Nabízí velmi krasné dýmky.
1st class customer service as well as 1st class craftsmanship! Can't recommend highly enough!
Great pipes, excellent service.. I've bought my first meerschaum pipe from Altınay and really enjoyed it. Highly recommended !!
Sorry, i see it has been for the 4th time i have received great professional service.
Thank you once again, 3rd time, Said for the great service, it is highly appreciated for the excellent quality products.
Hey Said My second pipe arrived today a real masterpiece. Have already smoked her and she smokes great. It is certainly not my last pipe that I buy from you.
These are true masterpieces of Turkish craftsmanship.*****!
Hopefully they will survive our time and current mentality of getting everything for (nearly) nothing.
After having bought a wooden pipe here in Cologne I had read so much of “Meerschaum” pipes and their often described high quality that I was curious if that were actually true.
And after smoking it the only thing I can say it does not even compare to other materials.
Full and absolutely unchanged taste of your tobacco is the wonderful result.
Customer service is also excellent; my many questions were answered fast and detailed in a very personal way per email and also Whats App!:-)
Definitely not my last purchase.
Highly recommended original manufacturer in Turkey who deserves your trust.
Lightning speed delivery!
Ülkemizde çıkarılan lüle taşı madeninin kalitesinden hep bahsedilir , ancak bir çok Türk pipo tiryakisinin ortak şikayeti memleketimizde üretilen lüle taşı pipoların işçiliklerindeki özellikle ağazlık kısımlarlarıdaki sıkıntılardır. Geçtiğimiz günlerde Altınay pipo dan üç adet spigot pipo satın aldım gerçektende işçilikleri görünümleri ve sağlamlıklarının harika olduğunu düşünüyorm.Gören arkadaşlarım da kesinlikle hayran kalıyorlar , Firma kolleksiyona yönelik modellerin yanında gündelik hayatta da rahatlıkla kullanılabilecek daha sade modeller konusunda bir çok seçenek sunuyor bu gerçektende çok iyi.Özellikle bent spigot modellerine hayranım.
I am a beginner pipe smoker, and I knew nothing about pipe smoking, pipes, and meerschaum pipes.
I got every information and help in this place.
Present days absolutely unbelievable that somewhere somebody makes great things by hand:) The world is running. But when I see these pipes, the hand made beauties, I am not interested in Running World. Just my pipe, and smoke…
My Altinay Meerschaum pipe:)
I cannot believe my pipe arrived from Turkey to Finland in 28 hours from shipping! This little pipe with a small bowl is just what I was looking for. I must have looked through 200+ meerschaum pipes before finding one that was small enough. And the prize was amazing because of the small size! The pipe smokes great and I am sure I will keep on using this every day. No more resting briar pipes!
Great consultancy at the stage of selecting your piece. They know the visuals can be misleading, so, in order to avoid unintended orders or dissatisfaction, they frankly provide you information about your choice, in case of e-mail communication in advance. Very responsive for questions .Before and after ordering, they inform you about every single step. I live out of Turkey and have my pipe delivered to my brother in Istanbul and the delivery took place in less than 18 hours! Once I try the pipe, I will write more detailed comments.
Another fine Meerschaum from Altinay, I cannot recommend them enough. Great pipes that colour very well and consistent, very fast postage - three days from Turkey from ordering to arrival . And Said answers your emails with additional pictures or measurements within minutes. Great company to deal with.
just what you pictured.
Excellent and timely communication.
I will recommend you highly.
The Meerschaumpipe is wonderful, a high quality product that smokes great. Fastetst delivery ever seen, only 2 working days from Turkey to Italy. Compliments!
I would like to say thank you Said Altinay for your exceptional service and patience. The delivery was also impressive with a very quick and reliable door to door delivery arranged by Said all the way to South Africa.
Thank you once again. Regards
I wish I had this pipe 15 years ago when I started smoking pipes.. It is so comfortable, light weight, well balanced..exceptional work.. and there is absolutely no additonal taste.. worths every penny..
Special thanks for the quick delivery and for the informations.
The pipe is absolutely beautiful. It is perfect down to every last detail. I am so excited to give my friend this incredible gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!! Thank you for your kindness and customer service. You excelled in every way. You truly exceeded all expectations.
Dear Said Altinay,

