The story of Bjarne pipes starts during the boom years of freehand pipes, when Bjarne began making pipes as a hobby. One day while trying to help an American pipe shop find a maker to supply them with freehand, he realized that everyone was operating at capacity and couldn’t take on the additional work. So he took on the order himself and made the customer twelve pipes to fulfill the order - only to realize that the buyer wanted twelve dozen. Worried that he wouldn’t be able to fill the order, he enlisted the help of a couple of carvers from another company and Bjarne Pipes was born. Did the twelve dozen sell? Immediately. And looking at Bjarne's pipes today, you can see why.
