Oliver Camphausen’s Bullet Pipe


Oliver Camphausen is a genius of a pipe maker in Germany who does really fantastic work.

The picture above shows a pipe he has just carved for me, made with the spent shell of a .458 Winchester Magnum bullet – a big bore used for hunting the “big five” in Africa.

Don’t call the cops, this pipe is on display in München.

When I get there, I’m going to use it to smoke some Lakeland tobacco.

Lakeland is the region in England where the Gawith clan produced snuff. Presumably the soapy/floral aroma is from their original snuff products, carried into their pipe tobacco. (After the Gawiths had a family feud, they split into Samuel Gawith and Gawith Hoggarth.)

More about Lakeland tobacco tomorrow.
