Pipe Butz Choquin

In 1858 created Jean-Baptiste Choquin with his son-in-law Gustave Butz their first pipe. It was a briar pipe with silver ornaments and there was a part in bone of albatross. The company was founded in in Metz and took the name Butz-Choquin. In 1951 the brand BC was bought by the Berrod-Regad company and moved to Saint-Claude. This company came with new ideas and vision and put this brand again on the map. They also started with the export of these great quality pipes. 10 series became 70 series and this brand got worldwide fame. Since 2002 Fabien Guichon is responsible for the developping of the BC pipes.

I think BC hat some beautiful designs and some great shapes. They always develop something new and interesting. Some pipes are so different, that those are really recognisable. Also the price is good.

My Shop

My shop is really small but cosy. At this moment most of my pipes are not in my store, but I am going to change that. I am planning to stop selling magazines and also some candy. There will be more place for more pipes, lighters and pipe tobacco.

You can also follow my shop on Facebook!

Pipe Tampers and Tools

At the fair in Dortmund I bought some great pipe tools, those arrived today. Those are special because the tools are not factory made. All tools are created or designed by freehand pipe makers, like Tsuge, L'Anatra and Nording. The tools and tampers were made from bamboo, briar and horn. Real collectables! i always love these, because you don't see them every day.

The Tsuge pipe tool and tamper is made of Japanese bamboo.

This is one of L'Anatra's pipe tampers, beautiful smooth briar.

I will be adding more nice pipetools the next few days.
