About Our Handmade Briar Pipes
These pipes are carefully handmade one at a time at my shop in Texarkana, Texas. Most of the shapes that I make are neoclassic traditionals. These shapes seem to have an appeal that is timeless. However, I do accept orders for custom shapes, my option.
All of my pipes are lightly stained and buffed with carnauba wax. The tobacco chamber is sanded smooth and uncoated.
I came to pipemaking after 30 years of collecting and smoking fine briar pipes and 20 years of carving realistic waterfowl. I am a self- taught pipe maker. My pipes have built a reputation for fine smoking qualities and easy break-in at reasonable prices. I do not utilize shape charts. I try to capture the best presentation of grain in each block. Each pipe is warranted against burnout for a period of one year.
