as I did. How can one not?
Thanks again for a fun show, and stay well,
Dino
Really enjoyed this show. The Pipe Parts segment was interesting if a little confusing. I just put the tins up as I get them. Screwing around with mason jars is just a pain.

Phil, Pat, and family are just fine people to be associated with. I even smoke a MM pipe several times a year in honor of them. I am amazed at how much innovation they have introduced to as tired a concept as the Missouri Meerschaum is.

Yo Yo Ma didn't do it for me. He sounded like a guy playing a cello with a dull saw.
Always enjoy hearing from Phil, thank you for the great interview. I have never decided on my "desert island" tobacco. But I know what my "desert island" pipe is. If the ship is going down and I have one chance to grab a pipe before jumping into the lifeboat- I am taking my Missouri Meerschaum Legend!
I've only become a 'serious' pipe smoker in the last 6 yrs and I started with a MM Legend from Wal Green's. It is still in my regular rotation and hardly ever gets a day's rest. I do use a variety of stems in it now'a'days.
I've got a bunch of MM cobs and all provide pleasurable use and I've even bought a few estate cobs for their uniqueness. One has what appears to be a factory made bamboo shank, and another is about Eaton sized, bent, with a diamond shank, quality plastic saddle stem and wooden insert at the bottom, oh and a nickel band!
One thing Americans can be proud of is the corn cob pipe.
