All of my pipes are made by hand, shaped on a grinding or sanding wheel.  I do not turn my pipes on a lathe, therefore a perfect circle is rarely found on one of my pipes - except for the chambers and drilling, of course.  I try to keep a somewhat organic, free-flowing feel to my pipes.  I do not fill in spots or imperfections in the briar, rather I'll have it sand-blasted or simply leave it, as long as the rest of the grain allows this.  I guarantee my craftsmanship for the life of the pipe.  If you would like to see a pipe "live'' before buying it, I welcome setting up a Skype meeting, to show a pipe better and answer any questions you might have.  Thanks for looking and feel free to contact me.
