Eldritch pipes are designed, produced and finished by Chris Kelly in his Warwickshire workshop. Where as many modern pipe makers opt to go for a Danish style, if trying to avoid the repetition of Classic English shapes. Chris however threw the handbook out and opted to make pipes with a totally different look and feel. While there are many pipe smokers out there who enjoy the darker side of music, there is a lack of pipes matching this taste. This is where the Eldritch range of pipes come into their own and to quote Chris “Metal as F**k”.
Chris has been a pipe smoker for over 10 years and been making pipes since 2013. His attention for detail shows through, not only in the base shapes, but also in his sublime finishing techniques. All made from high quality briar and German vulcanite rod. Every pipe is made totally by hand and finished either smooth, rustic or more commonly a blend of the two for unique designs. These gothic inspired pipes make use of very interesting staining methods, which helps these pipes stand out.
Without a doubt Chris is one of the most exciting pipe makers in the UK at the moment, if not in the last 20 years. So if you’re looking for a pipe which screams personality and grabs attention, the Eldritch range is a must.
