Old German Clay Pipes are produced by Markus Fohr, a pipemaker based in Montabaur, Germany whose family has produced clay pipes for generations. Calling on centuries-old techniques, Fohr uses original molds that produce clay pipes with slight variations, ensuring your pipe is the only one quite like it in the world!
Clay is a unique material for pipes. Unlike briar, clay requires no time to condition. Additionally, clay pipes do not retain any “ghost flavor” from previous tobacco, which make them a useful tool for sampling as they allow for all of the nuance of different blends. With Markus Fohr’s Old German Clay Pipes, pipers experience a specific, historical dimension of pipecraft that has been used for generations. Collectors, likewise, will appreciate the unique shapes these classical molds bring to their collections.
