Corn Cob Pipe Like MacArthur

















The 'Mincing Rascal' Celebrates

We're celebrating the 4th of July (and pandering outrageously to our American readers). And what better way than with a corn cob pipe like the one used by General MacArthur? Wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses, and clenching a corn cob pipe steadfastly in his resolute jaw, surely MacArthur — in the photograph above — embodies (in some vague way) all that we hold dear about the USA. 

The Missouri Meerschaum Company produced MacArthur's pipes, and still make them in the US today. 

The straight stem version (below) is unfiltered and has a natural bowl. Fill one with some Virginia brightleaf and start embodying.
