Several years ago I bought a couple of estates and the guy threw in a couple of cobs. I just ignored them until yesterday, when I tried a few bowls and did some reading on these nicely plebeian smoking machines. You would not believe how cool and dry they smoke. I also found a guy who makes replacement lucite and vulcanite bits for the Missouri Meerschaums. Always new stuff to learn.
Hope we see lots of weird and wonderful freehands on here.
