Muscovite Sergey Cherpanov is relatively new to pipe making. Starting a few years ago under the tutelage of Victor Yashtylov, Mikail Reyvagin and Sergey Ailarov. Cherpanov has progressed rapidly and now his pipes exhibit all the care and craftsmanship we would expect from any 1st grade pipe maker. Each pipe is meticulously finished and of the North Baltic school of pipe making. Sergey uses top quality Italian briar and German ebonite rods and each pipe is totally hand made.
