This year’s Pipe of the Year is a North American classic with subtle Danish influences. A modified bent brandy with horn shank extension, it was designed and made by Randy Wiley specifically for this project.

poy3Wiley has been making pipes for more than 40 years and has built a reputation for creating innovative styles and pipes with superior smoking characteristics at a reasonable price. With that kind of experience, his finishing processes are outstanding. These pipes are available in smooth finish, or rusticated with smooth top or rusticated top. The rusticated pipes are brown or black, and the smooths are very lightly stained.

poy2The stems are hand-finished production stems, modified from the factory originals, which helps keep the price lower than if they were entirely hand-cut. Prices range from $195 to $360. You can view the individual pipes on our website at www.pipesandtobaccosmagazine.com/store.

Measurements are approximate, as these are all handmade pipes:
