During our recent visit to the workshop of Vladimir Grechukhin in St. Petersburg I had the chance to personally select some PS Studio pipes.
PS Studio Pipes are still undervalued through pipesmokers but each of them is a really great mix of style and perfection. Vladimir Grechukhin is the designer; he is the Russian pipemaker with the longest history behind himself.PS Studio pipes are made by two pipemakers working in Vladimir’s workshop, under his close supervision. One of these craftsmen is Demin: he’s recently stamping his own name on those PS Studio that he makes from the beginning to the end.
PS Studio pipes are made with Italian briar, aged for three years. The available finishes are two: sandblasted coming in different colors, and smooth, when the briar allows to see a pure grain without imperfections. The mouthpiece is hand carved from an ebonite rod.
The “classic” inspiration, clearly seen in PS Studio pipes, is betrayed by the style of Vladimir that conceives many so-called "chubby".
You can often find some PS Studio pipes with exotic rings or extension, as well as horn and acrylic decorations,
The markings are concise but very clear: each pipe is stamped with "PS Studio, Handmade, Russia”.

Once again, I received a lovely estate pipe from Neatpipes.com - I could not be happier with the appearance, refurbishing and general quality of this Ascorti pipe. As a very friendly gesture from Neatpipes, a small booklet - 'The Five Laws Of Pipe-Companioning' - was included in the shipment. Look for your next estate pipe at Neatpipes.com. You will not be disapponted.

servizio inappuntabile, consegna rapidissima. definire bella questa pipa di andrea gigliucci è a dir poco riduttivo. per quanto mi riguarda essa rappresenta in modo esemplare il percorso di evoluzione stilistica che prediligo: quello della reinterpretazione innovativa degli shape classici. si tratta di una via "stretta" dove spesso casca "l'asino". gigliucci la percorre in modo a pare mio magistrale. questa sera la inauguro: bonariamente, invidiatemi...

A very nice pipe. The refurbishing work is second to none - the pipe indeed looks as new. Also the shipping service (via FedEx) has been without any problems with very good information along the way. I have bought estate pipes from Neatpipes.com before (and since) and it will certainly not be the last time I shall look for new or estate pipes from you.
