Yeah, but it looks great long before it's about to burn out.

Crap! I wish you wouldn't have said that. I do not need another cob do I?

Puff, I experimented once with a stain I use to build wood arrows. I use Rit dye and mix it with denatured alcohol, and it works great on arrow woods, but I couldn't get it to absorb properly into a cob. I was trying to stain the cob green, but it just wasn't happening. Not sure why, but I have always been fascinated with green pipes.

I also tried some standard brown Minwax stains, but they didn't absorb into the Plaster of Paris fill, and eventually caused the PoP to turn loose in some places. I epoxied those pieces back in though.

I never tried soaking the cob in the Rit dye mix over a period of time though, maybe that would have allowed the stain to absorb properly.

Yep, affordable fun. Couldn't go tinkering  with those fancy Dunghills like this, expensive as they are, even if they don't smoke nearly as good as the cobs.

Just a corncob? Not only are they a Hillbilly mainstay, they are viewed by some as a fashion accessory!

If the corncob pipe is just a corncob, then I would submit that the Montblanc pen is just a pen, and no more functional than my black Industrial Sharpie!

Who could watch this video and not agree that the American corncob is the go to pipe of the American pipeman.
