Fire In The Briar

Whether he’s talking to a hand-carved pipe or a small child, there’s no prouder words in a man’s vocabulary than, “I made you.” Sure, he could commission a custom pipe to his exact specifications--and after that, he could pay another man to change his oil and tell him who to vote for...

No, he wants the experience and accomplishment of doing it himself. It’s not just about gaining the perfectly-shaped pipe. It’s about sleepless nights racking his brain for design inspiration or the countless hours (and band-aids) mastering a new carving technique.

It’s about scratching that itch he’s always had but could never name. Give him the gift of infinite possibilities: a pipe he’ll know like the palm of his hand.

Achieve Your Pipe Dreams

The Fire in the Briar pipe-carving kit has all the goods and guidance to transform him into the Michelangelo of shaping stummels, starting with the pre-drilled briar block itself. Briar is the Hercules of the wood world, a hard, heat-resistant burlwood that could traverse the fires of hell with only a fine aroma to show for it. Any pipe worth its puff is made from this stuff.

Trying to carve this briar block bully with his trusty pocket knife would be as painstakingly fruitless as trying to get a good burn with damp tobacco. We’ve called in the big guns of power and precision: a cast iron bench vise, cross-cut blade pull saw, and hardened file and rasp set to forge his future puff buddy to his exact specifications.

Help him become the master of his own destiny one cut at a time with the Fire in the Briar pipe carving kit.

      yeah!

      I got this about a month ago as a random gift from my father. It's probably the best thing I've gotten in my adult life. It fits two of my hobbies, and it's good quality. (wood working and smoking). 10/10

      Pipe Smoker

      I bought this for my brother. He loved it and had it built in a couple of weeks. We are both pipe smokers and think the finished product is awesome. He loved the project and proudly displays it on his mantle when not smoking it.

      Excellent gift. I only wish someone would buy it for me now! Ha!

      Newbie Mistake

      Truly amazing. I would only give advise to others to check the depth of the air passage. When drilled on my wood block, it went further than the heel of the chamber. This is minor, but causes no accurate measurement for determining size. I ended up sanding and noticed it was far past the heel. This makes it impossible smoke now. I will repair and stain it. Still an awesome gift. From the beginning, I realized it was off center on an angle, but I thought it would give it character. I received this as a gift.

      Great Product

      My boyfriend absolutely loved getting this kit. He started working on the pipe as soon as he could, and the pipe really did turn out beautifully. He said that the tools were much better than what he would expect from a "kit" type of project, and is excited to add them to his tool collection.

      Customer service was awesome, and the direction booklet that came with the kit was both very helpful and very fun to read.

      Even though the stem of the pipe isn't anything fancy, once it is sanded down to fit the rest of the pipe, it really looks pretty nice.

      Amaze-balls!

      First purchase made and won't be the last. The old man was elated and this is the perfect equivalent to a bouquet, with chocolates, and stuffed animal. On the plus die it doesn't die or go to his hips! Nor is it turned into a toy for the dog. Flawless ordering process, received alerts every step of the way.

      I was a little butt hurt when I read that the items don't ship in a crate, but that isn't enough to remove any stars. Plus the shipping cost would be horrendous which would ultimately be reflected in the price of the item.

So you my be getting more request for this so you might want to plus up on stock in the warehouse. Thanks for a great product.

      Great gift for during a deployment

      I got this gift for my fiancé who is currently deployed over seas. He loved it:) It only took him a couple days to make and he was happy to have a fun project to work on while deployed. I was a little skeptical about the quality of the tools and material but he said that it was everything was great and easy to make.

      Also their costumer service is outstanding (specifically Josh and John)! When I original order the kit, it got lost somewhere along the way to Afganistan and they went above and beyond to make it right.

      Loved the make your own pipe project!!

      Wifey got this for me for Christmas this year, and while I have a number of purchased pipes, I really enjoyed making this one! As another reviewer said, it is not symmetrical and, had I had the belt sander, table saw, etc. that other pipe makers have, it would have looked a lot better. However, using my own elbow grease to saw and sand, and stain it myself was worth the effort and turned out pretty good considering.

      Two things that they should include in my opinion that would put it over the top--a little carnuba wax to apply to the pipe after it is stained to give it extra shinyness. And, a little more stain would have been nice to have as well. However, the little instruction booklet was hilariously written and I enjoyed reading and laughing at the humor combined with the instructions!!

      No response

      I received the pipe carving kit as a Christmas gift. The box was unsealed when it arrived and was missing the cross cut saw blade and the pipe carving instruction manual. I emailed the company that day (Dec 25th) and received a form email back that said they would not be open until Dec 26th (understandable). However, it is now the 29th and I have still not heard from them. Not very good!

      Fantastic Kit

      My wife bought me this as a Christmas gift and I absolutely love it. All I need to carve my first pipe. The packaging was exactly as it should be, not fancy, adequate for shipping. I can appreciate it. I've already begun to sketch my plans, its going to be a beauty.

      Husband Approved

      This is my second year in a row ordering from Man Crates for my husband for Christmas. Each time its a hit! Good quality tools in a gift that challenges the recipient to use some creativity. I read that it wasn't a crate but I had the diabolical duct tape cocoon to enhance the experience. I recommend it! Great gift idea for the man in your life!

      Pipe Stem not so great

      I got this for my wife (despite the name of this site) who loves smoking pipes and loves making things. She loved!! The tools and the briar wood are high quality stuff, but the stem of the pipe was little lack luster. It looks like very cheap plastic. Great idea and majority of the stuff was awesome, just wished the pipe stem was a little higher quality.
