Missouri Meerschaum: Mark Twain Bent (6mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-543-0016

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.

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.

Very Nice Smoke

Never had a real Missouri Mersham before, and they cost little, so I got a couple of these. A surprisingly good smoke with the filter model. I find myself smoking these more than my expensive pipes.

The Dublin shape of the bent Mark Twain is great for flake, ribbon, any cut. I really enjoy fold & stuff when outside working, fishing, ect. I love my AKB Meers, but these pipes are very similar! You get a nice neutral smoke and resistant to ghos... Read More

When they discontinued The Marcus I was gutted! Sadly, this is the only true Dublin that M.M. is making at this time. I find the bowl needlessly wide and bulky, and this makes it impossible to clench it comfortably; it's too heavy. An unpolished opti... Read More

The stem is garbage. I swapped the stem to the “danish” style stems. Other than that, I love corn cob pipes; and out of the 5 cob styles I own, this is my favorite shape. It smokes perfectly every dang time. Matter of fact, I smoke this exact shape e... Read More
Mark Twain Meerschaum

Product: Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain Bent (6mm)
I bought a couple of these for knock-around pipes since they are inexpensive. Bought more because they smoked so well. They won't last as long as a good briar, but they perform excellent.
Almost love it.

Provides an outstanding smoke, and a lot of folks on the Facebook pipe groups I frequent love 'em. The one I received gets too hot to hold very quickly. I'm going to get a couple more though because like I said, it's such a comfortable inhale.
