Welcome to my world of pipes. On these pages you will see some of what goes on in my workshop. A bit of work-in-progress, mess-ups (they do happen!) and also some other pipe-related posts.
I love talking about and discussing pipes, so feel free to contact me at charl.chillfactor@gmail.com.
Should you wish to have a look at my pipes, please drop in at my website (http://goussardpipes.com/).

Bowl size: 21mm
Stem material: vulcanite with acrylic ring
Length of pipe: 122mm

A little pocket-sized pipe with a very thin bit. Unfortunately there are a couple of exterior blemishes (biggest one on the underside of the bowl), which is why the price is at such a steal.

Price: Not for Sale
I have been wanting to to try my hand at one of these for a very long time. A couple of months ago, a customer came to me with an old Kiko of which the screw tenon was very loose. Unfortunately, when re-drilling, the meerschaum lining broke into pieces. Feeling sorry for the pipe's premature "death", I promised to make something similar. This is my result.

I am not sure if you should call this an elongated billiard or maybe a liverpool with a long stem! All said, I think it is a very decent pipe with great classical lines. Enjoy!

With a small tobacco chamber, this pipe was made for those people who like their pipes to be on the smaller side. The reverse saddle bit was thrown in to make the pipe a little different to the norm.
