Each Pipe is hand crafted, one at a time, in my workshop. No two are alike. Every aspect of their design is carefully considered, from the airway and bowl shape, to the feel of the mouthpiece. They are made to feel balanced, light and comfortable in the hand. Every joint is constructed using a mortise and tenon, and often pinned into place, creating a superior bond. My pipes are not finished with anything, they are sanded and then buffed with buffing compounds to achieve a very smooth surface that retains the natural look, feel, and qualities of the wood. I care about the quality of my pipes and if properly cared for they are built to last a lifetime.
This wood is bright red when first sanded with very interesting grain patterns. Over time (years, in my experience) this wood will change colour with exposure to UV light. The final colour will be between dark red and dark brown. To minimize colour change, keep out of sunlight.
