Heath Piersel and Missouri Meerschaum Pipes from the Kansas City Pipe Show today.

Very pleased with the HP for $35.00. Have already modified both MM Pipes.

The commissioned pipe will remain anonymous . . .

Complete with Forever stems! You did it right...

Did you use a dremel on the bowls? Did you get a full inch?

[sorry for all the questions...]

The Mark Twain (top) has a Forever Stem that I had. I was able to get near an inch at the top and taper to the bottom standard bore. I used a step drill bit to ~ 1" and tapered with a rotary rasp bit.

The Mark Twain (bottom) has a standard MM Stem from another model that works well. I opened this pipe to ~ 3/4", again with step drill bit and finished with the rotary rasp bit.

I have bored out a variety of cobs and briars (and one morta) using a standard 7/8 drill bit and a dremel. I like this modification.

I sent one to [mention]Kevin Keith[/mention] for field testing, and he has not managed to get it to burn out yet.

Really like the length of that HP. Nice pipe & for a bargain.
Is it a good smoker?

Stems on the cobs look good.

Not perfect with some open grain but smokes very well and a nice value. Would definitely buy another.
