Gilbert Mendez, Alexandria - Virginia - November 09, 2017
Just got the pipe it is fantastic better than anything amazon has I will be ordering another one next month thank you for the prompted service.
James Greene Logan, Utah - November 06, 2017
The pipe arrived yesterday. It is magnificent. The workmanship is the best I've ever seen and the stone you used is exceptional. I've already put two half bowls through it. The draw is smooth and easy. I particularly like the deep bend stem that you used. It makes the pipe very comfortable to smoke. I know you put a lot of work into this one and you should know that I greatly appreciate it. This pipe will have a pride of place. Thank you so much for the effort you put into it. I will be honoring that effort for the years to come. Dr Earl R Smith II Washington DC, USA - August 22 2017

Lance Hart, Brandon, Mississippi USA - August 04 2017
My pipe arrived today. It is a true work of art! It is beautiful! My compliments to you and your family for providing such amazing products. I look forward to enjoying my pipe, and purchasing more from you in the future.
Thank you again for your fine work, and great customer service. You have a great company.
Philip Mowry North Carolina, USA - July 20 2017
The pipe is absolutely beautiful! I presented it to the commander this past week-end at a very famous historical monument and he was elated. He opened the box and knew immediately what it was. The surprise in his voice was priceless. He said he had been looking for one for on of these for years. He looked like he was making love to it as he held and smoked it. I have never seen him so happy. Thank you. Would you be interested in making another? I too have been looking for a pipe like this for years.

I seldom go to great lengths in writing a referral unless the experience that I have had vastly exceeds my expectations. My experience with Burak and Meerschaum Market demands my time to tell my friends.
I am relatively new to the pipe smoking community. I dabbled a bit with pretty but cheap briar pipes and had a less than stellar experience. My wife gave me my first high quality briar pipe for Christmas and I began to understand the difference. My tobacconist kept encouraging me to explore a meerschaum for the ultimate experience. I admit that I was a bit hesitant because of the price difference.
When I began my exploration, I quickly discovered that there were three basic tiers, in my perception, of these pipes. The low end pipes could be found for a very cheap price, and they marketed that way. I discounted these because I know you get what you pay for. The ultra high end collector pipes were way out of my range or desire. So where do I go to find my perfect pipe. If I had a good friend with some experience, I would ask him. If you find yourself in this place, let me be that friend.
Meerschaum Market (meerschaummarket.com) has beyond a doubt the best selection of pipes I found. I do not do these creations justice by calling them pipes. They are art pieces that even nonsmokers marvel at. The detail on the pipe is amazing, both from a general view perspective and also close scrutiny. My Navy meerschaum has anchors on it, and close study shows they each have a detail of cracked leather behind them. The selection is amazing. I had to really think about what memory and thoughts I wanted to elicit while smoking this pipe. When I found the US Navy commemoratives, I knew one of these would be the one.
The pipes themselves are expertly made. Their feel and draw are impeccable. The specialized case is very nice, and makes seeing your pipe for the first time a memorable experience. The shipping process is seamless and efficient, even though my pipe came from Turkey. It shipped and arrived far sooner than I had initially expected.
My Meerschaum Market pipe immediately became my favorite, and while I initially thought it would be my only meerschaum, I now am considering a second piece. I guess some people have tattoos, I have pipes. Perhaps the highest praise for Burak and Meerschaum Market is the fact that I have introduced my lifelong friend to the store, and am planning to gift him a pipe as a token of my heartfelt brotherhood with him. You only go 1st class when you want to express feelings like that.

Thank you for this Meerschaum Pipe. It is even more beautiful than your excellent photographs!!! Anyone thinking of buying your Pipes, should keep in mind that the superior quality of your meerschaums, is much much better in person than the photographs can depict. You are excellent at describing the details and information for making an informed decision. Working with you is a delight and a pleasure. I am so grateful to have purchased this, and several others , from you. You have an excellent understanding and knowledge of the Meerschaum Pipe Collecting world. Your pipes are far far better than most all I generally look at. Again, thank you for working with me on this purchase and all of the others I have bought from you since. I continue to be blown away by the astonishing quality & reasonable prices. I would recommend You HIGHLY to anyone considering a carved Meerschaum Pipe. Thank you again for an exceptional purchasing experience & beautifully carved pipes! Worth Customs waiting!
Judge Stoffel, Lexington NC -USA - February 24 2017
Thank you so much! The entire ordering process was fantastic and delivery extremely rapid. The pipe itself is exquisite. A true work of art made with skilled hands. The first smoke was extraordinary, it was smoothly sublime and a delight to the eyes. I look forward to purchasing more of your pipes in the future. Thank you so much my friend for a wonderful pipe smoking experience.
All the Best,
Alexander Barktkow, Plaınview, New York - USA - 18 February 2017
I would like to let you know that I purchased this for my wife and she absolutely loves it.
In her words, It is so much better that I thought it was going to be! It s perfect!
Thank you again. I have left positive feedback.

