Creative Briar Pipes was established in 1972 by Al Perkowski. Creative Briar Pipes are custom crafted, handmade tobacco pipes, that uses an abrasive disk to shape and style each pipe. This process gives each pipe a unique, and beautiful look. Creative Briar Pipes are drilled on a drill fixture that Mr. Perkowski designed, to insure every tobacco pipe is drilled exactly as intended. Only the best quality Grecian, Algerian and Italian plateaux briar is used. Stems are made of Ebonite, Lucite and Vulcanite. Each stem is hand crafted to complement the style of the pipe. Extensions are made from exotic woods, deer antler and Lucite to inhance the aesthetics of the pipe. Creative Briar Pipes will never contain fills, and are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for one year. Made in the USA.
