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.

If you’ve been following MBSD updates, you’ll know that, with Dave Neeb’s retirement from estates restorations and sales, he suggested that we acquire his estates, and we suggested that we also could sell Dave Neeb pipes on our store. This is the third of Dave’s own pipes that he’s sent along so far. It’s a bent egg, but rather than being thick and bulbous in the Danish style, it has more of a reserved, svelte French charm. The ruby red stain and light – though still enjoyably ring grained – sandblast add to this European aesthetic, as does the amber-hued accent at the end of the pipe’s shank.
