Vermont Freehand is a company founded by Steve Norse, primarily to sell pipe making supplies to artisan pipe makers. Along the way, Steve designed some great looking pipes that he has commissioned BriarWorks to manufacture to his specifications. What's unique about this line is that Steve selected briar, morta, and olivewood blocks from his own inventory and cut them so the pipes will be made exactly the way he prefers, so you will find super-attractive grain and sandblasts. The shapes are two of the most popular traditional shapes - a straight billiard, and a bent cherrywood, and an intriguing Danish-inspired exaggerated rhodesian that he calls the Norsedog. The engineering is a flawless as you would expect from BriarWorks with an open, effortless draw, and some of these pipes are truly spectacular. If you're looking for a singular pipe that won't crush your wallet, you need to look at these phenomenal Vermont Freehand pipes.
