Ok, so today I went to buy something that I found online a few months back. It was a site where someone was making extra bits for Missouri Meerschaum pipes. If anyone has any of their pipes you will know that the pipes seem to smoke fine (country gentleman being one of my favorites) but the plastic bits they come with are not much to talk about. MM from what I understand has made churchwardens in the past but have none for sale atm. I have ordered extra bits from MM they offer bent or straight in black or amber but that is about it and whatever you chose doesn't make that much of a difference. Anyway, I stumbled upon a site where they offered many different bits for MM pipes one of which was a churchwarden bit that would fit any of the filtered pipes MM sales. They had a few different styles and some different lengths you could order and I think you could custom order whatever length you wanted. I had a problem with the bookmarks on my browser and now I have lost the sit and having a little bit of trouble relocating it. Does anyone else know what I am talking about?

That's cool. Thanks for this. I have an old MM from the 70s and the bit wont stay in. This let me smoke it. bounce

This is a couple pictures of the chuchwarden bit I got in the mail today. It cost $24 with shipping. I put it on one of my Missouri Meerschaum Ozark Mountain Cherry pipes. It seems to fit the pipe well and is much better quality than the ones that they come with. (I am having trouble posting pictures for some reason so here is a flicker link to see it if anyone cares too)

Very nice. I'm curious, how does the Churchwarden bit change the way the pipe smokes? Or does it not? Is it a cooler smoke?

I noticed a significant difference in the temperature of the smoke being cooler. The pipe I put it on has a tendency to get hot close to the middle and bottom of the bowl and it smoked cooler with the churchwarden bit. Also thought I tasted more in the baccy than usual but that could just be me.
