The four old cob pipes arrived today, and look like they’ve been stored in a sealed time capsule, for at least 70 years, and maybe over a hundred.
It smokes great. Notice how simple a nickel cob pipe was made, completely natural cob, a tapered hole, a tapered end on a reed. a small hole drilled for the chamber. Capacity is small, maybe a gram and a half. They light easy and smoke without tamping.
