Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob 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 that doesn't take 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! Unless otherwise specified, the pipes pictured are examples of the pipe you will receive and not the actual pipe. Each pipe is unique and will vary slightly in appearance. Due to the nature of the corn cobs themselves, you may notice some chipping on the top edge of your pipe. This is perfectly normal and won't in any way affect the way your pipe smokes. These chips only add to the charm and character of corn cob pipes. If you are unhappy with the pipe you receive for any reason, you may return it unsmoked for a full refund or replacement. Smoked pipes with defects may be returned within 30 days of purchase.
