Very nice! Nautical, not the usual run of the mill carvings seen so often. And, it's bent. Very good taste! Enjoy!

Thank you! I’ve wanted a Meer for a while, nothing really spoke to me though, but as soon as I saw this one, I had to have it! I know Meers take forever to color, but seeing as how this one has such thick walls, I assume it’s gonna take even longer. No worries though. It smokes great!

Treat yourself to a couple of quiet bowls each evening and it'll soon show color in the stem and the bottom of the bowl. Then you can enjoy watching the process.
If I'd seen that pipe in a shop I'd be smoking it now. Trust me.

Very fine. May I ask what she weighs? I am looking for a pipe for a Christmas present and the smoker likes his pipes under 35 grams. I am sure that's considerably more, but worth it!

I’m not sure what it weighs... it wasn’t an available stat and I don’t have a scale. I will say though it’s a big pipe, not really a clencher.
Here’s a size comparison

Beautiful pipe! I've been wanting a meer for a while now. One day, I'll run across the perfect one for me.
Good luck in the search! I hear the first one is the banana peel for more!
