Hey everyone!
New pipe smoker here just recently switching from cigarettes. After much research, I decided to start with a Missouri Meerschaum Washington. I’ve been smoking it for about two weeks now and am about to order some different tobaccos try try out and I’m thinking about getting another MM pipe to rotate in and give the other one a break every once in a while. I can’t seem to decide on a model so my question to you folks is, what are your favourite MM pipes and why??
Thanks!

Legend 5th avenue straight and morgan natural. Cheap with wider chambers and they smoke great. If I had to pick one I'd pick the morgan, it just smokes great. Just got a cobbit shire I'm excited to try as well though.
I also like the Old Dominion Richmond Cob, the chabmer is awesomely wide at .88, but the wood stems, frankly, suck ass. At least if you like to clench they do.
You should look into getting an affordable briar as well. I'd reccomend Savinelli (or their cheaper line Rossi).

The Natural Country Gentleman is my favorite, followed by the Natural Mark Twain. I like the shapes and the "Natural" bowls give me a cooler smoke.

I think it was the Great Dane Egg shape, But I haven’t seen one since I first purchased it. It was my first pipe and remains my favorite cob shape.

I’ve been thinking about the Morgan natural actually, seems like it would be a great pipe to keep in my truck. I’ve also had the freehand in my cart several times because I love the shape but it seems a little big.

I don't think I could choose just one, I don't often smoke my cobs but I like to have variety. My cobbits are great smokes but I usually reach for either the Carolina Gent or the Missouri Pride when I'm reaching for a cob. I really like the Bully I got not too long ago as well but since it was a limited edition no longer in stock I don't think that'll help you much.

Top right column. Not much different in size from the General.

I'd cast my votes for the Mark Twain and the Country Gentleman, in that order. Straight or bent, though I give a slight preference to straight.
Cheers,
Chili

I have the Shire Cobbit and the Missouri Pride cob, and I like both of those a lot.
But my favorite is not a cob, it's the Ozark Mountain Hardwood. I just love the feel of it, the smaller bowl, and how it smokes.

Also, if someone hasn't told you about the "forever" stems yet, you should look into them. You could buy 4 new cobs for the price of one, but they are pretty cool.

I’ve got a Charles Town Cobbler it’s got a nice deep bowl great for English blends and the acrylic stem feels good in the mouth, I’ve also got an apple diplomat that is similar to the cobbler but a little shallower. My all time favorite though is the Legend, (I’m smoking it in my avatar pic) it just smokes so dang good. I primarily use it for my VA blends and it smokes super sweet and cool, I was actually just finishing a bowl of FVF in it before I started typing this...

I’ve got a straight bit filtered “General” that I light up a couple of times a week. It must be popular, because I just visited their web site and it said “out of stock!”

I don’t have all of MM’s pies, but I have a lot of them.

My favorite is the bent Rob Roy.

This is my favorite MM Carolina Gent. I swear you can do a heart transplant with this dangling from your mouth...
