Luigi Viprati has been making pipes since 1972. In that time he has built a reputation for hand crafting some of the most breathtaking straight grains & sandblasts available anywhere. No one realizes this more than Viprati who has built strong personal relationships with the mills or "segerie" which supply his briar, and he visits them periodically to hand select each block of the extra-extra plateaux briar. Viprati has often accompanied the harvesting crew(s) into the dry hills of Tuscany to insure that he gets the best blocks possible. I have known Luigi for over 10 years and have always been impressed with his pipes. This year I finally decided I had been remiss in not handling them sooner. Maxim