I received the I Baglan Christmas pipe in record time over the holiday. It was perfect, as have all of this master carver's pipes that I have collected. Thank you once again for a wonderfully detailed pipe.
Dick Yardley, Columbus, OH - USA - January 01 2017
Treasure it always... Thank you for crafting such a beautiful piece .
I am very proud already that it is mine, when I saw it on your site, it just kept drawing me back to it , almost like it was asking me to bring it HOME .
I am very active in Masonic Groups , Past Commander of Knights Templar , Past High Priest in Chapter and Thrice Illustrious Master in Council this year and a member of many many more... So this is truly a keepsake that I will pass down to one of my Grandsons in the future .
Thank you again for being a true artisan.
Mark D. Powell, Washington, PA - USA - December 27 2016
The two pipes that I ordered arrived safely today. They are beautiful and great smokes. Thanks again.
Please let me know if you ever have a Zeus with bent stem and hair flowing onto it. I can provide specific details.
With my best wishes,

Meerschaum market and the carver I. Baglan.
I ordered a pipe with a skull and octopus tentacles from you and I was skeptical to order, however my pipe was shipped to me all the way from Turkey in less than a week. Fantastic delivery time, and I couldn't be happier with the pipe itself. It's beautifully carved and the case it comes in is of a higher quality than I expected as well. This alone was enough to satisfy me and upon my VERY FIRST SMOKE I have never smoked a finer bowl of tobacco. You should be very proud of your craftsmanship and I applaud you, because I am very proud to own one of your pipes and I will definitely be ordering from you the next time I want a meerschaum pipe and will be recommending you to anyone who asks.
Thank you very much!

