Missouri Meerschaum: The Marcus
Product Number: 002-543-0037
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, "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 seems to take its cues from the "Mark Twain Straight," being a deep-chambered straight Dublin, only finished with a dark stain and adorned with a chrome accent band for a touch of flash.
