White Turkish Meerschaums
Hand-carved Turkish Meerschaums are a must for any collector! These wonderfully cool and dry smoking pipes are individually crafted by skilled artisans using age-old techniques so no two are exactly alike. Each pipe comes in its own individually fitted protective case. Bowl sizes may vary slightly.
Meerschaum is a rare, sturdy material mined from the shores and sea-beds of Turkey. Meerschaum is a word of German origin meaning "sea foam." Meerschaum's natural pores filter tobacco tar and allow for a clean, smooth smoke every time. Don't smoke too much though. While Meerschaum is a sturdy substance, over-smoking it can cause irreparable damage. It is best to purchase several pipes to allow them a suitable resting period between smoking. Each meerschaum piece is hand-carved and comes from Turkey. Manufacturer's Lifetime warranty. (shipping weight 1 lb)
