Handmade pipes from Calumet - Spiritpipes®.
Our products are manufactured from the first to the last step in Germany, North Rhine-Westphalia. With great attention to detail and the highest precision, the beautiful creations of Calumet Spiritpipes are made here. Below we briefly present the most important steps:
Production process of our handmade pipes
First, the blank, also called scantling, is cut from a plank.
In the second step, the pipe shape is created. A round profile is turned from the rectangular blank.
The tools must be sharpened again and again in between, only in this way can we create a beautiful surface.
After the individual parts are completed, the necessary channels and the chamber for the activated carbon filter are incorporated.
When sanding, the highest precision is essential. In a specified sequence, the texture of the wood is highlighted more and more.
Polishing is done with a 1200’s grit, creating a pleasantly soft feel.
In the last step, finishing, the workpiece is sealed with a cold-pressed linseed oil. The capillaries are permanently saturated again and dirt can no longer penetrate.
