Jared Coles 2022 Sandblasted Squat Tomato Handmade Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Jared Coles is a North American pipe-maker based in California. Coles is one of the undisputed masters of the contemporary American artisan scene, but that shouldn’t be surprising given the teachers he’s had. A pipe smoker since an early age, Coles discovered high-grade pipes while studying at college and took up pipe-making himself in 2008. Coles received precious instruction and advice on making his own high-grades from Jeff ‘J. Alan’ Gracik and Todd Johnson, with the Gracik continuing to provide guidance when Coles teamed up with his friend John Klose to found the collaborative J&J Pipes brand. J&J achieved significant success, but was dissolved in 2015, after which Coles and Klose continued to produce pipes under their own names.

When this pipe first landed on my desk I thought it must be a Jess Chonowitsch, but I was neither surprised nor disappointed that it turned out to be a Coles instead. The design is eminently Danish, being a wide and squat tomato of sorts, with a masterfully executed, ring grain sandblast dressing its plump bowl. The rim has been left smooth-polished, and displays a ring of bird’s-eye, while the pipe is completed with a hand-cut ebonite stem.

The condition is excellent. There’s a little inner rim darkening, but as evinced by its chamber, this pipe was very carefully smoked and cared for by its previous owner.
