    I smoked my first cob about a year ago, oddly enough. While I owned a cherry pipe once and used to have a meerschaum, it's been all briar all the time until I ran into the pipe forums online. My first cobs were a couple of Pride/Legends. (They seem to send you one or the other randomly, no...

    They haven't gotten here yet but my uncle is now buying directly from MM... He got me the Patriot and General, for only $12 and some change. He has a business on ebay and he thought to see if he could start buying straight from MM and I've even seen him talk to the lady on the phone who works...

    I have only smoked a pipe a hand full of times and actually don't own my own. I just haven't found one it like for a price I like that is why I am currently in the process of carving my own My question is I need a few cheep pipes that I and use to taste several tobaccos Cobs fit this bill...

    I've been enjoying the pipe more and more lately. I'm certainly still learning, though. I mostly smoke MM cobs. I've noticed that my General (the pipe I reach for most often) has begun "coloring", for lack of a better word. This pic makes it look darker than it actually is, but you can...

    I have a MM Legend and I love it. The first two smokes i left the filter in... Then i took it out. I noticed the draw is WAY looser. Is it because the pipe has broken in?

    I don't know how many cobs I have tossed over the years because the last bit of the bowl would get excessively moist and gurgly. I figgered that the cob had absorbed all the moisture it could and was done for. Since I started reading these forums I realized that this was not so. When I had...

    I was wondering, has anyone in this forum purchased from 'Forver stems'? If so... DO you think upgrading a MM cob with a $22-25 Lucite stem is particularly wise? I was thinking to purchase a church warden but i found that this site: Cobs & Stems can also custom fit my MM diplomat's stem into...

    Hadn't seen it mentioned in awhile but for those of us cob fans who would like a better stem on their Missouri Meerschaums you can't beat a Forever stem from Walker Briar Works 'Forever' Stems Here's mine a 2 3/4 straight tortoise on a general and a 4 3/4 bent on a pride. They create a very...

    The first pipe I bought when I decided to give pipes a try after a 35 year hiatus four months ago was MM Legend (bent) from our local B&M. I got along great with it and started picking up a few more pipes. The only thing I didn't like about the Legend was the mouthpiece. It wouldn't easily...

    I am very pleased win my recent eBay win of a set of, very hard to find, Wally Frank Corn Cob Pipes. The set came in it's original box and all are in mint, unsmoked Condition. All the pipes except the black one and the one on the top left have the first sticker under the bowl. The upper left Cob...

    Anyone smoke any mini CCs? I saw some at the B&M tonight, but wasn't sure if they're worth anything? Maybe for testing a new tobacco?

    Hey guys. I love smoking a cob every so often, but I've found if I'm not careful enough to keep the heat toned down it tastes a bit funny. Like the finish on it burning. Also, when I'm towards the bottom of the bowl it starts tasting a bit like.....burning corn cob (strangely enough). Do you...

    So I now have six cobs that I have been smoking in a random rotation and every single one of them is showing small hairline cracks to different degrees.. I even have cracks in one I barley smoke because the bowl is so small.. I have attempted to smoke slower and cooler and let them rest and...

    Smoking a bowl of FM ATP in an oil cured Wiley #44 poker. If only all briars were so light and so cool and smooth from the get go. Oil curing doers make a difference in the smoothness of the pipe's smoke from the very beginning.

    On Tuesday, Frenchy sent me out some corn cobs I ordered over the weekend. They arrived today. I ordered three cobs but Frenchy sent another one for free along with a nice collection of pipe cleaners and a czech tool. I had ordered pipe cleaners and a tool but these were different models...

    A lotta yiz know I send cobs to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan right? Well I just spoke to Missouri Meerrschaum and found out that they send lots and lotsa pipes to the troops and still they're more than willing to help me send more so they just gave me an extra discount on the Legends I...

    Can it be? I don't want to cause trouble or anything...but I do notice that I seem to get a more satisfying smoke from my cobs....every time. I'm breaking in a Peterson Irish Army 160 pipe at the moment, but it seems to be the same thing...over and over again. The Irish Army pipe is over $70...

    I wanted to share 2 of my recent acquisitions as I thought that they were a little different. So I was puttering around on my motorized bicycle down in the French Quarter. There are a couple cigar shops down there I had been meaning to check out and I wanted to take in the city a bit. Well I...

    For those who know I have been smoking a pipe now for about 2-3 weeks (might actually be longer, :r, cant quite remember.) I got myself a nice starter Briar pipe, but I also want to get a cob pipe or two. My problem, none of the shops around me sell them! I need to know where I can pick some of...