I am ecstatic, the pictures did not do these pipes justice. The soldier looks much more detailed than I expected and the IMP pipes look and feel so well crafted. I will try the Bulldog with the red band later tonight!
Thank you so very much! I genuinely look forward to doing more business with you soon!!
Matthew Garrett - Gainesville, FL - USA - September 12 2016
Hi mr servi just to let you know my pipe arrived earlier today and it is an amazing piece of art ( you guys are so talented ) I could not believe it when my wife said the pipe was here only posted yesterday that is unbelievable thank you for the fantastic service and ultra rapid delivery I am a very happy man,I will definitely be buying from you again, many thanks Jon
Jonathan Humphrey - Gloucestershire, UK March 09 2016
I received the pipe and wanted to let you know that I am truly pleased with it. The pipe is a work of art - the craftsmanship is first rate - it is a thing of beauty that I will enjoy for years to come. I will buy all my future Meerschaum pipes from you and sing your praises to all of my pipe smoking friends.
Dr Earl R Smith II - Washington DC, USA January 18 2016
Greetings & Salutations Mr. Burak! The Ashley arrived in perfect condition this afternoon! I knew the pipe would be magnificent in person as opposed to the photographs, and I must say that it is truly stunning in my hands. The pipe is almost too beautiful to smoke! If you have occasion to speak with Mr. Sevket in the future, then please express my profound respect and thanks for his craft and skill(s)! The Ashley will be cherished in my family for generations to come!
Thank you again Mr. Burak for all of your hard work and patience while I decided which pipe to purchase! You are also a credit to your profession, and doing business with you has been a rare pleasure. I will give you another update in a few days after having smoked the pipe several times. We are socked in with winter weather right now, or I would have the Ashley fired up while I write this note (we do not smoke inside our home). Keep up all of your good works!
Elliot Berry - Fritch TX, USA 16 January 2016
Thank You, Your salesmanship is unmeasurable, thank you 4 the super fast delivery! and one day ill be visiting your store again, Peace
Wayne James - Akron, OH USA 15 January 2016
I just wanted to follow up with you. I received my Emin apple shape pipe with the extra stem and connectors. The pipe is excellent, exactly what I expected! It’s actually already starting to color nicely. The smoothness and perfect shape of the pipe are excellent and just what I was looking for in contrast to the figural pipe and Marine Corps pipes you’ve made for me in the past. Thank you again for the great product. I’ll be in touch soon enough when I find my next pipe on meerschaummarket.com! I’ve got my eye on a cobra by Baglan and some IMPs. If you carve any more USMC pipes without coloring them I’ll look for those too.
Thanks and have a great day!
Matt Walters - Skysville Maryland, USA 14 January 2016
I recently received my order of the "Horror Horn" from Ismael Baglan and I just wanted to thank you fine people for the beautiful pipe and super wonderful service! I cannot believe how beautiful and well made this pipe is and the shipping all the way from Turkey is incredible. I recently ordered from Meerschaumstore.com and have had nothing but problems and it took them 2 months to ship me 3 pipes. I'll never order from them again. Your fine establishment has earned my future business and I'll tell all of my friends about you. Please, Please thank Mr. Baglan for me for the wonderful smoking piece. I know that carving can be tough and unappreciated , but it means alot to me. I have always admired his work from afar and he was the reason that I bought my first pipe from you folks in first place. Thanks and have a great day. Robert Depew MI USA
No need to travel to Turkey just to have the finest Meerschaum designs available. You can't find designs like these at local stores. You can trust that these are the finest products available. Satisfaction is guaranteed. This is not pressed or some composite material, but solid block Meerschaum mined and carved in Turkey. I couldn't be happier with my pieces in my collection. Lee HERBST – Savannah GEORGIA USA
There was a knock at my door today and it was the DHL man with my pipe! WOW! Talk about fast shipping and delivery. I opened the package and pulled the closed case out and thought it was large. I opened the case and wow again, what a gorgeous pipe. Amazing, wonderful, large, no huge! I certainly am going to buy again. You did all you said you would and more. Thanks for helping me aquire a most wonderful pipe. I probably will just display it for a while, it is breath taking! Thanks for the fact sheet that describes all of the important things one needs to know when handling one of your magnificent pieces of art. Thanks again. Mike, Texas, USA.
Wanted to let you know that the pipes arrived yesterday. I also wanted to express my thanks for the pipe stands and more importantly I wanted to tell you that the pipes are absolutely amazing. The quality is unmatched in any pipe I have ever owned. They are something I will keep forever and will proudly display and tell everyone who asks me about them as to where they are from and who sold them to me.
I hope that I have the opportunity to thank you in person someday in the not too distant future.
Best regards and thanks again, - Bill - USA
Thanks for being such an honest Ebay seller. It truly is appreciated, even if we are
so far separated by distance, it is a real pleasure dealing with you. Thanks again and
have a good coming week. Dave WV - USA
I recieved my pipes today and had to contact you to tell you how pleased I am with them! The attention to detail is amazing and they smoke like champions!
I will certainly be good advertising for you guys.
Thankyou so very much,
Regards, Stuart - Manjimup Western Australia
I just received both the large Meerschaum pipe and its case (plus the nice attached info card.) -- All was in absolute mint condition, was received promptly and undamaged. Needless to say, I am really quite delighted with both the pipe and your refreshingly prompt, excellent professional service!
In a nut shelI, I absolutely love this pipe. It is an outstanding, portable, work of art. Moreover, the pipe is not only extremely beautiful, but most importantly, it smokes like a dream. Therefore, of course, I look forward to doing much more business with you!
For your information, I've been very seriously collecting Meerschaum pipes (among others) now for many years; I am the most fond of pipe designs which incorporate --most importantly-- a nice, LARGE bowl. With that in mind, I also seriously collect long, (8-12+ inch) bent-stem "Churchwarden" pipe shapes, always with large bowls; I still have yet to find a decent Meerschaum Churchwarden pipe of any kind, let alone ones employing a decent-sized bowl. Furthermore, I am very fond of fanciful, detailed geometric patterns; employing carved themes, places or figures from Classical Greek/Roman Mythology, or even utilizing J.R.R. Tolkien's classic British epic books/mythology related to "Lord of the Rings". Therefore, I'd love to buy at least several interesting Meerschaum pipes, all with a large bowls, offered as a bent Churchwardens.
Thank you again, so very much! :-D
-- Michael Hart
Just a quick note to tell you that the cigar holders arrived safely today. Many thanks indeed. I am delighted with them. They are very beautiful, as is everything I have ordered to date. Will let you know when the Churchill pipe arrives. Again much thanks as always.

