The Pride pipe is natural and unsealed finished Corn Cob. Only produced from selected cobs with an even and pleasing look. Compared to the Legend, the Prides lack of varnish a coating results in an even dryer smoke. Ideal for smoking a sticky American style Aromatic and not having to worry about ghostings and ruining the taste of future tobaccos. This extra absorbency and look come at a price, these pipes need to be handled a little more carefully and can snap if dropped. The hardwood shank is left without any carvings and a 6mm medico filter, lives in the black mouthpiece.

Corn cobs have a slightly bad reputation, they are seen as the disposable pipe. A cheap alternative to briar and therefore inferior too, but thats not fair at all. The Missouri Meerschaum pipes are made by hand, using specifically bread corn. The porous husk allows for a dryer smoke, absorbing the moisture and like Clay & Meerschaum smokes very cool. Unlike Briar and other wooden pipes, a carbon cake is not required. The first few smokes have a sweet, nutty taste but after that the pipe holds no background flavours and always gives a pure taste to the tobacco. Many blenders (our self's included) use Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipes to sample blends, for the neutral taste.

Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipes with always have those who look down and see a poor smoking pipe. Whereas those who smoke them, appreciate Cobs for all their benefits. For less than £5 you can have a pipe that with a little care will last between 1-3 years. You cant even get a clay pipe for that money and they designed to thrown away. 

Ideal for those new to pipe smoking or those of us who like to try different tobaccos and do not to ruin a good briar with ghosted flavours.
