There is nothing better than owning a pipe that you can feel confident is going to last you a long time. While glass pipes are great, they are also very breakable. Wood pipes offer an amazingly natural, smooth, and refreshing hit while surviving drops and other accidents. When it comes to Wood Pipes, there are a few companies that stand out as clear leaders with superior products. These companies include Monkey Pipe, SMDB (Steven Mattern Design Build), RYOT, and Bearded Dugout. Let’s take a look at these brands and some of the products that they are famous for.
Monkey Pipe was founded in Oregon by Erik Sigrist in the early 1990’s. From day one, they have thrived by crafting their smoking pipes from the best custom hand finished hardwoods.
