I don't have mitch to compare with, but you cant beat the price!

It's ok.
I bought this because it was inexpensive and I'm just a "once in a while" pipe guy who is still learning. I already owned two decent pipes and wanted a third to add into a rotation. The pipe is fairly decent and light. It looks cool too. The only issue I have is how the stem just into the bowl at the bottom, taking up space and making packing tobacco kind of awkward for someone who is still trying to perfect that skill. Beyond that, it's ok and at least feels a little better quality than a corn cob, IMO.

Awesome.
they are very good for what they've been designed for, very good for 10 mins pipe smoking. I like them.

Superb Starter
I was immensely impressed by the quality of this product. It had a classically sophisticated appearance and felt balanced and comfortable in my hand. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a solid investment.

2 down 2 to go
I love these little pipes. They are lightweight and easy to work with when working around the shop. The one thing you have to get used to though and this will go away after time is the taste of the shank going into the bowl. As long as you give it a couple extra puffs at the beginning of breaking it in the taste will go away. If you are used to a cob you will love this pipe.

Basic pipe
Great pipe for the money very basic only problem is I wish the didn’t varnish the inside of the bowl I had to sand mine to avoid the nasty taste of varnish while smoking

Not bad
Not a bad little Pie smokes a little Hot but once its broke in it has a good taste.

Can't go wrong with this one
Don't let the price of this pipe fool you it is a great smoking pipe. If you break it in slow over the course of a couple weeks before loading up a full bowl this lightweight pipe makes a really good all day pipe. Missouri Meerschaum took what could have been a bad shortage of cobs into another masterpiece when it comes to no frills pipes. I myself am growing my collection of both their signiture cob and now their hardwood pipes. So go ahead and stop contemplating adding it to your cart and go ahead and get two or three you will not be disappointed.

Would not buy again.
Stem was 1/8 of an inch above bottom of bowl keeping me from smoking all the tobacco. Whatever finish is on bowl gets sticky when hot. Stem broke at mouthpiece after a week.

DEFINITELY worth the money!
Bowl doesn't heat up excessively when you smoke it. Very good draw. Kind of hard to keep lit, but other than that no complaints for an inexpensive pipe. If I, or you, ever need a quick, cheap replacement pipe, this is the go-to!

Meh
The one I got is not airtight and it's clogged like it's not drilled out properly. It's draw is horrible. I have lots of MM pipes and I love them. I'm really disappointed with this one. I got a lemon.

Not for everyone.
It's alright. I dislike the fit-up, but construction is well done. Seems to burn out more and more as I get to the dottle. The last of any blend is made harsher by this. Worth the money for a pipe to use on the factory floor.

Great for the money, if not a little hot.
This is a pretty nice little pipe. I got myself the straight Maple finish pipe. First of all, the pipes are not made of cherry or maple, that's just the finish that's on the wood. Let me start by saying the pipe I've got can burn a little hot, but with some slow easy smoking it can be managed pretty easily. I was initially wary of the Ozark due to some reports of excess varnish on the inside of the bowl, but I had no such issues, and frankly the inside of my bowl was about as clean as a man can hope. The pipe I recieved also has a bit of bowing, the bit (as Missouri Meerschaum calls it) fits a bit crooked, but it took me a while to even notice. It smokes pretty well but the heat can get a little out of hand if you're too quick with it, It's also a very light-weight pipe, and so I imagine the bent stem model would make for a great clencher. All things considered its a fantastic pipe for the money, especially considering you are in fact getting a WOODEN pipe. it has a great hand feel to it, and I can feel the wood grain ever so slightly on the bowl. Its just a pleasant little pipe.

Won't buy again
Smokes ok. Taste each blend with no problem. Horrible design. There gaps inside the bowl..hard to smoke bowl to the end. Do not like how it's bored out.

Good price. Good pipe.
First time pipe smoker here and this is the first pipe I have ever used. The pipe had a very strong varnish/shine or whatever it is flavor during the first smoke but after a quick clean of the bowl with alcohol and a few smokes that went away. Very fast shipping. I am happy with this purchase and did not get 5 stars only because of the initial wierd flavor. You will not regret buying this pipe!!! Cheers.

