I had the honor of attending the pipe making seminar at the Chicago Pipe Show in ‘13. I got to learn the basic techniques to shaping and finishing a briar pipe from some really awesome guys.
I got to do a sandblasted finish, and I think it came out really great. One guy in class even offered to buy it from me, but I couldn’t give up my first ever pipe. I think I’m going to do the seminar again. It was a great learning experience, and I got to meet several of the greatest American Pipe Makers.
It’s a neat pipe, and I have yet to smoke it. I don’t know that I can bear to put fire to it. It just sits in my antique china cabinet, in all it’s glory. :)