Dear Mr Burak Servi,
Received the RAM and it is magnificent!!!! I couldn't be happier! Please tell Mr Baglan
that he is a MASTER! It is just a beautiful work of art. I will find another for my brother
who will be just as thrilled. Thank You for your wonderful service and communications.
I look forward to future contact. I wish you health and happiness in the meantime.
Thank You once again,
Nancy DeYoung VA, USA
The pipe is amazing! It's really a dry and cool smoke. The finishing is also great. The only con is the weight, a little bit heavier than a normal briar pipe. Besides this, is much better then a normal one!
Thank you for all. Daniel CONOVAS - ITALY
Trust you are keeping well. The calabash and King Tut pipes arrived to me today safely. Very quick indeed! Many thanks. They are very very beautiful and looking forward to using them. The Holmes and Watson smoke beautifully. I am new to Meerschaum after many years smoking brier pipes. Meerschaum are much much better! A drier smoke with the real taste of the tobacco shining through. You can be assured that I will buy from you again in the next few months. Again many thanks indeed and will be in touch when I need my next pipes.
With Best Wishes Pearse ...... USA

I received my tortoise meerschaum pipe today and I absolutely love it! Thank you so very much for a beautiful work of art. The chest case is wonderful, too. Out of all the items I've purchased through online over the years, yours has been the most carefully packaged and wrapped item I've ever received! Keep up the outstanding work, and I will be dealing with you again in the future. Your friend in southern California.

I just had to drop you a note. Recieved the pipe yesterday 12/05. I am very pleased with this pipe. The quality and craftsmanship are fist rate and it smokes GREAT.

Louis DeAguiar Hudson FL USA
just received it and my dolphin loving girl friend will love this. thank you so much fast delivery too.now for your great feed back. DIENO CROWN Astoria NY USA
Just to say I received my pipe today and was thoroughly impressed. Even the salesman where I went to buy tobacco was impressed (he have not seen a fancy pipe like that before).
I can, however, give a few suggestions to your site. This the first time I smoked (and I enjoyed it by the way). I have tried 4 cigars in the past but other then secondhand smoke have never smoked before. I got a lot of info from youtube concerning smoking pipe thus at least it was not a strange experience to relight it a few times or problems with the packing. Thus info for a beginner is always highly appreciated.
Also the tools. With my tobacco I bought a folding pipestand, tooll for packing and pipe cleaners. Maybe you can also sell these on your site?
Also I appreciate it that you have send me the tracking number. It was easy to find out if it has arrived and where to fetch it from my local post office.
I am thinking of a churchwarden also so I should probably return to your site in a few months.
Regards, xxxxxx xxxxxxx USA

Hi, I've already received the pipe. The delivery is so fast and efficient. The pipe is very big and beautiful to look at. The carving by Sevket is so skillful. No wonder this is a limited edition pipe.
I have left a feedback to you. Can you leave a feedback for me too. Lastly thanks for selling this pipe to me. Now I'm wondering how I can smoke this pipe is the bowl is so big. Ha Ha Jim Chan - Singapore
I received the pipe today. Thank you for another smooth transaction, your great product and service!

