About the brand
STAR MEERSCHAUM uses only the best grade meerschaum blocks and they go through a 3 phase elimination process to ensure that only the best quality meerschaum is utilized.
- The meerschaum blocks are sourced from the finest meerschaum mine in Turkey : Sarisu (TURKMENTOKAT ) mines in Eskisehir which are known to have highest quality and best grade of meerschaum in Turkey.
- The miners select only the best meerschaum blocks among the hundreds mined from under 100 meters below the surface.
- Then our master carvers even more carefully select the final blocks to be used in our STAR series so that only the very best quality meerschaum is used to carve a STAR Meerschaum Pipe.
STAR meerschaum pipes have a unique engineering system the same as can be found in briar pipes.- Briar type tenons are used in all of their meerschaum pipes. Open draw is a must in a Star meerschaum pipe. The airway must be open and the holes perfectly aligned in the bowl and inside the stem. Pipe Cleaners can pass hassle free and smoothly.- They hate loose stems more than you do. Therefore the stem is connected firmly to the shank with tight push and pull type connection (briar type push and pull Delrin tenons used)
