Gunter Kittner Smooth Freehand Oom Paul with Horn

Product Number: 004-005-4079

If you've never heard of Gunter Kittner, well, I wouldn't be surprised. Though highly valued, his pipes are damned hard to come by - in fact, as far as I can tell every single one we've ever seen came from a single collector. On top of that, with his particular place in pipe history being that of the first artisanal maker to arise in post-WWII Germany, his most active days were all well before widespread internet access was around to spread the word around. As such readily available knowledge is scant, and his works largely remain something of a hidden gem of German pipemaking.

What info I could find regarding Kittner all had to be translated from German websites. Apparently Gunter never made pipes full time, preferring to keep them works of love, rather than something he depended upon financially. The upside was that this enabled him to put more into each pipe - the downside is that it meant that his total production across the years was very low. According to one source, his whole body work amounted to a mere 500 pieces by the 1990s.
