Confessions of a Burley Lover
These just came out. Seems like a utilitarian line for Meerschaum. Very cool. Many different styles like the Bones line.
Yeah, that's why I've never managed to pull the trigger on these. I have a couple Falcon stems and a couple meerschaum bowls that just get the job done flawlessly, so for me the only reason to get one of these lightweight meerschaums is aesthetics. If somebody's torn between one of these or the Falcon route, I'd vote Falcon as well.As much as I like those pipes from both Morgan and Altinay, I'd probably buy 2 meerschaum Falcon bowls instead for the same $120.
Then, I'd accomplish pretty much the same thing, but with two smoking options rather one.
Probably, but better to let them be enjoyed than wasted, no?
I admit I have no idea what the process is from mining the meerschaum to a finished product. I imagine there are probably pieces that are better suited for the production of Falcon bowls and the pipes in this post.So do you think the Meerschaum Falcon bowls are made from cutoffs and scraps too? Both look like good use of meerschaum that couldn't be made into 'regular' pipes to me.