Ordered an Apple-styled Meerschaum pipe and got it within 3 days (Switzerland). This pipe is amazing. It looks great and the craftsmanship is perfect! This pipe smokes very equably from the beginning to the end. It also comes with an nice fitting transport case. Very recommended. Thank you for this great pipe. Roman, Switzerland
I have received pipes today and they are great. I have bought around 80 meerschaum pipes over the years (I even came to visit Eskisekir once) and I must say that you make the best classic shapes. This billiard is perfect I don't think I ever saw billiard made from meer this good.
I also like how thin the bit of the mouthpiece is.
Thanks again for a great customer service, I'll be buying from you again for sure!!!
I received order # 22189 in November 2018 and I am very happy with this pipe!
It’s my second Altinay pipe and they are both beautiful and give a terrific smoke.
I will be sure to buy another very soon.
Thank you for a fine product.
Quality product, respnsive and helpful staff, quick delivery. Definitely will revisit if I needed a meer pipe again and happy to refer it to friends.

My Thank you to Mr. Altinay and his team.
I ordered again some of your pipes for three other friends who really liked the pipes when they saw it.
Unfortunately, the new package is stuck at the customs in Leipzig again. So, I need the order confirmation with the values you put on the paperwork by email – like last time, that worked pretty well.
Thank you very much in advance and kind regards
As you surely already noticed, the pipes already arrived.
They are really great and look very nice – especially the two skulls.
Thank you very much for the excellent customer service and the tampers!
All the best

The high quality of the sciuma di mare is combined with an artistic taste that gives emotions!
I have been smoking my first Altinay for about three weeks and I am very happy. The pipe is very beautiful, smokes fantastically and is starting to develop a very beautiful patina. Shipping and attention have been very good (order placed on Friday and pipe at home on Monday, from Turkey to Spain).
I received the pipes yesterday. They are beautiful, and I look forward to smoking them for some time. Also, thank you for changing one of the pipes to a 9mm system and for the "little gift" of a cigarette holder.
Peace and goodness always,

The earliest reference to meerschaum in written sources is found in a travel book, written in the XII century. When Eskisehir was a frontier ‘principality’ and a trade centre under the domination of the Turks, ‘Al-Haravi’ an Arabic traveller, visited the city in 1173, and wrote about Eskisehir in his travel book. He mentions the healing thermal waters and meerschaum; however, he does not give any information about who used meerschaum or for what purpose.
This stone’s original Turkish name, ‘Deniz Köpüğü’, was translated into different languages with the same meaning, such as ‘Halos Hachne’ in Greek, ‘Spuma Maris’ in Latin, ‘Schiuma di Mare’ in Italian and ‘Echume de Mer’ in French. The most common translation, ‘Meerschaum’ however, was prefered and widely used, Another description of the material, ‘Die Weisse Göttin’ (The White Goddess-Aphrodite),is a clear sign of the value placed on meerschaum.
Professional meerschaum pipe manufacture was started after the founding of the Republic. Ali Osman Denizköpüğü(1897-1961) opened a workshop in the city centre and had meerschaum mentioned, together with Eskisehir, at both domestic and international fairs. Besides this, he trained many young meerschaum pipe craftsmen.
Meerschaum is the most perfect pipe material in the world, and the most unique and original art and decoration material. It is the only material of value to replace ‘ivory processing’ which is based on hunting and prohibited throughout the world. Having large, and as yet undiscovered, meerschaum reserves underground, Eskişehir is preparing to carry this elegant stone to new heights, as a material for art and culture, in keeping with its character. Now is the time of meerschaum.
