AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Bent Apple (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-2611
Meerschaum pipes have been made almost exclusively in Turkey since the 1970s, when the Turkish government banned the exportation of the mineral, the finest of which is found in the Eskişehir region of that country. In this AKB example, rather than dressing the stummel in a detailed carving that's commonly seen among meers, a modern Apple shape has been rendered, smooth and shapely in hand and simply paired to a jet-black acrylic stem.- Chuck Stanion
