Very nice! What do you think of Storient? Good smokers etc?

Thanks

I smoked some Commonwealth in my Altinok. Didn't see any dead cowboys but I just pressed the emergency brake in my commuter train. :lol:

Well my experience with Storient is awesome.. Storient is also sold at smokingpipes.com but the ones I bought are all from Storients web site http://www.meerschaumpipe.us

As a review I can confidently say that the meerschaum quality is top or even above.I can also say the smoking experience is very pure with the medusa.I have smoked my lee van only twice yet but it is as good as the medusa and my other poker from them.Engineering is VERY GOOD! just like my baki meers
I would buy one more but I really have to save some money for a new peterson in two or three months.

The only problem is my first two meers came in 3-4 days from turkey and I was impressed; however the last one took a while ( almost two weeks)
Yavuz Korpefiliz is the owner,a history graduate, very experienced and he helps you with everything indeed.I added him to my facebook friend list and can ask him some questions about my new meers as well as the other brands that I have,from time to time..

I would never buy a pre colored meerschaum pipe.I have seen lots of pre colored models and I know they are very popular but meerschaum is known for its white color since 19th century.
White is the original color. :ugeek:

I suppose the same could be said about briar pipes, then? Briar doesn't come out of the ground in all of the various dyed colors that we see on the market but yet we still buy them. I own several meers and one of them was pre colored by the maker. The pre coloring is one of the things that attracted me to the pipe. I like it just as much as the white ones. I really like the LVC Meer that's listed in this post. I may have to get one.

You may change your mind if the right pipe came up .While I prefer white most of the better non standard carvings are pre-coloured and they smoke just as well .

I really think threads like this should be totally and absolutely banned!!!

I've been away from my meerschaums for a while and had just returned to them to give them another try - when along comes this accursed thread and of course "sweet tempation comes calling" - no time to order one before going back to Spain, but I'll be back by Easter and I've a good idea what'll be on my birthday present list - suffice to say both Baki and Storient's sites are now on my Favourites.

Enjoy that pipe and happy smoking all!
