Thread: Corn Cob Pipe with 'Forever Stem'

  1. #1

    Default Corn Cob Pipe with 'Forever Stem'

    I can't not believe what I was missing, I tried my pipe yesterday (a General) with SG Chocolat Flake and today with Frog Norton, results: Delicious!


    Kudos to Walker Briar Works!

    So did I sir, so did I...

    ... so one day I grew some cojones and I finally told SWMBO that it was a $30.00 Corn Cob with the FS or a $300.00 + new L'anatra....at the end, I secretly ordered the CC to my office, it's a miracle I still alive.

    I've been pleased with my dealings with Walker.
    God loves you so much, that he made you read this, just to let you know.

    Looks nice. I have been putting off getting one (or 2 ) for my cobs for awhile. I'm sure that wider bit feels more natural between the teeth. Did it seem to add any weight?

    Probably, however it's the most balanced CC of my collection.

    Yup, it is true, I received their newsletter stating just the same, I'll be ordering a nose warmer for the strolls around the park this time of the year.

    Which model will you be picking up? I love my MM cob and I've been eyeing these beauties for a while. I really like the Washington and the General...Guess I'll have to buy both!

    Well dang if I hadn't just bought one pipe & have a second pending payment then I would jump on this.

    ....Okay, I'l be honest: I just bought one pipe & have a second pending payment but I would TOTALLY jump on this if I thought SWMBO wouldn't hurt me.

    Great to know about the shipping. Looks like I'll be buying my first cob pipe this weekend! Anyone have any suggestions or is it mostly just one of those things where you buy what you like?

    IMO, just buy what you like. Either way, corn cobs don't cost much. Do you have a CVS drug store? That is where I picked up my Missouri Meerschaum

    I vote for Dane Spool with a stem anywhere from 2 5/8" to 3 1/2 is my vote. Personally bent preferred ;~)

    Good information to know, thanks! After reviewing their pipes I came across another question. Is there any difference in a banded vs non-banded MM cob pipe or is it just cosmetics preference?

    No there is no difference. Walkers takes standard Missouri Meerschaum cobs and adds their own stems, and puts the bands on some of them.
