Took my new bowl for a spin last night with some Regents Flake.

Several firsts going one here. This is my first Falcon and my first Meer.

Pleasantly surprised. ūüĎć

I'm still learning my briar bowl Falcon, but out of curiosity, where did you find the bowl?

"White Pearl Meerschaum" on Ebay. I believe I found out about them here on the forum a couple of weeks ago when I began to look.

It took about 2 weeks to arrive straight from Turkey. So far I'm very pleased. It was one with a larger chamber than most and cost about $50

I wanted to find a relatively inexpensive way to try out a meerschaum. All in, including the aluminum stem from SP, the whole set-up was about $75

4Noggins.com sells Falcon Meerschaum bowls for those living in the US.

I looked at those and liked them, but the chambers were smaller than what I was able to get.

If you typically smoke a pipe with a regular sized chamber, those are great options.

I’ll play along. Here’s my desk set with a rack I made which holds a couple more more bowls in the back. They are fun for sure, must have 20 or so of various vintages.

Nice!

Off topic: I couldn't help but notice the Lovecraft book in the background. Have you by chance been able to watch any of of Lovecraft Country on HBOMax? If not, it's quite good. I am a couple of episodes behind but I'm liking it so far.