GREAT LITTLE SMOKER!!
LOVED THIS LITTLE PIPE. FINALLY BURNED IT UP. IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE DRAW USING A FILTER, TAKE YOUR SCISSORS AND CUT AN INCH OR SO OFF.... IT WORKED FOR ME... I CUT THEM HALF IN TWO, MAKING 2 FILTERS.... I CHANGED" MINI FILTERS" EVERY 2 BOWLS........

Something Different
It burns a little hot and there is a definitely a slight taste from the stain during the first bowls. This is something you buy just to break up the rut of going from cob to briar. With a little sanding and a decent break in it should be a fun pipe for a shorter smoke.

Small and lightweight
Small and lightweight. It's difficult to draw when filtered, but great unfiltered. The small bowl smokes hot if you're not careful, but this the price of a very light, clench-able pipe. I prefer these bent MM models as the stem's lower position in the bowl gives less dottle, smoking more completely. The initial varnish taste disappears after about two bowls, and is then pleasantly sweet. As with the other lightweight hardwoods, it's perfect for walking about and doing chores.
3 out of 5
Small and lightweight
It's lightweight, inexpensive, and suitable as a chore pipe. As with other MMs, I find the models difficult to draw when filtered but perfectly fine when the filter is removed. The entry of the stem to the bowl seems a bit high as well, again similar to other MM straight models I own. I end up with more dottle with straight stemmed MMs in general. The bowl smokes a bit hot compared to medium sized MM cobs since the bowl is smaller in outside diameter than most cobs. There's some varnish taste for the first bowl or two as you break it in, but it then chars up nicely and gives a decent sweet smoke.
5 out of 5
Number one in my pipe rotation.
Great lightweight pipe. Smokes great and is easy to hold in your teeth. The only suggestion I can make is be patient while breaking it in. It does taste a little like wood stainy at first. Run a bowl or two through it and then char it a bit with a torch type lighter. Once you broken it in you'll love it.

Couldn't ask for much more for four bucks. Seems a well made little pipe. I ordered two of these to keep on hand as "guest" pipes so I've not smoked them yet.

Good Utility Pipe
Pretty good pipe for the workshop or outside while working. Small enough bowl and very light. Prefer corn-cob pipes over these, but for a few bucks who would complain.

Good budget pipe. Did a coat of honey to break it in, works great. Don't get hot with aromatics, great size to fit in your pocket.

Replacement
Bought a new one to replace the old one that burned a hole through the stem. Too early to tell what I think about it. I like the pipe, it's not heavy and smoke real well with Brigadier Black-Gettysburg pipe tobacco.

"Smallest pipe I've smoked thus far!"
"After trying this little M.M. Ozark Hardwood minature Cherry for a bit, I think its good for when you don't have a lot of time and need only a short smoke, which is good as far as this little pipe is concerned. I would notice a little moisture in the pipe stem after a while, and have used a pipe cleaner to help with that. I recommend that to anyone who uses any pipe for that matter! Keep up the good work Missouri Meeschaum!"

Doesn’t smoke well, hard to clean
Don’t know why, but goes out when my other MMs keep up. Burns hot. Also difficult to get into the stem to clean. Other MMs have been great, and in fact, I love the oak-like luster they take on the more you use one. This one, I think, is too light.
5 out of 5
Excellent Pipe
I keep returning to this pipe. Very light weight, easy to clean, a sitter, and takes a bowl of 'backy without a problem. Scrape off any vanish with a pen-knife, clean the bowl with your favorite booze, and pack a bowl. A little hot sometimes? Yeah, but it feels nice on the hands. It's so cheap, you feel like you stole it. There's no gloss like a briar, but there's a rustic Americana charm to a maple-wood pipe. Makes you feel like Davy Crockett rather than Sherlock Holmes.

