Pipemaker David Wagner is specialised in custom made tobacco pipes.
He offers on his web site a range of shapes. One can choose from many different materials, finishes, colors, dimensions and much more. David provides a non binding price preannouncement and will send a drawing in real size.
He has learned his craft from Franz von Matt in Switzerland, Rainer Barbi in Germany & Josef Prammer in Austria.
Why does he carve pipes?
He is fascinated by the archaic shapes of tobacco pipes which are one of the oldest sculptures of human beings. And he likes the simplicity and complexity at the same time, which all good pipes have in common.
His workshop is situated near the Lake Traunsee in the Salzkammergut region. David carves between 100 and 120 tobacco pipes each year by hand from briar root (erica arborea).
