I have looked at over 35 sites that sell Meerschaum pipes, and in my opinion, Altinok has the best pipes available. I feel that they have the finest, highest quality workmanship, best price performance, and very efficient shipping. I currently have purchased 16 pipes which show outstanding workmanship and artistic intent, and were received in less than one month. The highest praise that I can give is that I will continue to do business with Altinok and am very satisfied with what we have accomplished thus far. At Altinok you are part of the team, not just a customer.
