The pipe that you are looking at here is a brand new 2014 Icarus Freehand Volcano shape pipe with a dark ebony sandblast finish. This is a fine cross-blasted piece as well as the contours of the ring grain are visible and prominent on the bottom of the bowl. The contours of the shape of the bowl are stunning as it curves ever so lightly forward towards the top of the bowl-and then again towards the bottom of the bowl-giving the pipe a functional kind of artistry seen in pipes at 2-3 times the cost of this one! The bottom of the bowl is convex-adding to the distinction of the shape and the bowl balances beautifully on any flat surface. The pipe is fitted with an acrylic ring which coordinates with the finish of the bowl and shank as well as the stem color. Despite its good size this piece weighs a remarkable 1.4 ounces! This would make a superlative addition to your pipe collection. Get it before it is gone!

The Icarus pipe is the creation of American pipe masters Todd Johnson Pete Prevost and their gifted staff of skilled graphic artists and woodworkers at BriarWorks International here in Nashville Tennessee. The vision and dream was to create the highest possible quality pipe that any pipe smoker can afford. We at UPtown’s Smoke Shop are happy to say that the quality of these pipes are among the best in their (or any) price point. All Neptune and Icarus pipe (even the steep bent pieces) pass the pipe cleaner test with ease. The pipes are produced using Mimmo briar-which is the finest in quality has the best grain is the lightest weight and has the fewest rejects of any on the market. Along with Todd and Peter BriarWorks’s exemplary cast of skilled designers and artisans very carefully craft each shape in their panoply with rigorous detail in regards to form feel and fluid smoking characteristics. The upshot is the closest one can attain to perfection in pipes. We are proud to present a pipe made from the first American pipe studio in over 50 years! Pipe collectors: your collection is not complete without a set of Icarus and Neptune pipes. We think that you will consider these pipes to be the paragon of your pipe collection! The pipes come in six finishes: Light Smooth Dark Smooth Light Blast Dark Blast Light Corduroy and Dark Corduroy.
