The tobacco pipe for connoisseurs

The tobacco pipe is the most original smoking instrument ever. It plays a central role in the long cultural history of tobacco and has contributed significantly to the worldwide distribution of this stimulant. If there was a hierarchy of smoking, the tobacco pipe would undisputedly claim first place over cigars and cigarettes. The handmade tobacco pipes from the manufactory of AP Donovan convince with noble woods, excellent workmanship and elegant design . All models have a Holmbohrung for receiving commercially available 9 millimeter filter and a mouthpiece made of black acrylic . Both the avid pipe smoker and the pipe novice will discover their new favorite model in this exclusive selection. Already the avowed pipe smoker Albert Einstein knew: " Pfeiferauchen contributes to a reasonably objective and serene judgment on human affairs ." In this sense, we wish relaxed and enjoyable moments with a tobacco pipe by AP Donovan .

The tobacco pipe in the course of time

The great writer Mark Twain (who himself was a passionate pipe smoker during his lifetime) left us with a wise aphorism: "One may forget where one has buried the peace pipe. But one never forgets where the hatchet is. "Apart from the deeper meaning of this quote, it recalls the tobacco pipe as a ritual cult item of North American Native Americans. The peace pipe, also called Kalumet, played a central role in negotiations and religious ceremonies. Also as a sign of hospitality Kalumet visitors were served.

Through the contact of the American settlers with the local Indians tobacco plant and tobacco pipe from the New World came to Europe. In view of the rapid spread of pipe smoking, it seems in hindsight, as if the Europeans had been waiting only for this stimulant. Over time, the tobacco pipe was then increasingly adapted to European preferences. The long spar of the calumet became shorter, while the relatively small bowl became larger. By contrast, the material used to make a tobacco pipe remained unchanged for a long time - whistles of this era consisted almost exclusively of clay. Historical finds prove that the first European clay pipes were made in England in the 16th century.

It was only towards the end of the 18th century that pipe-makers discovered that wood as a pipe material offers some decisive advantages. Clay pipes become very hot when smoking and break quickly. A tobacco pipe made of wood, however, remains relatively cool when smoking, is much more stable and thus more durable. Today, most tobacco pipes are made of wood, with the most exclusive (and most expensive) since the beginning of the 19th century made of coveted bruyere wood. This is the particularly hard and beautifully grained wood from the root tuber of tree heath Erica arborea.
