Description

Dave Neeb spent the first part of his life as an attorney. Upon retiring, however, he turned his hand to an altogether different vocation: pipes. First, Neeb was a pipe seller; he then learned the art of pipe restoration; finally, under the tutelage of Lee Von Erck and Rad Davis, he took up making artisan pipes himself. This continued for many years, with Neeb’s restoration of high-grade pipes being practiced side by side with the crafting of his own – pipes that deservedly amassed a cult following. Eventually, Neeb retired from pipe restoration and sales, but his pipe-making endeavors are, to the relief of many a smoker, not over yet.

This pipe from Dave Neeb gestures toward the classic pipe shapes of England and France, while at the same time upholding the craftsmanship and attention to detail of more modern, artisan works. It is a good-sized, quarter-bent Dublin with a lightly applied sandblast that still brings out the natural ring grain of the briar used. A tortoiseshell acrylic stem lends it further old-world charm, evoking the amber stems of pipes past.
