Now if they did that sort of thing with Celtic knots they'd look fantastic, not so keen on those specifically but the idea works for me, I've long hankered after a nicely engraved Celtic Knot patterned pipe.

They're interesting. Not bad, actually.

I like them, and see some potential for other interesting patterns. Kirk is spot on with Celtic knots!

Meh. Prefer a good sandblast. Better than a bad rustication. Interesting to look at, though, in a museum or collection sense.

It's my understanding that Mr. Amorelli uses lasers to carve the designs in the briar. It does produce an interesting effect, although I'm not sure if it's my cup of tea.

I have got to say.. These are interesting. I like the wheat designs, and would love to see a good celtic knot. However, I do feel that this detracts from the crafted pipe as it is not hand-carved. I would say that at least 60% of my collection is made of hand-carved pipes. There is just something more connected about them. If someone could do that high of detail without a laser, that would be something to really crow about.

Just checked their website...$225.00? Really? If I'm gonna spend that kind of money, I'll go with one of the fine BoB carvers.

I really like Amorelli pipes but, your right they are on the high side for me at least. Crying or Very sad

I've never been into carvings depicting anything on pipes, but for those who are, these are a cool option. The laser seems like it allows a level of precision accessible only to a few very gifted hand carvers.

I saw laser engraving and etching in chrome moly steel at the 2000 machine trade show in Chicago. I didn't see much use for it in industrial applications but maybe it's found a home decorating briar.

To me they look too "modern". That's a term I associate with cheap disposable goods. I'm sure they are very nice pipes, but the perfect laser carving evokes a visceral response in me that I can't get past.

Saw those at the Chicago pipe show and was tempted. I like the design.
