Kristiansen Pipes have a simple yet effective tag line - Danish Design, Italian Taste - and we've found this couldn't be more true. They only produce around 350 - 400 pieces annually, with all of their Briar being aged at least 6 years. The carver remains anonymous, but showcases masterful designs, such as their signature Eskimo shape. They come in a variety of finishes & grades (Y, YY, YYY, L, K) with the Emma series being amongst the highest grades, and Alleluia Emma being a near perfect piece. Cup O' Joes is proud to announce that we are the first U.S. retailer to feature this new brand, which are made in Italy and distributed by Maurizio Fraternale, owner of Arcadia Pipes, the same company who brings you Ser Jacopo, Mastro Geppetto, Caminetto and more - Be one of the first to take home a Kristiansen!
