What I find interesting about Sergey's pipe is that so many of his shapes fuse the flow of line with the angular in a smooth transition, often incorporating asymmetrical design. Leading to some very fresh original pieces. Each pipes is superbly crafted & finished and are definitely in the North Baltic school of pipe making. He uses top quality Italian briar and German ebonite rods. The stem work is exceptionally fine. Each pipe is totally hand made. I have no hesitation in recommending these pipes to any discriminating smoker.
