You simply can’t go wrong with a cheap, everyday pipe and there’s none better than Missouri Meerschaum. Henry Tibbe started making corn cob pipes in 1869 as a favor to a customer. The pipes became so famous that within ten years Tibbe solely focused on this style pipe. And after all these years, the company is still as strong as ever. Many may imitate but few have achieved the perfection of Missouri Meerschaum.
