Born in Germany, near the Swiss/Austrian border in 1975, Daniel 'Muki' Mustran, the man behind "ND Pipes," now lives and works in Osijek, Croatia. Though a newcomer (Daniel carved his first pipe in 2010), through a combination of arriving with pipe-related skills already in the bag, intense passion for his craft, unflagging dedication, and receiving help from the likes of Enrico Marola and Eder Mathias, Mustran's carving is remarkably advanced. Preferring to use classic forms as a springboard for more adventurous shapes, rather than simply knocking out another template, Muki's aesthetic presents a fascinating synergy between the modernist executions of both the West and Russia.

When it comes to his briar source, 'Manno' is Daniel's choice, and his acrylic stems either start on a lathe and are finished by hand, or are 'hands-on' from start to finish. His draft holes are bored to either 4.0 or 4.2mm, his tenons come in at 3.8 - 4.0mm, and, towards the button, Daniel cuts his stems to form a 'Y', reducing airflow resistance and to ensuring an easy draw.
