Briar wood carved pipes are made in Saint-Claude (in the French Jura region). These designs are the work of the pipe-maker Roger Vincent and are hand-sculpted according to a centuries-old technique, making each pipe unique. Roger Vincent is the last pipe-maker who hand-carves pipes in France. He has been specializing in the making of pipes representing celebrities and politicians for 60 years. Each one of his pipes is a true work of art, that calls for exceptional talent.
