An Altinok pipe is actually a conclusion of many works done by many talented people involved. Those are the carvers, silversmith, case maker, sandpaperman, stem maker. I`m deeply thankful each of them at heart to keep our business alive for more than 14 years.

Mahogany Calabash with Block Meerschaum Bowl

 

This calabash pipe offers an excellent smoking experience by its premium block meerschaum bowl on top of a mahogany wood. As you may know, mahogany came into prominence as the gourd becomes less in the nature. Although it is a little bit heavier than gourd, mahogany provides almost same smoking quality as its competitor does. Normally, these kind of calabashes used to pair with a pressed bowl instead of block meerschaum. For a while, we only attach block meerschaum bowls to our calabash pipes. A great difference in every aspect. Block meerschaum helps tobacco burn in lower temperatures, very light in weight, much better resistance to excessive heat, good coloring behavior (pressed one never colors). As for why a calabash pipe is so good in smoking, main thing is that it has a big chamber right under the bowl which is the most important part to get the smoke cool and dry, I call it inter-cooler! The smoke even then gets cooler and drier while traveling all the way through the long stem. The result; cool, dry and pure taste of your blend!
