What’s it carved out of?

I have an old briar wood pipe from 1950’s was actually brand new found in a wharehouse.

Was always thinking of carving a pipe myself.

Check out some of these, a little extreme but cool.

I don’t smoke, but i think i’m gonna have to try and make one. Did you carve the mouth piece yourself or is it pre-made?

What is the wood? In the midwest where I live we have plenty of a really hard wood called osage orange, or hedge, which I always thought would work as a pipe.
