An online tobacconists I have bought a few things from has been kind enough to send me 3 Service meerschaum pipes they are selling off cheap as they are slightly shop soiled. As well as the fine hand made pipes, I've also impressed with the close fitting cases.
Does anyone know how these cases are made? As meerschaum pipes are often individual, it seems that each case needs to be just as individual. At most, one case design might fit a few pipes. I hope someone can educate me on how the go about making them?

If I remember correctly, there is a video on YouTube showing the process. They are individually made, fitted to the specific pipe.

Thanks Chubbster - although I didn't manage to find it, I did come across this interesting video on making the pipes themselves. I guess I'll have to keep searching.

And this rather strange video which includes the mining process.
