You won’t notice as much coloration, but you can still participate... I have a Peterson African Meer, it has colored some although I suspect it is quite old.

It’s not? I think I bought mine when I was in Europe, so I guess that makes sense.

Wessex Gold Slice in my Servi Lady's Hand. I bothered up and somehow stained the pipe in two places with tobacco juice. Drives me nuts, but now I can enjoy the pipe more.

Wonderful combination by the way. I've decided I really love meerschaums.

Wessex Burley Slice, Servi Lady's Hand. Patina developing. Also dumb arse handling marks.

How's yours coming?

Your pipe is carved to look like a hand holding a pipe? How meta.

Not noticing much as of yet...

Bowl 12 this morning was Dunhill EMP in a buddy’s back porch over coffee. He lives down the road and has a nice screened in porch, a welcome getaway for some dude time!
