Old German Clay: Markus Fohr Twine-Banded Churchwarden Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-557-0028

The flavor neutrality of clay pipes is well known; many tobacco blenders rely on clay pipes when they're tasting prospective leaf for that reason. This piece, by Markus Fohr of Old German Clay Pipes, hearkens back to the traditional Cutty shape that was readily prevalent in taverns centuries ago. The Egg-shaped bowl is canted forward, maintaining the form's iconic heel spur underneath and is paired to a lengthy, gracefully arching stem. When smoked, clay becomes extremely hot and with this in mind Fohr has wrapped the stem in a twine band, allowing this pipe to be comfortably held between the fingers.

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 Fantastic Piece of History

Product: Old German Clay Markus Fohr Twine-Banded Churchwarden
A big fan of clay pipes, this is one of OGC's best. The bowl is nice and deep, making of for a long cool smoke. While some don't find clay comfortable on the teeth, this isn't a clencher so it's not really an issue. Be careful, though, as it is a ver... Read More
First clay

Product: Old German Clay Markus Fohr Twine-Banded Churchwarden
My first clay, and what a wonderful clay it was-before I dropped it. It is indeed a touch fragile if dropped, mainly due to it being clay and also so long. I always mis estimate the dowl dimension listed, and I must say this had quite the bowl. The ... Read More

My go to pipe these days. I find myself ordering them more than I like because my cats keep throwing them off the table and breaking the stems.
First Churchwarden/Clay

Product: Old German Clay Markus Fohr Twine-Banded Churchwarden
This is my 1st Clay pipe and 1st Churchwarden. Relatively inexpensive, it does indeed let one taste the tobacco better than in a briar. It seems pretty fragile, but with proper care promises many enjoyable pipefuls.
