MBSD Meerschaum Deluxe Bent Egg Block Meerschaum Pipe, Briar-Mortise [SOLD]

Out of stock


At MBSD we sell a lot of high-grade, high-quality pipes from various iconic makes, but the pipes we’re most proud of are our meerschaums. Right from the beginning, we wanted to offer the best smoking meers on the market, and to do this, we had them made with two distinct features. First, we made sure that they were made with block meerschaum that was carefully selected to be the most lightweight, pure, and porous available, meaning it would also color more quickly and evenly as it is smoked. Second, for our Deluxe meerschaums, we had the pipes made with a patented Briar-Mortise system that is closer to the stem connection on a briar pipe than a standard meerschaum. This is because, on our Deluxe models, the mortise is made from briar itself, while the tenons used are made from Delrin. This allows for more precision construction of the pipe’s draft hole, as well as a general extra durability and longevity.

My meerschaum carver in Eskişehir has been experimenting with different finishes recently. While the traditional Turkish lattice carvings are undoubtedly beautiful, we both wanted to find a way to make the most of the high-grade block meerschaum he had access to, while offering a variety of styles – whether smooth, sandblasted, or hand-carved. This finish on this bent egg was inspired by Vietnamese wicker weaving, which should lend a unique appearance not unlike such tapestries as the meerschaum begins to color.

While some meerschaum pipes come with clamshell cases, some pipe smokers don’t find much use for them. As our Deluxe meerschaums are all fitted with an extra durable, patented Briar-Mortise system, we considered this an opportunity to offer a pipe that instead comes with a complimentary protective sleeve, and to pass the savings onto our buyers. For buyers that would like a cased pipe, please see our other listings, where we provide plenty of suitable options.
