So the other day a friend of mine bought a storage unit at a local auction. In the locker was one pipe. A Butz-Choquin Cappadoce. Meer lined almost bulldog style I guess you would call it.

I have smoked Meer lined pipes in the past and am not a fan of them.

Now for what might piss yall off.....


I took my dremel and I took that godforsaken Meer lining outta the bastard!!!!!!!!!

Left it in the bottom so I didnt have to worry bout trying to kake the bottom of thebowl but in my opinion that is about all the good meerschaum is worth.

Please dont kick me outta the brotherhood.

Wouldn't be the first person to mod a pipe.

Remaining bowl thickness might be a bit thin now? May smoke hot??

I was thinking this as well. It may also require a little more attention now without the meer, but no more than any other wooden pipe really. If you're happy with the way it is, then that's what really counts. Smile

Just have to be aware that the lining may be there for a reason such as the briar may not be of good quality and thus not the best smoke.

Id very much like to see a picture of that and I hope that youre having just as much fun smoking the ex-Cappadoce as you had reboring it.

To each his own. One of my best smoking pipes is an old, beat up, meer-lined Kaywoodie. Every smoke has been cool, dry and sweet tasting.

I am not a great fan of meerscaums. I bought a meer lined French pipe one time, quite large it was. It smoked great. Much better smoke than a straight meerscaum with no briar around it.

With my only experience with a meer lined bowl (leather wrapped to boot) I think drilling it out was too modest a move. I would have introduced it to Mr. Twelve Gage. affraid
