The famous Italian pipe manufactuar Molina is is an old company that has it's origins in Barasso in Lombardy. There base was the old Rossi pipe factory from the early 1900's. The still work in a part of the original building.
The series they make are not expensive, but have a good quality and a nice range of different shapes. there new serie is made of olive wood. A lot of customers were interested in pipes made of olive wood, but it was hard to get. Olive wood is vulnerable and I advise it only to pipe smokers with experience. The colour is bright and the grains are much different from the briar grains. It is always nice to complete your collection with such beauties.
