Ramon Planas

Pipe and wood artisan from Mataro, Barcelona who creates gorgeous pieces, all unique, using his own recollected briar.

This is what he says about his wood:

"The briarwood is dug out, cut, boiled in water for 24 hours, dried and stored. My wood has at least 10 to 12 years of drying time. I make sure it is properly pre-seasoned.

To create a briar pipe that is both a beatiful piece of craftmanship as well as a fine smoking pipe, it is essential to begin with the finest of the materials."
