Missouri Meerschaum: Cornell & Diehl Kingston Judge Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-543-0069
The third installment of the wildly popular collaboration between boutique pipe tobacco blending house Cornell & Diehl and Missouri Meerschaum, the Kingston Judge presents an elevated take on the traditional workhorse corn cob pipe.
Designed by Jeremy Reeves, Head Blender of C&D, and Phil Morgan, General Manager of Missouri Meerschaum, the Kingston Judge is inspired by Kingston, South Carolina — the original name for the city of Conway. Kingston (originally "Kings Town") was founded in 1732 by English colonists and is among the oldest towns in South Carolina. It's located along the Waccamaw river, just 20 miles from Cornell & Diehl, and is home to the historic Old Horry County Courthouse, known today as Conway City Hall. Part of the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the old courthouse was built between 1824 and 1825 and was designed by South Carolina architect Robert Mills, who also designed the Washington Monument. Aptly named, Missouri Meerschaum's Kingston Judge honors this historic courthouse and the old town of Kingston.
As a pipe, the Kingston Judge presents a gavel-like profile, with the shank meeting the smooth-sanded bowl at a raised transition. Said bowl bears two beadlines below the rim for a stately disposition, and the shank end furthers that elegance with a flashy metal band. Of particular note is the stem, which is crafted from durable, high-quality acrylic with a cumberland pattern, making for a long-lasting corn cob pipe that lacks nothing in the way of eye-catching appeal and historic significance.
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.
