Joachim Bittl (* 1965) made his first pipes around 2004. Only as a hobby and for his own use. He got more serious about pipemaking in 2007, when he decided to offer pipes for sale in June.
Bittl stamps his pipes "JB" at the underside of the shank. Using no fills he also allows minor imperfections and doesn't mask them. From the start all JB pipes featured 9mm filters and just recently he showed first pieces without filter bores. Most stems are made of Acrylics – few of Ebonite.
At the moment prices range from €60 to €150.
