SOLD
$250.00

Manuel was originally from Lebanon and trained as a wood carver and mainly worked in Churches restoring, statues, wood relief carving, altar screens, etc. In 1979 he left Lebanon, then torn apart by civil war and moved to Germany. Shortly after he apprenticed at Dan Pipe.

Manuel Shaabi was the only pipemaker, ever, who had the skillsets of a wood carver, cabinetmaker and pipe maker. His pipes fused the  European pipe design with a Middle Eastern aesthetic. He is now retired.

Condition: VG++. This big gorgeous pipe has no issues whatsoever. The wood is near new and the stem is virtually pristine. He made very few of these large smooth pipes in his career. This is rare pipe. Grade S2. Comes with sleeve and box.
