COMMONWEAL PIPES: - To celebrate our 20 years in the pipe world we decided, to bring out a continuing high grade brand of traditional English pipes. Every Commonweal pipe is totally handmade and the collaborative work of three pipe makers; Les Wood, Michael Parks and newer pipe maker Nate Rose. Production will be limited to under 35 pipes a year.
These follow on our earlier Ferndown-Premier pipes collaboration. After Les' Wood retired we obtained his hand picked blocks, he turned & aged for 20 years+. Michael Parks, guided all production aspects to meet his high standards. After stemming Michael did the blasting, staining and finishing. Nate Rose hand cut each Vulcanite stem. These are equal to the best of Dunhill stems from "back when".
Every Commonweal pipe is an excellent value with its’ high quality & unique provenance.Stampings:
