The venerable Savinelli 320 is one of my favorite shapes. Its sizable bowl allows for a long, easy smoke, and the exterior feels good in the hand. On a personal note, the pipe that really got me to fall in love with pipe smoking is my treasured Trevi 320 Rusticated. The Author is one of the most recognizable shapes in the Savinelli line, and one that is very popular among pipe smokers. Some 320 owners even jokingly consider themselves part of a clandestine association known lovingly as the "320 Mafia."
The Pipe Nook just received a new shipment of pipes, and among them were 320's in the Roma and Trevi lines. In addition, we have a Rossi Author shape available in the Vittoria series. Every pipe smoker owes it to themselves to add a 320 to their rotation at some point. Why wait? Join the 320 Mafia today!
The Pipe Nook is pleased to present the newest addition to our shop: Missouri Meershcaum Corn Cob Pipes! These pipes have been made in Washington, Missouri since 1869 and are as American as Baseball and Apple Pie! There is simply no more affordable way to get into pipe smoking. Yes, they're rustic, and no they won't impress many of your poker buddies. But don't think that takes anything away from the quality smoke these pipes offer. Many pipe smokers enjoy smoking their cob pipes as much as, if not more than, any other pipes in their collection. I know, because I'm one of them!
Corn cob pipes offer a slightly sweeter smoke than briars, and boast many benefits that their Briar counterparts simply can't. First, they're cheap enough to not have to worry so much about losing them, breaking them, leaving them in the car, etc. Plus, they're practically self-cleaning, since the bowl slowly burns out rather than forming a cake. Add to that the fact that they don't suffer ghosting (retaining strong flavors of previous tobacco blends) the way briars tend to. Plus, they're lightweight. They smoke cooler and drier than many other pipes. And they last much longer than many give them credit for--I know I've smoked one of mine at least a hundred times, and it just keeps giving me pleasant smoke after smoke.
If you've never tried a Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob and you enjoy pipe smoking, you owe it to yourself. And if you're on the fence about spending a ton of money to try out this whole pipe smoking thing, you just can't get a better pipe for any less money. So what are you waiting for? Throw a couple of cobs in the cart. You'll be glad you did!
