I post quite often about smoking my MM Diplomat with Plum Forever Stem and whatever tobacco I've chosen.

What many don't know is through the course of a year I smoke that pipe 4 times a day.

Given the pipe is 8 y/o it has been smoked more than 10,000 times, had the original stem replaced with another original MM stem and when that one needed to be replaced I bought the Forever Stem.

Yessir those corn cob pipes are just throwaway pipes! Wink Keeping it smokey.

Yessir, some of my cobs are 20 years old, though they don't get the intensive use yours do. The diplomat line has always been a favorite pipe, good looking, cool smoking, not picky as to tobacco,  light, nice size, durable. I've never popped for the forever stem but keep a little supply of the OE 50 center replacements handy.

Yesiree, cobs are the unsung hero. Always have a good experience with them no matter what the pipe weed. It's a wonder why I don't exercise them more than I do!

That cob looks natural on you banjo!

Cool



Cheers,

RR

If I knew MM corn cobs existed before I started collecting briars, I would not have owned one briar today.

My very old Country Gentlemen is a better smoker than my 2 Dunhills.

I just love my cobs.

I'm waiting for a new Dagner/MM Poker, should be here by Friday.

10,000 smokes? About time you threw it away Banjo Wink

Seriously though, it's good and reassuring to read this. Great pipe too.

Never cared for cobs. I know I should, and I've tried, I really have. Gave away every one I've ever owned. For a while I kept going back, figuring it was some sort of deficiency in my character. Thought about seeking professional help. maybe joining some sort of support group. Finally realized it was cobs and not me. And I'm OK with that.

Nah! You don't HAVE to like them. And, of course, this is the forum for Brothers of BRIAR Laughing
