Old German Clay: Markus Fohr Ship of the Line Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-557-0020

Known for their neutral smoking qualities, clay pipes are used by blenders when testing new leaf and new blends. Briar is a wonderful material for pipes, but it adds a flavor of its own, one that most of us appreciate, but we all have occasion for tasting a tobacco in the purest form we can render. When we want that neutral medium, we can find no one able to boast the experience of Markus Fohr, whose family has been hand pressing clay pipes for multiple generations. Fohr still uses molds of brass and iron that are over 200 years old, utilizing the famous clay of his region in Germany, clay that has a worldwide reputation for its use in fine pottery. It's also excellent for pipes, like the Ship of the Line example presented here, with the image of a tall, three-masted ship of a bygone era. Remember to wet the mouthpiece of your clay before smoking it, with water or whatever beverage most suits you, to avoid the initial tendency of clay to adhere to one's lips.

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.

A lot of people are often surprised by the tiny size of this pipe, and to them I say CHECK THE DIMENSIONS. The weight is wrong, but everything else is correct. If you're looking for a pipe for a long, thoughtful smoke, this is not it. But if you want... Read More

Product: Old German Clay Markus Fohr Ship of the Line
I'm dumbfounded. The number don't do this one justice. On paper she's a tad shorter in length than my favorite Rob Roy. In real life this thing looks like a dolls toy and the pictures make one assume the spur on the bottom is a pair of feet no no no ... Read More
