Hello, I am Elie. I'm a pipe carver, making hand made, freehand tobacco pipes. Formerly situated in Belgium and in Portugal, I'm now living and working in the Périgord Vert, Dordogne, 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.

Over the years, I have build a world-wide reputation for creating unique pipes, often out of the ordinary, and also, as the only one in the world, for making system, aluminum pipes and for, mostly unique, replacement bowls for vintage radiator pipes like Falcon®, Kirsten®, etc.

About the quality of my handmade pipes: 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.

Please pay a visit to my Archive, where you can enjoy a full view of all the pipes I've been making since 2005.

As you know: the most beautiful pipes are always sold fast.  But you can still see them there.

A pipesmokers' heaven.

Thank you.

For a quick overview of all my work since 2005, you can also find me on Pinterest: Elie's Freehand Pipes.

Please note, that the Facebook account called 'Elie-Pipe' has got nothing to do with me.

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