Meerschaum translates from German to English as ‘Sea Foam’. An incredibly effective material for pipes as its hard to burn out due to its heat absorbing qualities. It starts off it’s journey coming from the Black Sea, and when wet is easy to carve making it a favourite for craftsman in Turkey to display intricate patterns. Over a period of time it absorbs the nicotine, changing colour from an ivory white to a brown speckled tortoise shell pattern. The meerschaum also vitrifies over this time period, becoming ever more durable.

Turkish Meerschaum (Sepiolite) Blog

Meerschaum translates from German to English as ‘Sea Foam’. This term was employed as the material could sometimes be found afloat the Black Sea. This incredibly workable material, also known as sepiolite, was first given the name meerschaum in 1788 by Abraham Gottlob Werner. That being said, some of the earliest examples of meerschaum pipes date back to sixty years before. The material was (and still is) sought after for it’s highly porous and easy to carve nature. Meerschaum has become synonymous with Turkish pipe makers. The skills used to apply such detail to these pipes has made them world renowned, and quite rightly so. To read more click here.

    Bought this as I have always wanted to try a Meer but was put off buy the cost, what if I didn’t like it? No need to worry this pipe was in my option inexpensive and very pretty. It’s not to small, around 6” in length. It is however a wee bit heavier than I thought it would be. Not sure if it’s block meerschaum or composite. However at this price I concider it a guid buy. The most important thing is yes, it smokes braw allowing the true taste of the blend to shine through. I’m looking forward now to colouring this pipe hoping to smoke it 3-4 times a day. I smoke several blends, flakes through to heavy aromatics and these pipes are great for not ghosting. Well after all that nonsense what I’m trying to say is that I’d recommend these “budget meters” to anyone looking for a useable everyday pipe, not an elaborate expensive work of art that your to frightened tae puff. Well done Pipe Shop and thank you to the ever helpful friendly staff. Puff on you crazy diamonds.
