As of this month, David Johnson (Ozark Mountain Briars) has ceased making pipes due to wood dust allergies. I own 6 or 7 of his pieces. David's work was right up there among the best of US pipe makers in my opinion, and I will greatly miss his output. He had an elegant, neoclassical style that was all his own. All of his pipes that I own are light, comfortable, attractive, and flawless smokers.
David states that his website will go down in mid June. If you are not familiar with his work, don't miss the chance to visit his gallery before it disappears from the web.David Johnson's Gallery

Here is one of my David Johnson pipes that I had not photographed until today. I'm not sure what to call this shape - its not quite a Bell, so I call it a "Candle Snuffer". David labels it a Dublin. The grade is "Tradesman".