Cheap Pipe
Not real happy with the pipe. The only good thing about it is the price. When I smoked my first bowl, it tasted like varnish. Have smoked it a couple more times and while taste has gotten a little better it still ruins the flavor for the whole bowl.

Great first pipe
I bought this pipe a year ago as my first pipe and have enjoyed many bowls since. I wanted a cheap pipe to get started, but corn cobs aren't my style and I didn't know enough about estate pipes to feel comfortable buying one. This was a great alternative and got me hooked into the pipe hobby!

Burns hot, hot to handle, cheap price but not recommended
This is one of three MM pipes that I own (I also have Country Gentleman & MacArthur 5-star cob pipe). It is my least favorite of the MM line. It burns incredibly hot and essentially ruins my tobacco experience. It gets hard to handle when hot and often find that I need to wear hand protection (ie gloves) just to smoke it. I plan on throwing this one away once I have a more extensive pipe collection, or just displaying it as non-functional piece. I do not recommend this pipe.

Excellent Working Pipe
I purchased the Ozark Hardwood Cherry Bent pipe. I absolutely love it! One, I like that it is lightweight. I'm a female pipe smoker who prefers smaller, more lightweight pipes over heavier ones. Two, I like the price point. If it breaks, oh, well. No big deal. Three, it smokes very well. I haven't had any problems with the draw.
5 out of 5
Super value
This pipe does great for me and has lasted for weeks of use. I did not sand off the finish inside the bowl, as some have recommended, and it made no difference. This pipe smokes decently and is way more durable than its price would suggest.

Ozark Hardwood Cherry Bent
These are awesome hardwood pipes & for a price you just can't beat. I ordered 1 of each, but gave one set as a gift. I'm really enjoying the Ozark Hardwood Cherry Bent that I kept. It's an awesome smoker with a slightly larger bowl than a Legend.

It's smokes fine, however it is exceedingly small therefore there's is a lot of bite when smoking. It smokes very hot and the bowl gets very hot but I must say it is perfect for a 15 minute smoke.

not a good pipe
Missouri Meerschaum's Miniature Maple Ozark is a silly novelty pipe that doesn't even come close to the quality of a cheap corn cob pipe. This is a novelty pipe that would be good for being a part of a costume or something. It's not a good pipe for smoking.
4 out of 5
Decent little pipe
A decent little backup pipe that gets the job done. For the cost you can keep an extra one anywhere. They heat up too fast to be a full duty pipe but are good for a quick smoke.

A Winner!
Despite owning other pipes, I keep coming back to this humble Maple Straight over everything else. While it's true that the bowl can get hot, the light-weight and small bowl size works really well for me. Easy to set down on a desk with no fuss. No cracks or issues. Scrape the initial lacquer out of the bowl with a penknife and clean the bowl with your favorite booze (tequila in my case). The price is practically free. You can own a dozen of these without breaking a sweat.

Excellent overall
Best prices - Check Great quality - Check Quick service - Check I had to give up cigarettes a decade ago and gradually picked up cigars. My doctors threatened to shoot me if I continued puffing on my beloved stogies, so I had to stop even the occasional pricier stuff, BUT I REFUSED TO TOSS OUT MY PIPES and found the ideal place to get them new or from estates along with all their goodies. My doctors may be grumbling, but I'm once more a happy man thanks to Pipes & Cigars.

Just a good smoking cheap pipe...
Well what to say, I got the MM Ozark because i wanted a wood pipe other then my granddads Grabow. upon me getting it and starting to use it, noticed that it burned cooler like a corn cob pipe and smoked really good. only reason why i rate this item at a 4 over a 5 is because they have that birch stave in the bottom like MM corn cobs do and for the first few smokes, it is very bitter once you get to the stave. but once that stave is charred then it smokes great and looks pretty to.

