Denny Souers Pipes

Mainly Danish style, high-quality, hand-carved freehand pipes. You can find a few on eBay for several hundred dollars.

From one of his eBay pages:

"I have been creating hand-carved Grecian briar pipes for 40 years. I hand-carve unique pipes that impress the eye, please the touch and satisfy the pipe smoker’s need for a one-of-a-kind experience. I [carve] EACH pipe with my insignia, DCS, which has met a serious standard of pipe-making.

I start with plateaux blocks of Grecian briar paying careful attention to the wood grain. I turn the tough burl blocks into individually crafted works of art in a variety of styles, from the dramatic freehand to the classics. I am constantly feeling the comfort level and ease of handling. I Keep the pipes light weight, 2 oz., so they are always comfortable.

Important design features include tobacco holes cut in a distinctive teardrop shape to allow a better draw, and bowl walls which measure greater than a quarter-inch to maximize a cool smoke.

All my pipes are finished with carnauba wax which allows the bowl to breathe while protecting the wood from oils and impurities. The bowls are not pre-carboned so you can judge the fine unfinished wood grain for yourself."
