The Butz-Choquin pipe company began in 1858 with Jean-Baptiste and Gustav Butz, a pair of Frenchman. Today, the company is still carving thousands of pipes a year and is one of the premier French pipe companies. With this Arabesque pipe, the 1601 has a specific rustic finish applied to the billiard bowl. We find that this pipe smokes best with a bowl of Samuel Gawith tobacco; another French pipe and tobacco company.

I was drawn to this pipe by its stylish design, lightweight, and the promise of an honest smoking pipe......was not disappointed. This pipe just makes me smile. Not much better than a happy smoke.
