As many of you know, I failed in my first attempt. Too many different variables and excuses to list.

This time should go much differently. I have a lot more experience with meers, and they are all I've been smoking for the past 3 or 4 months at this point. At the end of my last thread I had given up on meers altogether, thinking they weren't for me.

This is mainly just a thread to watch how this particular pipe colors, with little rest, and again to test my patience with only one pipe.

This thread comes at a particularly sad time for me with the loss of my friend and our forum member Weezell. He had bugged me during my Grabow thread about doing one with a meer, and he sent me my first and favorite meer to date. We had many messages back and forth, and phone calls. What a great guy. He will be missed dearly.

Anyhow, the pipe in question is an Altinay lattice bent billiard. I noticed the past few months how the price of meerschaums have gone up. Then I came across this one. Bent, carved lattice, and extremely light at 22g. I wondered how it could be sold so inexpensive. Well then it arrived, and it's one of the smallest pipes I own now. But this is all ok, as I prefer smaller pipes, bents are more comfortable, and carved pipes seem to color faster for me atleast.

First smoke, Cornell and Diehl: Old Joe Krantz Blue. I managed to keep it going for 30 minutes. Perfect amount for me.

Oh and my tamper fits, so that's a bonus!

Awesome pipe and it is kind of funny, only because when i bought my first meer i didn't pay attention to the size and it was pretty small, not saying you did that but i certainly did lol

May your friend's memory be a blessing.
Nope I only looked at the weight. 😂 Now I know how to get a pipe that light, you make em for babies! Lol

Good luck! This place is now Meer Eye For The Briar Guy!

Love my briars, but man the one Meer I have is a good one and I’ve been sucked into a Meer commission by all you enablers!!!!

All this talk of lighweight meers and I'm going to have to do some research. I prefer all of my pipes to be lightweight. Everytime I've looked at meers in the past they seem absolutely enormous for my preferences. In an effort to skirt that issue I bought a falcon with a meer bowl. It did not go well. Hot would be an absolute understatment.

Good luck on your endeavor.
