Welcome to JS Pipes! http://www.jspipes.com
Let me introduce myself. My name is Joel Shapiro, and I live in Rancho Cordova, California. I offer a limited number of handmade briar pipes for sale.
The type of briar (Grecian, Italian, etc.) will be noted for each pipe made, along with further details concerning stem type (ebonite, lucite, cumberland, etc.) and shank extensions. A complete size description will be included with each pipe posted for sale.
I do not fill any flaws in the briar, so the buyer will see exactly what is offered with nothing to hide. All pipes are finished with a buffed in coat of carnauba wax over the stain. Stains are all alcohol based and will not seal the wood, so won't alter the smoking experience or the breathing qualities of the briar.
In addition, I also offer a unique tamper design. My tampers are hand turned from quality hardwoods and the foot is cut at an angle to aid in mounding the tobacco and keeping the ember banked. I have found that this design results is fewer relights for a more enjoyable smoke. I can make these in any custom size and in most hardwoods, including some exotics. If you'd like a custom size (for very large pipes for example) or material, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All tampers are priced at $24.95, unless the material chosen is particularly expensive or difficult to work.
If you'd like to buy a pipe or tamper, but prefer to pay by money order or check, please e-mail (email@example.com) for my mailing address.
