A charming Poker with an Ethereal white Acrylic stem, this pipe has some external flaws to the Briar which I have left intact as it gives the pipe a delightfully playful look and feel, I fell totally in love with this pipe the moment I knew what shape was waiting in the block, it feels fantastic in the hand and looks gorgeous.

Pipe Specifications

Bowl Width: 35mm
Pipe Height: 57mm

Absolutely stunning job Kirk! I love the grain on the last pic. The stem is drop dead gorgeous as well. Glad to see you left those little pits I like them.

The wonder of Briar Spirit Pipes continues on.....what a gorgeous pipe and the stem is astounding!

Perfection with a flaw is still perfection!

Great work, Kirk!

Thank you for the very kind praise, the pipes I have made thus far have just been the beginning, a learning process you might say, I am passed the point of being happy with making pipes that are 'okay', and to my mind that is all I have done so far, I'm awaiting some top grade Briar, once that is with me I shall start my journey in pipe making properly. It is due to the kindness and encouragement I have found right here on BoB that I am able to grow both as a person and as a pipe maker, the old adage of 'watch this space' comes to mind. sunny 


Ha-ha, now I've gone and got all serious you watch the fates come along and slap me upside the head giving me a reality check. lol!

Awesome grain. It's a lovely little poker. I started on one myself, but have other things going on at the moment so it's going to be awhile before it's done. Thanks fer sharing. Can't wait to see the next one.

Thank you for being so kind, I love Pokers myself, can't wait to see the one you are working on, frustrating when other things stop you from working on a pipe isn't it, still waiting on an order of new Briar, feels like I've been waiting for aeons, so frustrating.

Another outstanding work of art from Briar Spirit Pipes.  Beautiful pipe...even if it has flaws in the wood...gives it character.

Kirk, your "just okay" work is one of the BEST looking and smoking pipes I have ever owned.

My imagination can't fathom what a pipe you would be ecstatic about will be like!
