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 10 of them and counting!
