We are thrilled to have finally added Ian Walker’s Northern Briars Extra Special pipe to our collection. This particular pipe features a distinctive, combined finish that some refer to as “oriental”. While this design may not be Ian’s original creation, similar finishes were used on John Redman’s Redonian pipes in the mid-20th century. However, the Northern Briars version exudes a particularly luxurious and captivating aesthetic.
