Picked it up at a B&M over the Holidays.

It's real block, I trust the owner of the place. It also passed the "lick and stick" test... :D
Smokes nice, gonna be a keeper. Just wanted to try one out, didn't want fancy, at least just yet.

This thing is gonna be a daily for awhile to see how it turns out. I can tell some blends smoke better in it than others, never really saw that in a pipe before. I guess I thought it was an old wife's tail, see what you learn.

I thought this was a newborn named Mike or Maggie, and maybe cigars were in order. Never mind. Nice Meerschaum. I really like the simplicity; it should show off coloration well. Congrats.

My favorite blend in it so far is a local bulk blend. I will try a couple of my "name brand" tins and get back with you.
I will say I was not pleased with my beloved CH in it. I was really shocked, its my favorite in my cobs and even in my briars. But not in this little jewel. I'm not sure how that is going to work in the long haul, we shall see.

Nice! I like the look of the simpler meers just as much as the fancy ones. Last week I tried to buy a simple straight apple 9mm filter meer with some cool "dragon" scales carved in it, but Verified by Visa was not co-operating for some reason and I gave up. At the end of the day, I found a reason that I didn't want it anyway (scales carved into rim too, and the edges looked real thin), so I guess it was all for the better.

All Meers are cool. If they aren't fancy they are elegant. You got an elegant one. It is sure to color beautifully and become a favorite. congrats!

You'll have to ditch Photobucket, it's not letting your pictures show.
I use firefox, I downloaded the "fix" that allowed photbucket pic's to show, I have 100's of them.

I heard Chrome had a similar fix.
I didn't know that others couldn't see them, I thought the fix allowed them to show-up for everyone else also.

Photobucket breaks the Internet. Scoundrels. At the risk of sounding vindictive, I hope it backfires on them.
