The MacArthur Corn Cob Pipes from Missouri Meerschaum is a large pipe similar to the iconic pipe smoked by General Douglas MacArthur himself. Based on an old design from the late 1800s, this pipe has a very deep bowl and a long stem for an extended, cool smoking experience. The MacArthur Classic Natural is available only as a straight, unfiltered pipe with a black bit. This pipe is great for smoking, but can also serve as a conversation piece sitting in a place of honor on the mantle. 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. The chips only add to the charm and character of your corn cob pipe. Enjoy!
