Missouri Meerschaum: Mark Twain Straight

Product Number: 002-543-0015

We can't make claims as to its 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.

Note: While all of our other pipes are photographed individually, these are not, and you may expect some reasonable cosmetic variation between the example we've photographed and the pipe you've received.

Product: Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain Straight
A much more substantial feel in hand and a better thermal absorption than my other cobs. I've just bought two more so that I can give my older one a rest every now and then. Even with 40+ briar, morta, and meerschaum pipes in my collection; I find my... Read More
Not my favorite cob.

Product: Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain Straight
I will say that my particular Mark Twain is easily the best example of drilling and shank placement of all of the cobs I own. Flat bottom, no gaps on either side, draft hole perfectly centered and running straight along the bottom of the bowl. That s... Read More
