About Corn Cob Pipes

The specifically American style of pipes made from corn cobs are inexpensive and effective, even if some regard them as inelegant. The cobs are first dried for two years, then they are hollowed out to make a bowl shape. The bowls are dipped in a plaster-based mixture and varnished or lacquered on the outside. Shanks made from pine wood are then inserted into the bowls. The first and largest manufacturer of corncob pipes is Missouri Meerschaum, located in Washington, Missouri, in the United States. Missouri Meerschaum has produced the pipes since 1869. General Douglas MacArthur and Mark Twain were perhaps the most famous smokers of this type of pipe, along with the cartoon characters Popeye and Frosty the Snowman.

Corn cob pipes remain popular today because they are inexpensive and require no “break-in” period like briar pipes. For these two reasons, corn cob pipes are often recommended as a “beginner’s pipe”. However, corn cob pipes are equally valued by both learners and experienced smokers who simply desire a cool, clean smoke. Pipe smokers who wish to sample a wide variety of different tobaccos and blends also might keep a stock of corncobs on hand to permit them to try new flavors without “carryover” from an already-used pipe or to keep potentially bad-tasting tobacco from adding its flavor to a more expensive or favored pipe
