Viprati Pipes - all world shipping smoking pipes

Luigi Viprati has built a justifiably powerful reputation for hand crafting some of the most breathtaking straight grains available anywhere. No one realizes this more than Viprati who has built strong personal relationships with the mills or "segerie" which supply his briar, and he visits them periodically to hand select each block of the extra-extra plateaux briar. Recently, Viprati lengthened his usual visit by accompanying the harvesting crew into the dry hills of Tuscany. There he saw how the briar is wrested from the earth, and the meticulous handling it goes through to ensure the smoking characteristics of fine briar.
