Yeah that’s a great choice for a great pipe. I think yellow might be my favorite.I could not decide which colour would be best so I took 3 stems since my neighbour is going to Turkey and can bring the pipe without need to pay extra taxes. If the package would be sent to Finland it goes through customs.
It’s African meer, made by the Manx/Laxey Pipe factory on the Isle of Man. It’s dyed, as were all Manx pipes.
I love my African meer Pete's also made by Manx/Laxey, they dye em because African meer doesn't color no matter how much you smoke it. Your's is a very nice looking smooth example.Thanks Rustie! Its a good little smoker. Id use it more often but I tend to not reach for billiards. I use it as a travel pipe since it doesnt need to rest. It also takes up less space in a pipe bag compared to curved stems.
May as well be dyed for me. Id never put enough smokes to change the color.
