Tommaso Spanu: Tomasso Spanu is a highly experienced master pipe maker who began his apprenticeship in 1963 before forming his own company in 1979. They are the only pipe manufacturer in the world that grows, harvests and mills their own Briar. They restrict manufacture to around 1,000 hand made pipes per year as they are passionate about quality over mass production. Their methods of harvesting, seasoning and attention to detail are matched by no other manufacturer. Every Briar block is boiled in naturally purified water and the finishing of the pipes is done using organic products including boiled herbs and bark.
Tommaso Spanu Zebrano Zebrano is a heavy, hard wood with a somewhat coarse texture, often with an interlocked or wavy grain. A decorative wood, it is also used in a limited way for veneer, furniture trim, marquetry and turnery. It is also sometimes seen as stocks of shotguns and rifles or in exotic guitars. In the past it was used in Cadillac and Mercedes Benz cars. It also lends itself extremely well to smoking pipes, and is just as durable as the more traditional Briar, but with added flair and individuality.
