AKB Meerschaum: Carved Coloring Bowl
Product Number: 002-574-5078
While meerschaum is naturally inclined to develop a patina as it's smoked, it doesn't always darken evenly across the stummel. AKB offers this coloring bowl to better distribute the smoke, and thus the resulting patina. Fitted with a cork liner, the base of the coloring bowl inserts into the pipe's chamber. By packing the coloring bowl with tobacco, it essentially turns the pipe into a Calabash, and the smoke flows evenly throughout to ensure a consistent patina. With a slight flare toward the rim, this particular one showcases a lovely latticework carving — a finish commonly seen on meerschaum pipes.-Truett Smith
