This pipe has been carefully crafted in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Our employees, many with more than 40 years in pipe-making, bring a total of some 1400 years of skill to creating the best value-for-quality pipes available in the USA today. Made from quality, natural Mediterranean briar, each pipe passes through 52 production phases, with quality control checks at every stage. Every pipe is unique. Smooth smoking.
Made in USA
Care should be taken when using your new pipe for the first six or seven times. Half fill the bowl for the first few smokes and then alternate between full and half bowls for the next three or four. This allows the heel of the bowl and the bowl itself to develop an even, protective carbon coating which will extend the life of your pipe. Carbon will build up on the inside of the bowl and provide a natural "heat shield" which protects the briar bowl. The carbon layer should be allowed to build up until it is no more than the thickness of a dime. This pipe comes with a free pipe filter already in place. Using a pipe filter regularly will extend the life of your pipe by absorbing the moisture which collects in the pipe bowl..
