Molina's tobacco pipes are known for their creativity and their quality. When they make a pipe, it is done with a number of steps and with the best materials available.
Molina's quality assurance starts at the very beginning of their pipe making process. They carefully inspect the incoming raw briar wood, checking for any flaws or imperfections to ensure that they will only use the best possible wood for their smoking pipes. After the briar is selected, they subject it to a specially designed drying process. What this does is removes tannins from the briar, which improves the taste of the early uses of the pipes. The break-in process of smoking pipes is what usually eliminates the tannins, so Molina's process aids in speeding that up.
Molina claims it takes them six hours to create a new tobacco pipe, in a process that uses 41 total steps from the first carve to finish.