Hello Mr Burak,
It was a pleasure doing business with you..I was in Turkey 10 yrs ago and thought it was lovely
and hope to come again. I have several other pipes I am looking at...very nicely carved..so you will hear from me again...putting grandaughters thru college so I can't spend as I might like...the ram will be my 65th birthday present to myself.! ; ) Thank you for the smooth transaction.
Best Wishes, Nancy De Young , Fairfax VA USA
Hi, I am very satisfied for the pipe and for the service and I think I will buy other pipes in the future. Thank You Dattero Antonio Milano Italy
Thank you! You are helping me to fix an old friend. A Calabash pipe my wife bought me in Hong Kong in the early 1970's. It was a great smoker, but the bowl burned out and crumbled in the late 80's. I kept the pipe in the hope that I might someday repair it. You have helped me do that. George Bieda WA, USA
thanks so much for writing back. I just received this message now. I did receive the beautiful cigar holder with case-- customs had opened the package, but nothing was damaged.
It's gorgeous. Your merchandise is really special. I will order from you again.
Thanks so much.
Murshida VA Sherman Oaks, CA USA
You are awesome! I am smoking my new Claw Foot mini pipe as I type…
It is beautiful and a fine smoke. I cannot believe how fast it got here.
And thank you so much for the gift… you should not have done that.
Hi, I received my pipe today. I love it to death. I was gonna keep it in the clear wrap and make myself suffer till a special occasion coming up before I unwrap it and smoke it. Should the clear wrap be taken off soon? Will it hurt the pipe if it's left on? This will be for a good month before I unwrap it. Thank you again for my beautiful pipe!
Sincerely, Kirk Shanoian NJ, USA
I recently purchased a Pocket Calabash from you and received earlier this week. I bought it from your website "Meerschaum Market" and was wondering how to leave you feedback. You all deserve my highest praise for such a quality pipe. From the moment of unboxing to the first smoke this pipe has delivered at every end. It has excellent air flow and smokes so cool allowing you to really enjoy the many subtle flavors that can me masked or distorted with a lesser pipe. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with doing business with your company. You shipping was incredibly fast and efficient and the end products speaks for itself......pure quality. I look forward to doing business with you in the future and if there is a way I can leave positive feedback for you on ebay (even though I bought from the online store) please let me know!
Thank you again Travis Woods Anchorage AK, USA
WOW!! That's what I call service!! I will be ordering a couple more pipes from you in the near future.
Paul Dodsworth CO, USA
I recieved the pipe today.BEAUTIFULL!Thanks for quick shipment.I'm living on a small fixed income,but hope to buy more as soon as I can.

Even if I'm not able to get more I even enjoy admiring them on line.Not the same but even so I still enjoy it.You have been blessed with a great talent.I did leave positive feedback.I don't usually leave feedback unless I'm very impressed with an item or seller. Bad on my part I know. Thanks again Duane Duane Bourland MO, USA
I received the pipes, thank you. They all are outstanding!!!!!!! The pictures don't do them justice.

This is a reputable company to deal with. I had a problem with the size of a cigar holder and they happily exchanged it.
I highly recommend them for price/quality/service/and fairness!
Bart Bartleson - Sun City Texas
I want to tell you that my father got the pipe you made today (us marine corp) and it made him tear up. He has never been so overjoyed over anything. He collects your pipes and shared the story of your pipe making with me and told me all of the details of the pipe I had bought for him. He served 3 tours in Vietnam and teaches military strategies to new soldiers that serve our country (to this day)....He is a wonderful man and I am so grateful that I could get him such a wonderful gift as the one you provided for me. I have never seen him happier and I thank you from my heart.
Best Wishes and Thank you.
robin moses - OR, United States
I'm sorry it's taken so long to provide feedback on my purchases. But there was a small mix up in the shipping address and it was shipped to my parents and i didn't want to thank you until i actually received them. i got them in the mail today and they were both as beautiful as i expected them to be. The Chinese wise man was much larger than i expected and the half bent plain was smaller than i expected but even so i'm still very satisfied with my purchases and i cant wait till another one catches my eye
Brad - CAMP PENDLETON, United States
Burak and Mr. Baglan,
May I say I was rendered speechless upon opening the pipe case! The carving a definite labor of love. I am embarrassed of my "best offer" and Mr. Baglan's work is worth every penny charged! My husband has a few other meerschaum pipes, one brought back from a trip to Turkey, and NONE of them can hold a flicker to this beautiful piece of art! He too will be speechless come Christmas morning! Thank you for a great shopping experience and you and Mr. Baglan will be the only choice when we further his meershaum pipe collection!
Sheryl Greene Summerville SC , United States
Thank you very much Burak. I received the pipe today, and everything seems to be in order. It's a beautiful pipe. I've seen several of this type (elephant with the stem as it's trunk), and this one definitely stood out from the rest. The detail and craftsmanship is wonderful, and as you said, the pictures don't do it justice it's truly a work of art. I've already given it a smoke and it does give a nice cool, dry smoke, and the ears - perhaps unintentionally - act as a sort of nice, cool handle. Please give Mr. Baglan my regards, and I hope to do business with you again.
Harrison Brown Knoxville TN USA
Ijust received my pipe bowl today 1-21-2013. I am VERY pleased with it, it fits like a glove and smokes very well. I am shocked with the 4 day turn around. I just paid for the bowl last thursday 1-17-2013 and I received it today, that was fast. I would also like to thank you again for all the help that you have given me. If I buy any meerschaum pipe or bowl it will be from you.
You have made me very happy. I also have left you great feed back on E-Bay.
Thanks again, Jessie Phoenix AZ USA
Thanks for the email update. It was a pleasure doing business with you also. I added meerschaummarket to my favorites list at ebay. I am sure we will be doing business again. Please give me a review on ebay too. Also, sell that toilet pipe so you can have a new one made for me.
Thanks Again, Jeff CA USA
Not a question; I just wanted to express to you my appreciation over our transaction. The pipe was not as advertised - it was even more amazing. You should have given me some frame of reference on size. And it got to me in San Francisco in only 4 days.
This was probably the best transaction I have ever had on eBay. I will recommend you to friends and always be appreciative.
Thanks! Steven Birer Mill Valley CA USA
I have received the pipe today. What a wonderfull pipe! Thank you very much for this very EXCELLENT transaction. Everything was perfect. Have a perfect day. Best regards. MARTALO Fabian –Belgium

