  • Has any one had any experience with AND Meerschaum pipes? Their web sight says they are carved from single block meerschaum, and their prices seem reasonable.

If you have to, for a deeper cleaning you may use a paper towel wetted with a 40%-50% alcohol solution to rub the chamber. Stronger alcohol may cause damage.
I don't understand what damage would be caused. No one can show me that alcohol damages the meer. This quote is from AND Meerschaum web site.

I can't speak to their current pipes, but the very first meer I purchased about 10 years ago is an AND. It is extremely heavy for a meer...much heavier than it should be imo.
My understanding is that is an indication of inferior quality meerschaum. The Baki's I have for example are much lighter and yet are larger than the AND.
Perhaps someone who has purchased from them more recently will reply.
