Missouri Meerschaum: Mark Twain Straight

Product Number: 002-543-0015

We can't make claims as to it's veracity, but there's a story that Rudyard Kipling once visited Mark Twain at his summer house in Elmira, NY. While there Kipling was said to take Twain to task for smoking Turkish tobacco in a "lowly American corncob pipe." Twain was said to have replied that "this, sir, is not a corncob pipe. It is a 'Missouri Meerschaum.'"

Whether this story was true or not, we do know that Twain loved his cobs — and this Missouri Meerschaum cob, with room for a 6mm filter if that's your thing, is named in his honor.
