Micah Cryder

Yeti? Why Yeti? In order to understand the answer to that conundrum, you need to first understand the man behind the pipes: Micah Cryder. The young, hyper-intelligent and good humored gent, who was born/currently lives and carves full time in Montana, offers two (of many) reasons. 1. The very word "Yeti" is evocative of the timeless, hearkens

to campfires, high mountain peaks, exploration and the sense of the unknown waiting to be discovered. 2. While Micah takes his craft very seriously, he is lighthearted of outlook, and felt that naming a marque Yeti would impart a sense of humor and whimsy within an industry which, often, seemed to take itself far-too-seriously.

100% handcrafted from Mimmo briar, and featuring hand-carved bits of German ebonite/cumberland, as well as the occasional foray into Juma and Bakelite, Micah's interiors boast 4mm/3.5mm draft holes in the mortise and stem, respectively. Although a self-described "child of the internet," receiving a majority of his carving education from forums, Micah states that his biggest boost came as a result of personal instruction from Premal Cheddah. While in the process of evolving, the Yeti briar aesthetic currently embraces the American school of shape interpretation.

Micah also made one of the seven pipes selected to be included in the seven day set for the Greater Kansas City Pipe Club's 2013 pipe making contest.
