Boris Starkov is a Moscow born-and-based artisan who has made a great impression on those who’ve had a chance to get their hands on his work. Born in 1982, he’s a young man who works in the small-production, very design and labor intensive manner, a field of artisanal pipemaking largely dominated by masters with decades of experience. Nonetheless, through a killer combination of talent, experimentation, and dedication to perfecting concepts, he is producing briars whose aesthetic beauty and refinement, as well as smoking qualities, are surprising even those familiar with the works of established greats.
As the ‘00s saw a new wave of American talent emerge, we are now finding another springing forth from the regions of Russia, Eastern Europe, and the Balkans. Amongst these promising artisans now coming to the attention the wider world, Starkov is definitely one to watch.
