These sets are currently made from high-quality blackwood that was harvested in 2005-6. The projecting mounts on all models are of holly, the metal mounts are aluminum, hand-engraved by David Davidse of Truehand Engraving. David has perfectly reproduced the engraving pattern that was on the original pipe and this is the only option offered. Both craftsmen have captured superbly the lines and shapes of the original pipes.
We offer 4 models:
- Fully mounted with Castello Boxwood
- Fully mounted with Holly
- Holly projecting mounts with engraved, unbeaded ferrules & rings
- Holly projecting mounts with engraved, beaded ferrules & plain tuning slides
