Sometime towards the beginning of the year, I gambled on purchasing a Mr. Brog Pipe, based on recommendations from friends in the YouTube Pipe Community. I was hesitant, because I've spent close to this amount on pipes before that turned out to be not very good pipes at all. But a great deal can be said of a personal recommendation, and so I pulled the trigger...and boy am I glad I did!
I immediately purchased a second Mr. Brog pipe, then a third. This was during the same time that I was in the planning stages of launching this site, and I took the initial steps to see if I could carry Mr. Brog at The Pipe Nook. Well, it took a few months, but I worked out all the kinks, and I'm proud to present my first batch of Brogs!
Mr. Brog Pipes are some of the best value tobacco pipes on the market today. Made in Poland, Mr. Brog pipes are sometimes referred to as the "Dr. Grabow of Europe." However, I have to say that I own Dr. Grabows, and I own Mr. Brogs...and I greatly prefer my Brogs! Mostly made of Pear Wood, these pipes fit somewhere between corn cob pipes and budget briar pipes, both in price and in smoking qualities. Add to that the various shapes, finishes and stains, and you've got a fantastic pipe maker residing at a very affordable price point. While you can't expect a "perfect" pipe in fit and finish for such a small amount of money, what you can expect is an incredibly good smoking pipe that you will be glad to have in your collection! I know...I have 7 of them and counting!
