Every pipe smoker needs a meerschaum in their collection. The main advantage of having a meerschaum pipe, besides looking cool, is you can smoke them over and over without having to let them dry out like a briar. The more you smoke them the more they will color and will eventually turn a dark amber, which is the hallmark of any well-smoked meerschaum. Meerschaum Depot has you covered by importing the pipes directly from Turkey and they work closely with the carvers to ensure quality pipes that are made to smoke like a dream. All Meerschaum Depot pipes are made from block meerschaum and come with fitted cases for easy storage.
