The Story Behind Mr. Brog Pipes
There’s a little town in Poland with a history and culture that’s been dubbed the Pipe Headquarters of Poland. The story of the town and its pipes, and one of its celebrated pipe producers, was recently published in Pipes Magazine. The full story is here.
“In reality, there’s nothing that can come close to a good pipe smoke. It is the healthiest form of smoke, and also the most relaxing and appreciating,” sayeth the master carver.
The town is Przemysl, the Pipe Headquarters of Poland, where 50,000 hand-carved Mr. Brog Pipes are produced every year. 25% of the pipes make their way to the United States, and each carver completes approximately thirty pipes per day.
The company takes pride in the artistic craftsmanship of the pipes, which are mostly made of pear wood.
“There isn’t a greater feeling for an artist than to be able to express the imagination and have the world enjoy it. My vision leaves my hand, and does its job for 100-200 years in some else’s hand. This is what drives the Mr. Brog brand, and that is why we constantly have new designs, and new colors and finishes.”
And then there’s this:
“Here in Poland, we like to say a pipe is good for a smart person and a dumb person alike. It gives the smart person time to think, and it shuts the mouth of a dumb person so they don’t talk nonsense.”
So do yourself a favor. Sit back with your pipe and a stein of unspecified content, enjoy the story of Mr. Brog Pipes at Pipes Magazine, and follow them on Instagram at @mrbrog. And be happy, like this guy.
