I started my training as a carpenter in a small family business specialized in furniture.

The affinity to wood with its many facets  has been put to good use during my longtime employment at "Steinway & Sons" in Hamburg.

In 2015, I followed my long time dream - the manufacturing of tobacco pipes by hand.

Since then I am creating my own pipes of simple beauty in a small workshop in Hamburg Altona.

Color and grain of the wood are shown to their fullest during each processing step until a unique tobacco pipe with a handmade decorative ring is created.

Below you can select a pipe from my so far manufactured pipes or you put together/ compose your own unique pipe.

Please enjoy yourself while getting inspired.

Pipes by Wood

Pipes by Colors

All my pipes are made with a mouthpiece out of black acrylic resin. They are suitable for 9mm filters and have a handmade ring out of 935 silver with a 2-3 mm wall thickness.

In order to ensure smoking ability, the wooden pipes with ingredients are equipped with a Bruyère insert.

If you have not found your pipe on this page, you can use the contact form to request your own individual Hanseatic Pipe. For this I need some information from you.

You have the choice of the type of wood, the color, the surface, the mouthpiece and the decorative ring.
