Guild Pipes carries several lines of pipes. First, we offer Hand Made pipes. Our hand made pipes are completely crafted by hand. They are designed for cool smoking and pleasure. Bowls are made from the best quality plateau briar blocks that can be acquired. Stems are made from German ebonite blanks. All aspects of these pipes are meticulously hand crafted in order to give our customers the ultimate smoking experience.
Our second line, the Great Smokers, are made from the same materials as the hand made pipes. However, in order to keep them affordable the stems are made from pre-fabricated blanks. The briar may have one or two minor sand pits but it is of high quality. All the special attention given to a hand made pipe, such as balancing for better draw, reshaping the bit for comfort and high polishing for a smooth, high luster finish or rustication in unique patterns are applied. Our goal is to provide the typical smoker with a pipe as close to hand made as possible. While these pipes are affordable their quality is not compromised and will smoke better than the best factory pipes.
Our third line, consists of pipes we have purchased in the course of doing business. After restoration, they represent good buys that we would like to pass on to our customers.
All pipes can be returned within 14 days unsmoked. In the event of a burnout, pipes may be returned to me to determine its cause. Customer is responsible for return shipping. Briar does have its foibles and on occassion problems that can't be prevented do occur. We will provide you with a another pipe or your money back. Customer satisfaction is our goal.
