The Making Of A Blakemar Briar Tobacco Pipe

A short video displaying the methods used to create a handmade Blakemar Briar.

 

This pipe was made on Thursday 30th September, the whole process taking just under an hour. It was turned from a plateau of Briar bought from Jaume Hom of Spain. The stem is an ‘EXTRA’ quality vulcanite from Carlo Giudici of Italy.
