Hello, I am Elie. I'm a pipe carver, making hand made, freehand tobacco pipes. I'm living and working in France.
There's not that much to be told about me. I'm a mostly self taught pipe maker who is passionate about this art of carving freehands out of briar. As you will notice from the images: I don't stick to one style, one material. Mostly not traditional, not standard. I like to stretch the boundaries of traditional handmade pipes. My aim is to create beauty on a few square inches.

As you will also notice: my prices are moderate. 'Wholesale' prices, due to direct sale from pipe maker to pipe smoker. Considering most pipe retailers sell for double and more than they bought from the artisan: double my prices, and you will know the so called 'retail-value'.

About quality : I have 3 grades.
A: High end. Collector's grade.
S: Smokers' grade. (Might sometimes, but not always, have tiny imperfections, hardly noticeable, like a small sandpit.)
R: Reject. In this case, something went wrong, but perfectly smokable pipe.

I hope you will enjoy my pipes and my site. Thank you for visiting and bookmark me please.
