Each Tim West briar pipe is crafted by hand for the best design and smoke possible. Tim made his first pipe in 1967 and went full time as a pipe maker in 1975. Only the best quality, fully cured Greek briar goes into a Tim West pipe. Tim's designer shapes are meant for eye appeal as well as a great smoke. All processes, step by step, are natural, insuring a sweet, cool smoke for every recipient of a Tim West Briar.
