Description

Konstantin Shekita is a Ukrainian artisan pipe-maker – in fact, one of the first of his kind in Ukraine. In his life, Shekita has been a sportsman and a stuntman, but his work with pipes first began in the 1990s, in Ukraine’s Golden Gate pipe factory. Here, Shekita learned to make machine-made pipes; in the 2000s, he began to create hand-made, artisan pipes under the Shekita name.

I don’t need to tell you that briar is hard. If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be a good material to make pipes out of. So how is it, then, that the masters of briar pipe-making are able to create something that looks as soft as ruffled silk? I wish I knew. In any case, this short little pipe from Shekita is not made from silk, and nor is it carved with fabric in mind. Instead, it takes its inspiration from the humble snail, with its coiled back ridge evoking the creature’s familiar shell.

This Shekita is completely unsmoked. Having arrived at MBSD via our trade-in program, the pipe also comes with its original leather sleeve.
