Pavel Gorbunov was born and raised in Vilnius, Lithuania. Originally believing that cigarette smoking and pipe smoking were the same things, he took up pipe smoking, as he could not pass up the shelves decorated with pipes in tobacco stores. Pavel enjoys making things by hand, as compensation for his profession in accounting and finances, which led him to begin pipe making. At the end of 2012, Mr. Gorbunov finish his first briar pipe. Joining the ranks of the newly appearing Russian-Ukrainian pipe makers, Mr. Gorbunov takes great inspiration from Danish styled pipes when crafting his beautiful handmade pipes. Each pipe is painstakingly precise in both shape and internal construction. They are sure to please all the senses.
