+About AKB Meerschaum
Who, or what, is AKB? It's the initials of Ali Kerim Bey, James Bond's ally in Istanbul, head of Station T in From Russia with Love. And beyond that, it is also the chosen name for a brand of quality Turkish meerschaum pipes — this one. From simple, smooth classics to ornate motifs, to detailed figural carvings, all rendered in genuine block meerschaum, AKB has a pipe to suit all tastes.
