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.

Tampers are well known tools, used for tamping tobacco while smoking. Sometimes I make batch of tampers just for the fun of it, and sometimes they come as a gift with some of my pipes. Usually the pipe and the tamper are made of the same material (for example if the pipe is made of briar and has a ring made of a deer antler, then the tamper will also be made of briar and deer antler). I make them freehanded and each of them is a unique piece, just as my pipes are. They come in all possible combinations, sizes and styles. If a pipe has a tamper that goes with it, then it is customary in the photo together with the pipe.
