Sebastien Beo pipes are made in St. Claude, France, by Sebastien Beaud. The young pipe maker is also the owner of Genod pipes, which is one of the oldest factories that make briar pipes in the world, having opened in 1865. Reproducing classic French shapes, which usually have small bowls (somewhere along the lines of Dunhill groups 1-3), extra attention and engineering made this line come into being in 2011. The shapes are fantastic and priced extremely reasonably for the quality of the end product. Out of hundreds of pieces – smooth and sandblasted – inspected, not a single one has any fills. All of the pipes are made by Sebastien, who also opens his one-man factory to customers and guests wanting to see something that put St. Claude on the map. France was where most briar bowls were made, for the likes of Dunhill and other companies, as well as it was a chief exporter of briar, well into the 20th century.

The differences between some classic French designs and Sebastien Beo pipes were introduced after Sykes Wilford mentioned that he wanted to sell great French-made pipes that had a larger airway in the shank (4mm), chamfered tenons, and more open [V-groove] stem slots. The craftsmanship is wonderful on these pieces, and the briar is extremely clean. Keeping all pieces traditional, the bowls are either smooth or sandblasted, with modified pre-form vulcanite mouthpieces. No pre-carb or varnish is applied; only stain, wax, and the continuation of French tradition.
