Davorin Denovic Morta Pipes


Master Davorin Denovic is the world’s leading authority on morta pipes. From Croatia, Denovic sculpts masterpieces from this semi-petrified oak wood into handmade works of art. Stamped with a letter “D” stylized from Slavic Glagolitic script, Denovic’s pipes link ancient history with contemporary innovations in pipecraft.


Denovic shapes with morta, a “bog wood” from Croatia, preserved from decay for thousands of years by acidic conditions in peat bogs. With similarities to meerschaum, morta allows for the full flavor of the tobacco without any interference from the material of the pipe. Durable, elegant, and rare, a Davorin Denovic pipe is a distinct and essential addition to a pipe aficionado’s collection.
