From The Hn-pipes website
My name is Heiner Nonnenbroich, born in 1953. In my first job I am a piano teacher and work at a music school. I have been making pipes since 2002. My pipes are exclusively hand-made freehands. Most of my pipes are without filter. I source the best briar wood I can get only as plateaux from Italy and Spain. After the forming and staining, the pipes are oiled and - after several days of drying - polished and finished with Carnauba wax.

The mouthpieces are made from the best German ebonite rods.
