Project description

In a box with a knot there’s a pipe with a knot.
But is it a pipe or is it not?

A knotted tobacco pipe, hand-carved.

These surreal tobacco pipe come in 3 variants (for the moment) . The first has a briar bowl and an hand-cut acrylic stem. The finish is carnauba wax. The black one is made of tuscanian briar as well, but sandblasted and black stained. The third one is made of an incredible piece of apulian olive wood, with fine SEM (german ebonite) stem, hand-cut.
They come with a handmade box, made of fir and durmast oak, and felt inside. Since I couldn’t find a nice closure, I’ve made myself a hook with a brass plate.
These pipes have my logo stamp and the crown, that is an additional stamp that I use on m special or finest models.

Before carving this pipe model, on which I wanted to create a realistic knot, I’ve made some sketches of course, and I’ve also made a preliminary study in clay; in this way I could have a really good model.

Of course these smoking pipe is functional and you can smoke them with no problems. If you were wondering, the draft hole is straight, so a pipe cleaner will run through it with no problems!
