ABOUT MY PIPES...

My pipes are mostly made of briar or olivewood. Although I don't use other materials as much, there are several pipes made of bog oak (morta), strawberry tree, or some other wood in my collection. Most of my pipes are smoothly finished with glossy shine from carnauba wax. I use all kinds of exotic materials for pipe decorations, mostly deer antlers, horns, boxwood, cocobolo, bocote or some other type of hardwood. Bamboo is also a great material, and I use it sometimes, when pipe design allows such an intervention.

Olive is the other very important material that I use in pipe making. I have several olive pipes in my personal collection and I smoke them very often. Balkan mixtures together with Virginia tobaccos blend beautifully with olivewood, creating softer and milder smoke than having been smoked in briar, for example. The blocks of olivewood that I work with, come from Greece or Italy, and I have a certain amount of Croatian olivewood blocks, harvested in the coastal region of the Adriatic Sea.
