I just discovered that I live about 5 miles away from the man that owns and operates Meerschaum Market. The huge online retailer of top notch Meerschaum pipes. I messaged him about a Mesut and IMP Meer I was looking at... we got talking... learned we are neighbors... and now I am going over to his house / office to see the pipes in person. I'm in Delaware, not Turkey ;-)

Vegas Baby!!!
Simon (condorlover) had him clone an old Devil Anse and some others. I purchased the clone and I know that Weezel owns some.
Sounds like a good thing all around.

Bagrham or something like that is his name I think?I met the big boss of IMP at the Columbus pipe show and we talked a bit about him...

It will be easier to show your wife this amazing new meerschaum you found at the flea market for $15 than trying to pull off the same story when a USPS box is involved hahaha

My lady has become pretty smart about pipes. She was by my side when I met Massimo of Musico and Pierre Blatter. She knows too much ;-) She gets more annoyed at how many paper towels I use in a day than she does about what pipes cost.

...and that's just the thing. I don't think I have a paper towel problem. She expects me to get through an entire meal with one of those half-sheets! Come on man! I need at least three!
Anyway, I am going to see some meers today at 5pm.
If you recall, I sell a beautiful Meerschaum about every 6 months. I buy one and I never set it ablaze. I can never bring myself to get it dirty. My rule is, if I don't light it within 6 months, I sell it. It's like a self-imposed punishment. I have sold the last 3 bakis I bought. I have sold two IMP's and a WGM also. The only meer I smoke is my old one.
I plan to change this. I am coming home with a meer this afternoon and I am filling it within an hour with Royal Yacht or Uhle's Crushed White Burley and I'm smoking it.

Man, I can sense a disturbance in the Force: you are going to spend a lot of money in the near future. :nana:
