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.

    Got this for my boyfriend for christmas. After he opened it he sat down and started making his pipe. It was an all day project that he loved doing. Will be ordering refill wood kit so he can make a couple more. Thank you for having a great MAN Gift

    Husband loved this gift!

    At first he was intimidated but instructions were simple to follow and my husband loved creating his beautiful pipe and wants to do more.

    Quality materials. Fun project

    I got this awesome kit from Man Crates while deployed to Afghanistan. Not only was it really fun (and therapeutic) to carve away at the briar and watch the pipe take shape, but the quality of the materials and tools were surprisingly good. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who enjoys pipe smoking, likes woodworking, enjoys artistic processes, or just someone who may appreciate a unique hobby project.
    I should also say that I had an issue with shipping to an APO and the Man Crates customer service was superior! Seriously, second to none. Here's to the rise of Man Crates and the resurgence of masculine and gentlemanly hobby of pipe smoking.
    I recommend The Country Squire for pipe tobacco.

    My wife got this for my birthday. It came in yesterday and I finished it this afternoon. I’m very satisfied with it. It was a lot of fun to build. Tools are decent quality too.

    Awesome Father Fun

    My dad really loved this kit! Hours of entertainment! I had to pat myself on the back for getting this gift. He's already planning his next pipe.
    Only negative: he said the stem is cheap, and is going to buy a new one. Maybe that's something that can be improved in this kit.
