"RARE WOOD" - SPECIAL LIMITED LINE OF PIPES
LEARN MORE !
Pipes that I offer in this series are something special, and its history.
Some time ago I managed to buy briar-R blanks, which currently already have historical value. He offered me a great-grandson of a Czech manufacturer of pipes Vaclav Prusa (1890-1958), who was trained at Antonin Ziegler from Krasna Hora ( Beautiful Mountain) and founded his own workshop in the thirties. The biggest success came after 1945, but unfortunately shortly, because a coup in r. 1948 ended his business.
As for the wood, then it is a smaller size briar blanks, so I decided to create a collection of pipes that will be more classic than what you're used to me, is significantly smaller and more subtle. The advantage of such an old material that is harder, more resistant to the heat and even weaker walls nepropálí. A definite disadvantage is a way of cutting briar, because at that time, neglecting straight grain or birds eyes. Priority was then yield, and the wood is cut it is, how it came out.
