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 Sughero Pipes:
Tommaso Spanu are the only pipe manufacturer that produce these unique, striking and quite simply put outstanding pipes. The process is laborious and can only be done by hand but produces something really special that you will cherish for years.
I’m sure we don’t need to tell you how striking these pipes are and even more so in the flesh. A high grade block of Spanu home grown Briar is shaped and clad with natural Oak Cork before being fitted with a wonderful marbled mouthpiece which compliments the pipe beautifully. This pipe has left the Briar exposed on the rim and the shank for a contrasting effect against the cork.
The cork is a robust coating, which is very comfortable to hold but also aids in cooling the pipe.
Please note that these pipes do not come boxed, they come with the presentation stand only.