Hi Burak, this morning at 9h 30m, I received the package.Your service is impeccable, perfect., and your care for the client is unbeatable.I have opened a forum thread pipe, most visited, dedicated exclusively to you and your website, so that everyone knows the great products you offer, and your impeccable behavior with your customers.
Good morning. I received the eagle's claw pipe this afternoon, 3/4/2013. I was able to track the pipe from shipment to delivery, and it arrived very quickly and in top condition. I have not tried it out yet, but plan to this week.

I received these on the 26th, you were right more beautiful in person!!. I have been breaking in the 50 ring gauge piece. I cannot believe more people do not use these. What a pleasure to use, and makes the experience even more pleasurable.
Shipping was very fast, and I really got more than I paid for!!
Thank you so much

Received the pipe today. I merely wanted to let you know that I am completely pleased with it - very proud of it. This has to be the Meerschaum
of Meerschaum pipes. I bought it to smoke, but admiring it now I'm not sure. It may go on display with some other Meerschaum pipes. Don't know yet.
It is one pretty pipe.
JDF OK, USA.

I received the pipe before the weekend, and it looks and feels better than what I could have imagined from the pictures. I will be presenting it to my father this week on his birthday and am very excited about seeing the expression on his face. I hope he enjoys smoking it too.
Thanks again for everything,
Brian - Superior WI USA
I have received my pipe today, it is beautiful, thank you for this work
Congratulations! and I wish you a good holiday.
CHEVRON 75017 PARIS
Please allow me to start by saying that in owning and smoking this pipe for a few months now, I have come to cherish it very much. Of course, it is a pleasure to smoke from, but it is quite apparent from the elegant and PERFECT consistency of the finish that whoever carved it put a tremendous amount of effort, love, and creativity into crafting it.
That said, I would very much like to enjoy this incredible work of smoking art for many years to come. So, I am wondering--how would you recommend taking care of the mahogany to insure that it does not crack, come apart at the seams where the wood changes, or lose color over time?
Also, I noticed you sell spare meerschaum bowls in your shop. Which size is most appropriate for this particular pipe?
Thank you and please advise,
Hello my friend. I hope this email finds you well. I received my pipe last Friday, August 30th. It is amazing! I haven't smoked out of it yet. Every time I take it out I just look at it in awe. It is an awesome pipe, a work of art, and worth every second of the wait. I want to say thank you again. I tell someone almost everyday about you and your business. I also tell them about you honesty and integrity. I will check back in with you after I smoke the pipe. I need to get a really good tobacco, something I haven't tried yet. Thank you again, Burak. Talk to you soon,
Shannon NY,NY USA
I got the replacement pipe today. Thank you very much for your prompt attention and speedy service. I have never seen such rapid service from anyone. You are a man of your word and obviously a trustworthy businessman. Your reputation will stay with you all of your life and I will always give you a glowing 5 star recommendation concerning the way you do business. The pipe is almost an exact recreation (with a few discrepancies). Again, thank you very much Burak.
Michael Deaton – Knoxville, TX USA
I received the pipe and although I don't smoke I appreciate fine craftsmanship when I see it. This is truly a work of art. I cannot comprehend the genius that went into creating this piece. Thank you for making this available.
Lee Kushman Lancaster PA USA
Thank you sir, I did receive the replacement pipe in good order. I thank you for your integrity. I am thoroughly enjoying the cavalier pipe I purchased from you and it is coloring nicely.
Ct. Francesco Montonati Trinidad CO USA
