Nice/unique Meer...

Post by JMG » Tue Sep 18, 2018 10:59 pm

I love meers, but I'm pretty picky. This one really caught my eye. If I could justify the 40 bones I would snag it. Notice the delrin line mortise and "normal" integrated tenon on the stem. That's how it should be done. None of this screw-in business. You don't see this type of connection in meers very often.

I just got my very 1st Meer a couple weeks ago, a Bekler, and I really like how it smokes. But this one here would be too shallow a bowl for me.

I feel honored that Hugodrax's first post in his reappearance was to me, even though it was merely a "Derp." He remembered how much I liked that.
