ABOUT THE MASTER CARVER I. BAGLAN
Ismail Baglan was born at 1953 Eskisehir Turkey. He has been carving for over 30 years since his teenage years. He always used the best quality meerschaum stone and always made the best carvings all over the years. What would you expect from a carver who makes a smoking pipe for you? A good carftsmanship that would make you enjoy your pipe without any trouble for many years? A good talent that would get you surprised after every bowl? A good personality that would make you feel that your pipe has been made by a member of your family? Rest assured, Ismail has these all, at least. This great person, whom I am proud of being a friend of, is around fifty years of age with two girls and one boy in his lovely family making fabulous pipes from his young years. I would greatly recommend you possess one of his excellent pipes if you like to experience what I was trying to express. Meerschaum Market is his offical licenced, exclusive outlet. MeerschaumMarket's exception would be that I have an everday direct contact with him to call his special attention to my requests as he kindly since now.
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT MEERSCHAUM PIPES
Meerschaum is a very rare mineral, a kind of hard white clay. Light and porous structure of the pipe keeps the smoke cool and soft. The pipe itself is a natural filter which absorbs the nicotine. Meerschaum is the most flavorful and beautiful pipe you can own.
Because of this peculiarity, meerschaum pipes slowly change their colors to different tones of gold and dark brown. This adds an esthetic enjoyment to its great smoking pleasure. The longer a pipe is smoked the more valuable it becomes due to the color change. Today many old and rare meerschaums have found a permanent place in museums and private collections.
Pipes are made of high quality Eskisehir Meerschaum which is very well known by experts. Unlike briar, meerschaum does not burn. Meerschaum pipes do not need pre-smoking to have a good quality performance. You can get perfect satisfaction with the very first smoking. Unlike a briar pipe, which must be dried after each smoke, the meerschaum can be smoked many times a day because of its absorbing qualities. Every pipe comes in a completely custom fitted case. All mouthpieces and pipe-cases are handmade individually after the production of the pipes. Each pipe is a hand crafted art of the masters.
