Have your seen the Amber Danish Stem?
The Danish stem (bit) that some of our pipes feature has been a popular upgrade for the pipes that feature the standard filtered stem, but in 2012 when Missouri Meerschaum launched their larger maple pipes they adding an amber version of the Danish stem that has quickly become my favorite. Besides being a bit firmer and wider than the standard stem, an unexpected surprise came after a dozen of so smokes when it started developing a deep patina. The attached photo shows a cob with a new, unsmoked stem, and the other is a pipe that has been in regular rotation for a few months.
