These pipes are made-to-order, hand-carved from a block of wood just for you after your order is placed right here in my woodworking shop in the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. All orders are gift wrapped for free!
The images on this Myrtle pipe are hand burned, creating depth, then lightly colored with all natural non-toxic plant based stain. All pipes are finished with a light coat of carnuaba wax, a completely natural and human safe plant based wax.

This is a general listing for these pipes. The style and size of the pipe will be exactly the same, but every piece of Myrtlewood is a little different. The grain and markings on the bowl will vary slightly.
More about the materials I use:
The wood I use to create this pipe bowl is from a rare evergreen hardwood fruit tree, called the Oregon Myrtle (Umbellularia).
Known for the wonderful spicy and woody scent, it has also been called pepperwood, spicebush, cinnamon bush, peppernut tree, mountain laurel, and Balm of Heaven. The dry wood has a color range from blonde (like maple) to brown (like walnut). It is considered a world-class tone wood and is sought after by luthiers, pipe makers and woodworkers.
The Oregon Myrtle, superior to other fruit woods in scent and wood grain, provides a bowl, pleasant taste and is complimented by beautiful wood grains.
I'm very pleased. the way the pipe fits the hand is comforting. it smokes very well. he did a great job.
I just got mine today. The bowl is perfect for holding, the craftsmanship is superb, and it smokes great!
This is my second pipe from Floggleeerks, and I am sure there be more.
I have purchased 3 different pipes from here & i enjoy all three of them. I like the unque style as well as the cool smoke they provide. Smoke on!!!
This is my favorite pipe for several reasons.
1: it is a beautiful design.
2: it fits in my hand very well and very comfortable in my hand.
3: it smokes very cool with no bite no matter what type of tobacco you smoking it.
4: and once you tried one you want other other styles to try, because the prices will not put you in the poor house.
I have ordered the pipe some time ago and I must say it is a unique piece! The stem is also amazing and due to its size, the smoke cools nicely.
One noticeable thing is that the colour of the pipe seems more like grey and not so brown as it is shown in the picture. Since it is a made to order pipe maybe this is not so bad after all
Bought this as a gift for my wife's Birthday next month, we didn't quite get there. She absolutely loves it. Perfect shape for the hand and nice weight. It has become her "New " favorite. Thanks for the awesome work and communications. A++ .