Missouri Meerschaum Ozark hardwood cherry pipe
Ordered the bent and straight model. The bowl is on the smaller side, but good for a quick smoke. As others have said, need to sand down the inside bowl a bit until you hit wood. Did not get all the stain out, which left a sour-bitter taste. After a while got good smoke results. For $3.99 it is a good pipe to go to when tinkering around knowing it might get bumped around. Do not need to use the filter. Would buy again if I need an inexpensive pipe.

A great cheap pipe for heavy smokers.
Possibly the best cheap pipe I've ever smoked from. One will last me nearly a month before I toss it, where as most corn cobs and other cheap woods end up cracking in half from heat.
Customer Testimonials
M&M cherry hardwood. I like this pipe so much I ordered a 2nd one. I like it better than the M&M maple. It seem taste better!
This is great and well priced good deal !
Great little pipe, especially for the price. The hardwood presence is definitely there when you take a drag with a new pipe and I thought that would be a problem. After a few bowls this was no longer an issue and this pipe has become one of my regular go tos for a quick smoke!
Very nice pipe, i like it. Super fast shipping too. Happy customer.
Bad ass backyard cutting the grass pipe also for fishing. Smoke well draws well for the price a good deal.
Can you find a better pipe for $4? Nope. I was happy with the aesthetics. the cherry bent i bought really is pleasing to behold, especially considering the price point. So far it has smoked like a champ, offering much more than a $4 should. my only gripe was that my stem was pretty darn loose. beeswax I am told is the fix for this. My bet is that most of these offerings have a nice tight stem and mine was a bit of a dud. Every other MM pipe I've bought has been solid so I am overlooking this. This one smokes just fine and for $4 i will invest in more. Don't hesitate to buy this!
Stop thinking about it and just get one or two. You won't regret it.
Good pipe for the money. The bowl is on the small side. The bit on mine was extremely loose (used some boiling water to swell the stem and re-size the bit). Smokes really nice for a small pipe. I'm a big fan of MM cobs, and the Ozark is almost as nice. This little pipe will find a home in my motorcycles saddlebag.
Awesome little pipe. It 's s great smoker for a little price.
Nothing fancy, but it smokes. This is a good pipe if you want to smoke while doing outside chores.
A very good working mans pipe. Light weight, well put together, does not smoke hot or wet. Only thing I did not like was the bowl is varnished but the wood stem is only stained. I fixed that with some wipe on poly varnish though. One tip is to take some sandpaper and sand the inside of the bowl to get the varnish off. Makes the break in smokes more pleasing on your palate. I look forward to many smokes and this is going to be my bang around pipe.
As others have mentioned, you need to sand the extra lacquer from the inside of the bowl, but I love this little pipe. Its easy to handle and the perfect size for an after work smoke during my 20 minute commute. I'm going to get another one.
Purchased the Ozark Hardwood Maple Straight. Under $5!! Along with scraping off the varnish (easy to do with a pocket-knife), I cleaned the bowl with Cuervo Gold. This is America's little secret.
I love this pipe, it's cheap it can be smoked all day with out a problem. I choose this pipe more then some of my more expensive briar wood pipes.
I agree with the majority of the reviews above. Super little pipe for the money. I too took some sandpaper to the inside of the bowl when it arrived. First bowl of tobacco I could taste a tinge of the varnish. After that, Eureka! Will be ordering some more of these.
This pipe smokes as well as my way more expensive briars. I love this one so much that I just ordered a 2nd one. It does have a light coat of stain on the inside that I removed in less than a minute with the spay blade of my peanut trapper pocket knife. Pack it light and it stays pretty cool. I did notice a wood taste (that I found pleasant) on the 1st couple of bowls. I also removed the filter and find this to smoke smooth with no moistness in the bottom. It has become my go to pipe most of the time. Great for any price and a steal at under $10. Just clean the bowl before smoking and pack light, then you have a great smoking pipe that looks good, too. I highly recommend it.
Great little pipe!!! I read the reviews and sanded the bowl out. It works and taste great. I will get some more of these.