Burak...the dragon head pipe came yesterday. I let the package warm up overnight and opened it today. Please tell Ismael Baglan "thank you" for his beautiful work. I have now purchased Meerschaums from 3 people on Ebay. The reason that I prefer dealing with you is that you show the exact pipe that I am buying, and you show plenty of pictures from every angle, top, bottom, front, sides, etc. Thank you also for the extra fittings that you mailed in a box, and the ones with the new pipe. I will anxiously wait to see pictures of the new smoky mouth dragon pipe signed by I. Baglan. Best regards, Philip Brady
PHILIP BRADY EVANSVILLE IN United States
Thank you for sending me such a great product! I am very happy and blown away with the quality of your product. I am happy with my purchase and I will buy from you again next time.
Andrew Mehas Covington KY USA
Hi Burak, the pipe arrived this morning at 7:00 a.m., Tuesday. It is awesome, trul beautiful. Mr. Baglan does a super job and the bee's wax finish with patina really does make the pipes he carves on of a kind. I will have to pick out another to put on my "buy when I get enough money together" list. Thanks my good friend and fine man Burak. Mike …... Brownwood TX USA
The Shakespeare pipe is beautiful!!! Thank you for your excellent job of packing; it arrived safe and sound this afternoon. I can't wait to show it to some of my friends! Peggy
Peggy L. KelleyVinton IA USA
Thank you! This pipe is beautiful! I am a poet and my family has a metal sculpture studio, so I well understand craftsmanship. I smoke a pipe occasionally, just to relax. This long stem is in a painting I have from a Swedish artist. I always wondered about long stem pipes. It was nearly impossible to choose a pipe from your selection. I also admire the Goat, Renaissance, Rose, and the simpler Whale pipes. But lions are my favorite animals since childhood. I might purchase another one someday.Cynthia RothMurphysboro IL USA
Thank you for the beautiful pipe and very quick shipping
Captain Crosby New York USA
Good news - my pipe has arrived safely.
What can I say?... It is amazing! Sevket is a true artist - to be able to carve such a pipe is a gift.
Perhaps you will pass on my thanks when you next speak with him.
I will be buying from you again when I saved my cash.
In the meantime, my best wishes and thanks,
Anthony HooperBridgend United Kingdom
Just a short note to let you know that I have received the I. Baglan Pipe earlier this week and as usual I am very pleased with the pipe. The details in the pipe are exceptional and the pipe smokes very well. The shipping, as usual, was fast. I will definitely do more business with the Meerschaum Market in the future.
Mitchell Fortney - Calgary - CANADA
I received the pipe today and am very pleased. Truly, it is a work of art and quality craftsmanship. This pipe is a gift to my best friend. I know he'll be pleased with it.
Don Harrison TEMPLE GA USA
Pipes just arrived in perfect condition and they are beautiful. Am sure that my friend will enjoy his Navy pipe. Packing was excellent and shipping took less than 3 days. Very impressive.
Am still debating with myself the purchase of the 6 remaining pipes that have caught my eye. I could buy some on October 1 and the others on October 8, but I may have to subtract a pipe. Is it possible to use my credit card directly and not go through PayPal? I have to find out if they charge fees for using the credit card.
Thank you for the superior service.
I can't tell you how pleased I am with the Topkapi Calabash. It is magnificent and I am astonished at how quickly it arrived. I will definitely be ordering more pipes from you in the future.
Charles de Wotan Portsmouth, VA - USA
I have been away from home on a business trip. The insert and cigar holders did safely arrive.
They are absolute works of art.
Thank you for your responses and support.
I have left you five star rating and intend to continue purchasing from you.
Jerry - NV, USA
I received the pipe today. First, let me thank you for the speedy delivery - the shipping was fast.
Now, the pipe itself - Wow!!! The photos of the pipe are nice, but they don't do it justice. Seeing the pipe in my hand is, well, awesome!! :):):)
Cheers!! Mitchell F - Calgary - CANADA _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Thank you for all your help. I have received the pipe this morning and it isGREAT.
I passed the cleaner as you recommended and that works wonderful.Thank you for fast delivery.
