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/).

A billiard with a kick! A thicker shank, widening towards the stem and ending with the white acrylic, and then the slim and elegant stem. Works quite well together, don't you think?

I have always been crazy about Lovats, and this one is no exception. There are a couple of external blemishes in the wood, therefore the very low price. As a sidenote: I never do fills and never try to hide pits or blemishes. Wood is a natural product and should be seen as such.
