Hello friends. This is my first post after a very long time. In last year I start to make tobacco pipe (I quit cigarette smoking and start smoking pipe). My pipes are made from briar wood or cherry wood, with acrylic stem, finished with carnauba wax. For more pictures you can visit my website at I hope you like.

Great looking pipes. They all are crafted very well and have lots of appeal to them.

Those are beautiful and I also love the box. The hinges on it are very nice. What do you sell the pipes for? What’s the price?

Again, very nice workmanship.

OK, I’m intrigued. I too am a pipe smoker. How do I begin?

A symbol of the truly refined gentleman! That and a glass of fine, single malt Scotch Whiskey aged to perfection. After a hard day in the shop. That looks really nice, I am a big fan.

Wow. After only a year you produce highest quality pipes!
How do you get that rough surface on top of the bowl and where the stem goes in?
The face on the case- is it carved? Burned?

Thank you for apreciation. JPZ, the rough surface is the natural “skin” of briar block, and the face on the case is woodburned. By the way, is my face :)