Great to do business with you and will do so in future too.
Husein - TX USA.
My pipe arrived sagely this morning and i am overjoyed with it. The new stem is perfect. It is exactly what i had in mind. Thank you so much.
I am travelling to Norway at the week end ( my wife is Norwegian) and i can't wait to take my Turkish viking back to his spiritual home by the Fjords for his first smoke.
Although i have smoked a pipe for about 25 years, this is my first Meerschaum. I feel both excited and slightly intimidated. It is such a beautiful thing, i am terrified of damaging it. Still, now i have it, it has to be smoked!
Once again, thank you so much. I will contact you again when my viking needs a friend.
Marc Florent - London - UK
I received this pipe today, I love it!
Jason - Shenzen, Gouandong CHINA
I just wanted to drop you a note to say the pipe arrived safe and sound. Not only is it a stellar looking pipe, but it is a brilliant smoker as well! I just wanted to say thanks for the great service and the fast shipping. I'm a briar lover at heart, but love the smoke a meerschaum pipe gives. I'm on the lookout for a Viking/Norseman styled meer, and if the right pipe comes up, I'll be giving you my custom first. Thanks again for the great service!
Ryan - Kamloops, BC, Canada
Package arrived last night and I opened it tonight. I am very pleased. Thank you so much! It looks better than pictured and it arrived very quickly just like you said it would. Scott will be pleased to have such a nice pipe in his collection.
Yvonne W. TX, BArtlett USA
I received this set today, and appreciate the extremely fast shipping. I wanted to tell you in a message how impressed I am with the quality of this set...they are truly pieces of art. Thank you again.Jerod Ray, MO USA
I received the pipes yesterday in perfect shape. thank you. mr. sevket's pipe is without a doubt the most enjoyable pipe i've ever smoked. mr. baglan's pipe was almost too beautiful to smoke. but i smoked it too. thank them both for me.
Alan, Washington USA
Recieved the pipe today - absolutely incredible, the carving work is amazing!! Postage was very, very fast! Can I use the pipe for pipe tobacco too?
Bryn - London, UK
Just received my Vine-Yard Meerschaum pipe, and I want to sincerely thank you for working with me as so I could purchase. This is such a beautiful pipe, the artist/carver has done a marvelous work.
I am so pleased the stem is a twist-in, (and NOT a screw that predominately tighten-up out of line).
Very fine creation my appreciations to the maker and seller.
Country Doug - Mountain View MO, USA
Got the pipe today love it. You are top seller of quality product.
Cameron Mcculley - TN, USA
Good morning burak,
I'm pleased to confirm that the pipes arrived yesterday (23/9/15) and they look fantastic. I'm extremely pleased with them. Both are stunning and I look forward to many years of use from them. Due to the quality of them, I'm going to save you as a seller and I hope to be able to buy from you again in had future.
Thank you again and I will be recommending you and your products on several of the Facebook groups I belong to. Hopefully I may be able to drive some business your way.
Hope to deal again soon and thanks again,
Gary Mitchell - Carlisle Cumbria, United Kingdom
Thank you so much for this beautiful pipe I'm more satisfied than I expected! This is a true work of art.

Cinnamon Austin - Bear Creek Township PA - USA 12/18/2015
I received the Caribbean Pirate pipe carved by I. Baglan yesterday and it was a great surprise! This is my 4th pipe from MeerschaumMarket and it certainly will not be my last. I was excited to have paid for it on Monday and I had the pipe delivered on Thursday…thank you for that. The pipe is excellent, actually bigger than I expected. The detail in the carving is fantastic! I have my eye on some other pipes you have listed on eBay and I’ll contact you when I am ready to purchase.
I also need to find a good pipe rack to display these pipes when I’m not using them. It’s hard to find a stand that shows off the artistry of large meerschaum pipes and I’ll keep looking.
Thanks again for the great quality product and the fast shipping. I’ll be in touch.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
Matt & Melanie Walters HAttiersburg, MS - USA
