My name is Yiannos Kokkinos. I live in Cyprus and find myself the only pipe maker in my country. I studied graphic desing in grecee and fine arts in Italy and used to work as a designer .Now I run a small cafeteria in Limassol which houses a workshop upstairs where I can dedicate my free time to pipe making. My pipes are completely handmade. I use the machine tools only for drilling and polishing . I create my pipes out of Mediterranean briar, stems come from Germany, Italy and ,are made of ebonite or acrylic. Also I can use some other materials (e.g. metal, bamboo, olive wood) depending on the design of the pipe. I am crafting my pipes with love and care and I hope you will enjoy smoking my pipe as much as I did when I carved it for you.
My first encounter with pipe-making goes back to my student days (I studied fine arts in Italy) when I purchased a tobacco pipe kit and made my first pipe. It was a life changing experience and the result was a deep bowl straight pipe; even though it has a very sentimental value for me, and is kept in a display cabinet, I still enjoy smoking it.

Smoke in piece!
This is the first time that my pipes are being displayed on the internet.
 
Due to the fact that I work with very basic tools, and only at times of inspiration, my production is quite limited, but every piece is unique with an artistic background:
 
All my pipes are crafted traditionally by hand.  My studio and work shop is just above my Cafe Shop, and as I mentioned earlier, I only use the most basic of tools.
 
I use briar plateaus from Greece, Italy and Spain and make stems from the finest rod.
 
My pipes are made with love and I hope you will get as much enjoyment from smoking one of my pipes as I had carving it for you...
