Offering estate pipes has long been an ambition for us at TobaccoPipes.com. We couldn’t be happier that the time has finally come! We’ve partnered with our good friend Rich Messineo of Briarville to offer these wonderful pipes. Briarville is a staple of the tobacco pipe community lauded for their fine pipe repair service and providing us with excellent cleaning solutions. Thanks to Messineo’s expert restoration skills, these pipes are getting another chance to be a trusty companion.
Pipes were made to be smoked, and there’s something special about giving one long out of commission—or perhaps never used at all—a chance to again fulfill that purpose by delivering the sublime smokes it was always intended to. If it seems we are a bit romantic about this, well we are. A piece of history you can display and appreciate is wonderful, but one that you can experience while ruminating on the journey that led it to that smoke? That’s a special part of the craft that we are elated to bring to TobaccoPipes.com.