I want to love this pipe, but I hate it. The aesthetics of it are nice for a very cheap pipe. I was expecting that because of the design that it would offer a smoking experience similiar to a corn cob. Boy was I ever wrong! I've read about the staining making it into the inside of the bowl. I have a nice thin layer of char on the inside walls of this thing and every single time I smoke it I get a nasty wood burning taste. This pipe makes all of my blends taste the same with bitter and acrid smoke. The only blend I have been able to taste is a Dunhill English blend with adequate amounts of Latakia. Save your money and get a cob.
Besides having varnish in the bowl, which I removed with sand paper. It's a nice little pipe for everyone. Especially when trying new tobaccos. I pre-carbonized it overnight, then enjoyed my first taste of Sutliff's (Private Stock) Molto Dolce. Nice little pipe and extremely good aromatic tobacco.
..A great value for this quality hardwood pipe !
This is really a great little pipe! It looks good and smokes nice. Very light and easy to hold between the teeth. Not as much break in time required as for the maple pipes. I would like to have one with a larger bowl, such as the maple Diplomat.
Beautifull smaller pipe for a very good price. Light weight to me put together very well. If you are wanting a good priced good quality product I highly recommend any thing made by Mo Merschaum.
Too small and too thin not a big fan
Very basic but good smoke. The finish is a bit rough but for the price a winner.
First time smoking with a pipe its perfect for it's price and is great
Broke this pipe in tonight with Pete st sweet vanilla,I have to agree a very nice pipe,my new favorite,I'm going to order a bunch more since I now have a good variety of tobaccos,and it takes a 6mm filter,very very nice and for me the bowl is just right. PEACE!
awesome small pipe! great for a quick smoke. definitely recommend you add this to your collection
I've had one of these for a couple of months now and it's done its duty better than I ever thought a $4 pipe could. Now that it's broken in, I feel like I can take it wherever I go and not worry about it like I would my nicer briar. I have no doubt this will outlast a corn cob at a similar price.
not a bad pipe for the money. I did need to sand off the varnish from the inside of the bowl. Once some cake gets built up I'm sure it'll taste fine once its broken in.
I have been absolutely blown away by the MM Maple Ozark pipe (full size). I almost hate to admit it (because I love my briars), but this has got to be the most versatile, best smoking pipe I own. I initially resited trying this pipe because of other reviews I had read claiming the "thick lacquer" on the inside of the bowl imparted a bitter, chemical taste to the smoke. Intrigued by the neat look and ridiculously low price, I finally decided there was really nothing to lose in trying it - and man am I glad I did! The pipe I received did indeed have lacquer inside the bowl, but was not at all thick or hard, and within about five minutes with some 150 grit sandpaper, I had the bowl sanded down to the bare maple. I also replaced the stem with Danish amber stem (a $0.50 upgrad from MM that really makes the pipe look sharp and more comfortable to clench). There was absolutely NO break-in period with this pipe, and from the very first smoke I tasted no ill-effects to the tobacco, with just a very subtle, pleasant sweetness added by the maple wood (very similar to a Cobb). With the paper filter removed, the draw is perfectly smooth and open, making any tobacco I've tried in it burn perfectly with cool, dry smoke. The maple seems to be very absorbent; this coupled with the small space below the stem insert at the bottom of the bowl create and absolutely DRY smoke from start to finish - NO gurgling or tars up the stem. I had expected the bowl to be rather small, but I was surprised to find that though it is only about 1.2" deep, it is rather wide, allowing for plenty of tobacco and a long smoke (I had a burley blend last for 55 minutes while smoking slowly). In my opinion, with the upgraded stem, this pipe is much more handsome than a cobb, far more durable, lighter and very comfortable to clench hands-free - the perfect "walking the dog pipe." At less than $5.00, I plan to order several more of these and keep one with me at all times. Do not hesitate - BUY THIS PIPE.
Awesome pipe! For $4 you cannot beat this guy. Lightweight, doesn't but too hot, easy to clench, not much up-keep, and looks like you fit right in driving around the mountains of Eastern Tennessee. It is wonderful to have lying around and I will be getting a few more for gifts, and also just to have around.
