Could you even imagine having a company like the 1955 Missouri Meerschaum around today? Cob heaven, baby.

WARNING: RANT AHEAD

Everyone says that but Missouri Meerschaum still won't budge. Sure, they will throw a bone and make these reverse calabash cobs and some guys like them, but c'mon. They are not oblivious to what cob smokers want, they just won't do it. I don't believe that they can't do it.

Bring on the reed cobs. Well, they say, we can't get reeds any more. I don't know if they can or can't but that sounds more like an excuse. Reeds grow out of the ground for goodness sake, just like corn. And Washington is on a river, grow some flippin' reeds!

Bring on the corn dogs. Please! Heaven knows they'd sell out. People are so starved for good smoking corn that they can't even keep the old PSF POS...errr, POY in stock. Starved, I tell ya.

Just bring back every pipe in that 1955 catalog, Missouri Meerschaum, you'd sell out in a week. Or less maybe. Quit coming up with dreck that nobody really wants. Outlaw pipes, Dreckner pokers, Shortstop...the list of they try to pass off on us goes on and on. If you like the stuff they're making today then God bless...I'm not satisfied. The base pipes are good, Legend, CG, et al., but Missouri Meerschaum can do a lot better. They're coasting. :tumble: :uh:

I hear ya Kevin, they definitely could do a lot better with their offerings. I love my PSF1.0 2012 POY, "The Cob-warden". I could probably send Doug a cob and have him make me another one...

It almost looks like they were made better back then... or at least had better photos for propaganda in the '55 catalog. I'll +1 on the Cob Dog... had one in the refurb box back in 2010, but sold it before I knew what I had.

I love cobs, and have a few in rotation. But I'd have me a fistful of those corndogs in a New York minute!
