It does... Just put a bowl of Vintage Syrian through it and it smokes great. This is the third estate pipe I've purchased from smokingpipes.com and I am thrilled with the service. The descriptions are dead-on accurate, they provide a lot of details, and the prices are competitive. I'm hooked.

So you're the one that got that one. I was eyeing it and debating it, but I figured that it might be latakia-ed already. (I've already got enough latakia pipes and only buy pipes for VAs these days.) Nice pipe. If you like an oil-cure, Ashtons are the best smoking pipes currently made, IMO. Enjoy!

I take no joy in depriving you of this pipe (as far as you know). You're right on being latakia-ed. This pipe is a champ. I forced myself to give it rest today... love at first light.

I've just started smoking meers and they are outstanding. A very clean smoke, incredibly light weight, and they don't need a rest. You can smoke a bowl then swab it out with a cleaner through the airway and a napkin to wipe out the bowl and then pack it right back up. The only real downside that I can see is that they're fragile and I've heard that some brands are not very well engineered. The newer meers with tenons instead of bone screws are much better IMO. So far, I'm impressed with SMS. I purchased these two for $55 and $66 respectively including shipping and handling. That's a steal!

I saw saw beautiful meers and being who I am, of course I liked the most expensive ones. When they price tag says $600, I have to pass no matter how nice it is.
