General information about Meerschaum pipes-
Meerschaum is a very rare mineral also known by its scientific name: Sepiolite. Sadik Yanik choses only Eskisehir meerschaum recognized as the globe’s highest quality source. This very light, porous, magnesium-rich hard white clay is ideal for fabrication into smoking pipes. Meerschaum pipes smoke cool and dry and deliver a smoking experience that does not adulterate the true flavors of quality Tobaccos.
Meerschaum is a natural filter, absorbing Tobacco tars and smoke by-products. As a result, over time meerschaum pipes slowly change colors to tones of gold and dark brown.
Meerschaum vs. Briar: Cool dry smoke every time
Unlike briar wood, Meerschaum does not burn and can be smoked throughout the day without drying due to its absorbing qualities. Meerschaum pipes do not need pre-smoking or “burn-in” and can be enjoyed from the very first bowl. Handling and storage of meerschaum does require reasonable care; it is possible to break or chip this superlight mineral clay if impacted against a hard surface and rough handling of the bowl of a pipe warmed by smoking can affect the surface finish.
Because of the unique qualities of these pipes, many old and rare meerschaums have found a permanent place in museums and private collections.
Meerschaum pipes are the most flavorful and beautiful pipes you can own.
