I don't own one, but they have always looked good to me, and at reasonable prices. I would prefer them to some other well-known makers in that area of the world, personally. I like the way he does classic shapes better.

This is a difficult, if not an entirely useless question, so I don't know why I'm asking, but I feel I must. Do you think his pipes are priced fairly? Meaning: are they over or underpriced?

I have never owned one of Ian's pipes but I do like the fact that they are crafted on a floating workshop.

THOSE ARE TWO STUNNING PIPES YOU PURCHASED. The pricing is more than fair, its very cheap for the pipes your about to receive. PLEASE post your smoking experience after a few weeks of enjoying them. Congratulations on those two new beauties... cheers cheers



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Can you buy direct from him? I don't see a store at his site. There are a couple shapes I've been eyeballing for years, and if I can get both of them together for a discount, I'd probably do that.

I too checked out his website and really like the pipes this maker created. Very talented craftsman indeed. I sent Ian an email asking if he ships to the USA. Many B&M's and pipe makers from Europe will no longer ship to America..... Sad Sad

Nice looking pipes. The price is still baffling me. They're talking $250 each in North America.

Whether pounds, Euros, or dollars, that price seems what I imagine dealers to pay. Thanks for posting. Helluva deal, as we say over here.
