Luxury Twist Flake for the second bowl ever in my first meerschaum pipe. I was relighting halfway through the bowl and heard a pop.

Well, I guess the meer search is back on.
I'd run some super glue in the crack and maybe a zip tie around it while you decide if you want to shop for a replacement
A trick I learned for fixing cracks in stone with superglue - apply the glue to the crack, and then sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda over the exposed glue. This causes cyanoacrylate to set instantly and it becomes extremely hard.

Maybe I’ll try that. I thought about just finishing the bowl to see if it got any worse, but then I imagined the whole thing cracking off into my lap, ember and all.

Elizabethan Match in the Amphora X-tra Lumberman. Need to get myself a tin of Dunhill Elizabethan so I can do my dual pipe, side by side test.

Last night's smoke of Pegasus in the OE 52s was so good that I decided to do it again for an early afternoon break. Enjoying a bit of Irish breakfast tea with it

I had a bowl of Half and Half in the Viscount pot while out and about delivering groceries, etc.

I just finished that and am back in the office now. I'll have some Derby Club in the same pipe and review the homily for the service tonight and the materials for the men's group.

Your Silver Duke and this Viscount are my favorites of the Grabow Pots you post regularly . . . both look to be well appreciated favorites.
