Blakemar Briars is happy to announce the release of our new online shop - allowing you to purchase any of our available stock online and have it delivered to your door!

We've kept all our pipe categories from the old site, including Straight Grain and Hand Made. You may also notice that the formatting of each product page has been standardised, making it easier for you to find the info you're looking for. Head on over to the Pipes page to start browsing.

Tobacco is now also available for customers (uk only) to purchase directly online. This includes both Loose Tobacco and Tinned Tobacco - be sure to check them out on the Tobacco page!

All payments online are made securely using PayPal. We do not have access to card details submitted and they are done so through PayPal's secure site for your protection. We also accept cheque payments, but we can only ship the product once the payment has been confirmed.

If you have any issues or queries please feel free to get in touch - otherwise happy shopping! :)

UK Pipe Show 22/05/2016

10/05/2016 17:33

It's back!

After some legal issues cancelling the event in 2015, the UK Pipe Show is back!

While the smoking competition has been dropped, they will still be going forward with the popular pipe show - inviting some of the UKs finest pipe makers down to display their products available for sale to anyone who attends the event.

A word from the organisers

"For 2016 we are holding the pipe show at the Canal House in Nottingham, this converted offices & warehouse of Fellows Morton & Clayton. Which still has a couple of narrow boats and inner loading bay in the main bar and a stunning smoking area on the Canal. The show will be held in the upstairs function room, with food & drink on sale in the main bar. The Canal Houses central location makes getting to and from the event easy, with the coach & train stations a few minute walk away.

Throughout the day we will be holding Q&A’s and small workshops regarding pipes and pipe restorations. With the chance to chat to makers, importers, sellers and most of all other pipe smokers. Many of the UK pipe clubs will be in attendance, so finding out about local meetings and smoking contests is easy. Many members will be doing swaps of tobaccos and old pipes, so bring along anything you might like to trade with."

More information about the event can be found on the UK Pipe Show website at: http://www.pipeshow.co.uk/
You can also join their Facebook group at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1560378497585611/

We'll be there!

Blakemar Briars will once again be attending the UK Pipe Show, with a table reserved for us to display a selection of our pipes available for sale. The show is always a great day out, whether you're looking to browse the various pipes for sale or to relax, enjoy a smoke and chat with fellow pipe enthusiasts.

I hope to see you there!

Holiday Closure 19/04/2016

Blakemar Briars will be closed from 19/04/2016 and will reopen for business 02/05/2016.

Orders placed during this time will not start processing until we are open once again.

Any emails sent to us during this week will be answered upon my return, however please bear in mind that my reply may be delayed further while I try to respond to everyone in chronological order.

Any large orders should be placed well in advance of the above date, as it may take some time to construct your order and could mean delayed shipping if left too late.

I am travelling to Fuerteventura with my wife for a relaxing holiday - my first time out of the country for 35+ years!

We have just added a new selection of One-Off Specials to the site. As the name suggests, these are unique shapes / designs that may never be produced again - be sure to take a look at our One-Off Specials page to see if there are any you like before they're all gone!

This week we've added a new tinned tobacco blend to our selection:


Dunhill My Mixture BB1938 (50g) Originally called "Baby's Bottom", now rebranded to BB1938. Generally a full bodied, smooth, rich and balanced smoke, full of nice tannins, with a clear smoky base due to the premium quality of Latakia tobacco in this fine mixture. Overall taste notes are woody, smoky, tannin and spicy.


To see our full selection of stocked tinned tobacco products, head on over to the Tinned Tobacco page. If loose tobacco is more your preference, you can see our full selection on the Loose Tobacco page.

Some of you may be aware that we stock a pipe brochure in our showroom, that lists a selection of shapes and colours produced by Blakemar Briars.

A copy of this brochure is available to any and all customers, some of which may not always have access to a PC or the internet to view our website.

We have recently released a new version of this brochure, with up to date information about shapes that we stock and also included a few samples of the pipes availble online.

Please find an embedded copy of this brochure below, along with a download link to the pdf file. Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy please just let us know and we'll be happy to send you one!

Once again, the cost of tobacco has increased.

While the tobacco shown on this site is still currently at the same price, once we purchase new stock these prices will increase.

I would estimate that these prices will be amended before the end of February, so anyone looking to purchase that extra bit of tobacco or tinned tobacco before the prices go up should get in touch asap.
