The Sailor Pipes was an idea that was initiated by pipemaker Tom Eltang. The idea was/is that he wanted to use some of the leftover Briar from his regular production for something, and by coincidence they stumbled upon some thin carbon fiber tubes and, hey, there you go - the first Sailor Pipe, the model with a raw carbon shank and no mouthpiece.
The bigger version, Sailor Big, is the second generation of the concept, now fitted with an acrylic mouthpiece. And the response has been amazing, positive enough for us to take the Sailor concept seriously. Honestly, we smoke these pipes ourselves and they are great and fun little puffers, have no doubt. Today the Sailor Pipes are made by Tom's friend Kurt Hansen.
Like Popeye would say: Agagaga!
