Old Dominion: Laughing King Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-631-0002

Old Dominion pipes began with a nearly extinct heirloom Indian corn which brothers Bob and Bill Savage, and Laurel, the latter's wife, found to produce a particularly sweet, unique cornmeal. Bringing this breed back from the brink, and finding a healthy demand for it from amateur cooks and professional chefs alike, they also soon found themselves with a lot of large, colorful cobs piling up as well. Turning up archeological evidence that their Pungo Creek Mills farmland had been the site of a clay and cob pipe making operation dating back to the colonial period, an answer as to what to do with all these distinctive corn cobs presented itself.

That answer, of course, was to hand-craft them into sweet-smoking cobs fitted with bamboo cane stems - pipes just like those the planters who'd come before them had enjoyed over two centuries ago.

Note: All measurements listed are approximate, as there will be some variation from individual pipe to individual pipe.

I enjoy using cob's while on trips, or out hunting because they always smoke well and they wont break the bank (or my heart) if they get lost or broken. This was the first cob I have smoked from Old Dominion and I was very pleased. It is exceedingly ... Read More

What a pleasant surprise! This was a sweet, easy smoke right from the first light. I wasn’t sure about the reed stem, but it’s comfortable, and the draw is great. This isn’t competition for MM... it’s a completely different experience. The narrow cha... Read More

造型相当具有野趣,重量也适中。便宜耐用,抽吸白肋烟等口味清淡的烟草,还有爆米花的香气,很有趣味。然而,对于新手来说,燃烧性不好,干燥的斗丝尚好!一旦偏湿润的草,就需要不断地补火。 囤了一些,用来当做礼物送送朋友们把玩。

Was not sure what I’d get with this pipe, from the first light it was sweet, no burning off of any man made materials. This pipe smoked perfect from the first light. The stem, one you get used to it is actually more comfortable than a regular stem. I... Read More

Nice that they require little break-in period but unfortunately they don't hold up to any kind of clenching.
Loved it until it burnt out

UPDATE 2021: The new design manufactured by Missouri Meerschaum is now a 3/4" bore just like the Virginia Planter which makes it less than ideal for shags. I'm deducting stars for this. My original review is below. Terrific for shag. I could wish ... Read More

Smokes really easy, easy to hold in the mouth even with no mouthpiece. I would buy it again.
