Have you ever wondered how smoking pipes are made? Many people know that briar wood is the most common material, but few know where it is found, or how to harvest, cut and cure it for use in pipes. Enter Mimmo, a second generation briar cutter in Northern Italy who supplies top quality briar to pipe makers and factories around the world. Meet him and learn about his passion and his process in this charming three-part video.
