Commonweal

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. Each Commonweal pipe is totally handmade and involves the work of three pipe makers; Les Wood, Michael Parks and newer pipe maker Nate Rose. Production will be limited to under 30 pipes a year.

Les Wood hand selected each block and turned the bowls over 20+ years ago. After his recent retirement, based on our previous Ferndown-Premier pipes collaboration, we obtained his turned and well-aged blocks. Michael Parks, who needs no introduction, sandblasted them and guided all other production aspects to meet his high standards. After stemming Michael did the staining and finishing. Nate Rose hand cut and finished each stem from German “A” grade vulcanite. We think so highly of his stem work that we include a close up of each so you can see these are equal to the best of Dunhill stems from "back when". 

We believe each Commonweal pipe is an excellent value with its’ high quality & unique provenance.
