Friends, welcome to my pipe workshop!
My name is Patrik Slažanský and I live in Slovakia. Among other things, I make a living creating freehand pipes from briar wood. A pipe is a beautiful and aesthetic artwork, which not only pleases the eye and soul, but when it is enkindled with fire, the warmth seeps through your hands.
I have been making pipes for a long time now and I have come a long way since the first pipe I ever made, but of course, there is still something to improve in and that is what I enjoy the most.
I have always admired the beautiful shapes and different designs of pipes, to such an extent that I started looking at many forums, mostly foreign, on the topic of pipe production – materials used, pipe shapes, designs and various processing techniques.
I searched for information for a long time and watched videos on YouTube, until one day I bought my first hobby block and completely fell over the spell of smoking. I presented my first professional sales collection in December 2012, which was very successful, especially abroad. Since then, I have gone through professional growth and I hope this is reflected in my recent work. Every pipe made in my workshop is an original piece – I try to go my own way. I start from classic shapes but presented a little differently the way I just feel. My work has found fans in Australia, USA, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Norway, Switzerland, France, Hungary, Cyprus but also in the Czech Republic and of course at home, in Slovakia.
As a bonus, I give a wooden mouthpiece and trinkets to the pipes, which I assume will be appreciated by everyone who will buy a pipe from my workshop.
I believe that the amount of pipes made will constantly increase and I hope that every pipe will find their happy owner or fans.
Have a pleasant day and enjoy a chilly smoke 🙂
