Buckeye Pipes started out in 2006 as a brand that was a stepping stone into artisan Pipes. The pipe makers I worked with first made Buckeyes to refine their talents before starting on Chheda Pipes which require years of practice and refinement. Now Buckeye Pipes have evolved into a very high quality pipe made by highly talented and skilled American pipe makers. Being able to produce Buckeye Pipes has allowed these pipe makers and myself to thrive and create many hundreds of briars to delight many pipers around the world. Each Buckeye pipe is made from high quality Italian or Greek Briar. Drilled shaped and finished individually by each maker. Unfortunately I must do all the stamping! The few makers that produce Buckeye Pipes are some of the most skilled pipe makers I have worked with. They are good, hardworking, passionate old world craftsmen. I am grateful for the partnerships we have built. When you buy a Buckeye pipe, you are supporting some real genuine pipe makers that have struggled and fought to survive making Pipes. They have a true passion for the craft, art, and community. And now Buckeye Pipes are the best they ever have been!
