The MacArthur 5-Star Polished Bent Corn Cob Pipe from Missouri Meerschaum has a more finished appearance version of the 5-Star Natural. Consequently, it is not historically accurate (but we like it anyway). Its shortened tobacco chamber and extended shank lend itself to an easy smoke, and the bowl extension makes for a great grip! Perfect for armchairs and leisurely afternoons. It comes unfiltered with a bent black bit only.
Call it a quirk if you will, but the General would burn a ring around the shank on every new pipe he received. When President Truman relieved MacArthur at the end of World War II, hundreds of sympathizers besieged us with orders for the iconic 5-Star MacArthur Corn Cob Pipe, and MacArthur’s creation became a legacy. Today we still burn a ring around the shank in his honor.
