I was just recently over looking at Altinokpipes.com for a meerschaum pipe. I've thought long and hard about what I want to have in my collection someday, and I don't think my collection would be complete without a meerschaum pipe of some sort residing within. I'm not entirely sold on the idea of puffing from the back of someones head though. I went over to that site and checked out their wares and though a lot of them seem to be sold from every category, they had a lot of nice pipes. They even make a nice variation of the Lee Van Cleef pipe, which I must say, for any western movie fan would be a nice addition. They also make a few other designs that I would love to own:



Just curious if anyone else has had and experience buying a pipe from them and and what the quality of the pipes are like.

I have one Tekin bought here and another is Altinay from Pipeshop.ru,very pleased with both of them,although I rarely smoke them but only with stronger blends,since in my opinion meerchums smoke so cool and mild I have hard time to taste the tobacco

All good to know. I was thinking about hitting them up for something soon. Don't really have much experience with a meer, but I figured, what the hell. I like a lot of what they have to offer. Thanks for the opinions, I will certainly take them into account before I buy.

At first, I was a bit apprehensive concerning about having meerchaum pipes but today I have completely changed my mind, they just need little bit different approach, but yes, I'd suggest them to anybody for experienced smokers and newbies alike.
