Let's see...of the 4 P's...pipes, philosophy, process & policy...I'd much rather focus on the pipes!



You're a great bunch of guys and I'm pleased to enjoy all this with you.

By and large, I think this was a great exchange. †Any disagreement wasn't about execution but individual taste. Maksim continues to prove he's a true craftsmen; but, it was also obvious he's a true gentlemen.

I really enjoyed discussion of taste above and beyond the obvious quality of all pieces. †Can't say for other but I found the experience enjoyable and found out more about Maksim than the normal platitudes extended to offering. †

Pipe Magazine just did a show about the Dublin form and mentioned it wasn't popular and mentioned some that were. †I liked the Dublin better than most. †In other threads, I see absolutely gorgeous bulldog and Rhodesian pipes that have obvious excellence but I wouldn't own one. †That is just me.

I, and I feel Maksim, really enjoyed the exchange. †Maksim, in an aside here, mentioned to me that he shared my interest in traditional shapes. †As a maker and businessman, that is all just another aside. †To succeed, he is responsible for fulfilling customer tastes and is obviously also doing that well.

Maksim, I am a buyer of artisan pipes and I just saw this thread for the first time. You are making some incredible pipes and what really hits home with me is the attention to detail that you put into your stems. The fact you make the insides as smooth as glass to me means you get it One of the things that makes a great smoking pipe is no turbulence in the stem and the fact that you recognize this says to me that your first goal is to make a great smoking pipe and the looks are secondary. In my years of collecting pipes I have had some gorgeous pipes from some pretty notable artisans( Rainer Barbi, Kurt Balleby and Peter Matzhold) that frankly were not great smokers, I sold off all of those pipes because I am a pipe smoker first and foremost. I will no doubt buy one of your pipes in the near future and I wish you continued success.

On another note some of my family immigrated from Kiev a long time ago, so we could be related. Do you give discounts to family members?Laughing

I'll second finding myself in the regrettable circumstance of having to dump more than a few expensive, supposedly top tier briars that smoked about as well as road tar in an oil drum. Well, actually I've had one or two Texaco barrels that weren't all that bad. Ahem. Yes, well be that as it may, my kudos as well to a maker whose primary concerns are in my opinion - a melding of supreme performance AND artistic design crafted meticulously.

I swear I've got a no name Oom Paul estate I picked up for twenty bucks that out smokes any Dunhill I've ever owned. What's up with that? Maybe it's that the dozen or so Dunhills that are now gone from my rack were all just flukes. Hmpgh! Statistically unlikely.

I will only add that my favorite and best smoking pipes are the ones that were made by a single craftsman from start to finish...most being active members here. It's a fine place with lots to offer. I hope one day to own one of Maksim's lovely pipes. Til then, I hope he decides to stick around.

Have a great 4th of July everyone.

Hello Everyone!
Iíd like to proceed publishing the pictures of my work here. And Iím sorry for such a long period of being silent.
So, these are two pipes which Iíd like to publish first. They were
made by order, †with two different stems for each pipe (one stem for filter) and mixed finish (sandblasted and smooth):

1321 Bent Tomato :















1404 Blowfish:














I would be glad to hear something from you, brothers!

Wow! I cannot believe that I missed this thread! This is very good work. My favorites are the 1121 blowfish, the smooth billiard, and the 1216 sandblast full bent. Your freehands are wonderful works of art. I can see the skill and artistry that you have. Keep up the good work.

Briar Spirit, Cartaphilus, Blackhorse, d4klutz, pepesdad1 and the rev,
Thank you very much for your warm words! I am very pleased to hear all these words.
Blackhorse, thank you for your mentioning my photos. They are another piece of work Smile

About my freehands, the idea and general concept of some special freehand were born in 2012. As a result, the following pipe was made in 2012 (1212 Sandblasted Freehand):


After that I developed the idea and came to the concept which Iíve called CORSAIR.
In the spirit of this concept I made several pipes within 2013:
1307 CORSAIR Dragon, Mixed Finish, Reversed Calabash


1311 CORSAIR Hawk


1312 CORSAIR †Old Boat, Mixed Finish, Reversed Calabash



And this year I finished 1401 CORSAIR Manticora, Smooth, Reversed Calabash. So, please, look at the pictures of it:

Pretty amazing, unique, and truly artistic creations. Never seen pipes that push the boundaries like these!

(I hasten to add that I'm pretty much a traditional shape kinda guy, but can appreciate the artistry at the same time.)
