We have a few exciting points to cover tonight, including both a great tobacco promotion and the introduction of two new pipe brands!
Dunhill tobaccos have been a popular presence in the cellars and pipes alike of smokers for decades, and there has always been a demand for their blends. Until the end of April, you can mix and match any four Dunhill tins, and choose a fifth tin of any Dunhill blend in stock for free! Whether you fancy a bowl of Deluxe Navy Rolls, Early Morning Pipe, 965, or any of the other six blends available, simply add them to your cart and you'll see a link to add the free tin of your choice!
And as mentioned, two pipe brands new to Smokingpipes are hitting the site for the first time tonight, which is always exciting. Viktor Yashtylov has been making waves in collector circles all over the world, and now you'll find his briars making waves with us, too. (And some of you may recall his intricately-cast brass tampers having previously done much the same on our site.) A pipe maker from Russia, he began making pipes in 2000 and is known for his sandblasting technique, finishing process, and for making pipes that are often very small, yet still elegant. We are putting up three of his creations tonight, which include a very small smooth sitter, a sandblasted classic with silver, and a smooth contrasted piece. We are also happy to announce that we've acquired a limited number of Storient meerschaum pipes in from Turkey. Many of them are of classic shapes, yet intricately carved with various motifs, while others display more modern, Freehand designs. Furthermore, while some of these pipes are of the more widely-known, light-weight quality of meerschaum, others are quite heavy by comparison, being made of denser material which some smokers believe results in a more even coloring process.
Aside from these exciting announcements, take a peek as well at other new work from Paolo Becker, Peter Matzhold, L'Anatra, Randy Wiley, Cavicchi, Nording, Savinelli, Peterson, Stanwell, and Winslow, and dozens of estates; a total of 244 fresh pipes!
