The Shire Corn Cob Pipe is one of two mid-sized pipes in the Cobbit Collection of new, churchwarden style pipes. It has an acorn-shaped bowl that's not only pleasing to behold, but pleasing when held in the palm of your hand. Like all pipes in the Cobbit Collection, the bowl has a dark stain added to the coating, a genuine, hardwood insert in the bottom, and an Italian vulcanite bit. The Shire is not flashy – just dependable and trustworthy – always there to help ease the cares of the day with a bowl of your favorite leaf.
Due to the nature of the corn cobs themselves, you may notice some chipping on the top edge of your pipe. This is perfectly normal and won't in any way affect the way your pipe smokes. These chips only add to the charm and character of corn cob pipes.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is an unfiltered pipe. If you are looking for a first pipe or are fairly new to pipe smoking, I strongly recommend trying a 6mm or 9mm filtered pipe. If you're one of the many who battle the dreaded tongue-bite, filtered pipes help to alleviate this problem. You can always try smoking your filtered pipes without a filter in place, to see if unfiltered smoking irritates your tongue, and can purchase non-filtered pipes from there. If you already know that tongue-bite is not an issue for you, then never mind. :)
