    Found a Kemperling Pipe

    I found this pipe in a thrift shop. The company is Kemperling established in Vienna on 1834. It's an unsmoked souvenir briar pipe with the writing "Innsbruck" and carved edelweiss flowers. For 5 bucks I thought it was worth buying.

    Which Shape of Pipe Matches your Face?

    Sometimes we find a hat, glasses or dress that we like, but when wearing it we find out it doesn't look good with our face or body. I never choose my pipes caring about it, but I made an experiment "wearing" my pipes front of a mirror and understood that bent biliard is the shape that looks...

    Made My First Ramses Pipe

    Here are the pictures of my first Ramses pipe. I was not ready for such a work, but the briar block's wiew was so inviting that I tried and achieved this shape. I don't have yet appropriate lights and camera to show the real beauty of the grain so you just have to imagine it.
