Turkish Estates: SMS Meerschaum Lion (with Case)
Product Number: 004-653-4551
If you're a timid pipe smoker like me, you probably don't pour tobacco onto a real lion's head and try to light it. Wait, maybe that sentiment is common sense rather than timidity; I get them mixed up. Either way, I've not tried lighting a real lion but suspect the results would be disappointing as far as a relaxing smoke is concerned, considering all the running and shrieking and soiling oneself (as you have surmised, I'm not talking about the lion here). Luckily, we have talented artisans in Turkey who can make meerschaum lions for us to light, like this snarling beast with fangs but no claws.- Chuck Stanion
