Difficult to know where to start. Pipes are a simple hobby and I’ve enjoyed it for a short time now. However I was in the market for a new pipe, a quality one. Peterson’s are cool, but all are the same. Other brands are nice as well, but made by machines, or very impersonal in their business dealings.
It’s at that point where Martins pipes stood out to me. Not only were his pipes aesthetically pleasing in every way, but I was eager to discover if the aestheticism was a reflection of its performance. WHAT A DISCOVERY. I don’t know how else to put this but why would you buy any other pipe? All of Martins pipes are ONE OF A KIND. He works his heart and soul into each of these! Precision in every step. My pipe has become my favourite and out paces all my others by miles. Smokes cool (thick walls, generous chamber), Ergonomic and comfortable in my hand, perfect mouthpiece and light so clenching is too easy, and truly durable in quality. This review does not encapsulate everything. Romijn pipes are cheaper than most high ends, with triple the value. I can’t go back to anything else. DONT THINK TWICE BUY ONE OF HIS PIECES (his tampers are artwork and practical in usage, an absolute treat that compliments his pipes as well)
Prachtige mooie pijp van een bijzonder vriendelijke man.
This is my First Freehand Craftsmanship. A marvelous work by Martin Romijn. It a Chubby pipe with thick walled Tobacco chamber and a nice Masur Birch extension. Today i received it and smoke it. Its a beauty when you hold it on your hand. A really nice work, nice shape with nice finish.
The pipe smoke very cool and the heat not come to your palm even if you smoke fast with a Virginia in the bowl.
Absolutely well done Marin, i shall come back for more of your work in the future, thanks for now.
Ik was al een tijdje op zoek naar een nieuwe pijp. Gezocht op internet maar kwam niets tegen waarvan ik gelijk dacht, dat is hem. Als ik al iets vond, was de prijs wat aan de hoge kant.
Toen ik op de Facebook site van het pijprokersforum deze pijp tegen kwam, was ik gelijk verkocht. Ik geef toe, moest even een weekend over de prijs nadenken, maar als ik naar fabrieks pijpen keek die ik mooi vond was de prijs ongeveer gelijk.
En wat is er dan mooier dan een unieke pijp te kunnen kopen waar er maar één in de wereld van bestaat i.p.v. honderden of duizenden?
Aangezien ik sinds kort in Duitsland woon, is het altijd maar weer afwachten hoe lang het duurt voor iets hier is. Maar gelukkig werd mijn geduld al na 2 dagen beloont. De pijp was keurig verpakt en was in het echt net zo mooi als op de foto’s die ik ervan gezien had. Geweldig hout, en ligt goed in de hand. Aangezien ik nog niet zo lang pijp rook en pas 2 pijpen ingerookt had, was het toch weer een spannend moment om daar mee te beginnen. En vanaf de eerste keer was ik tevreden. De pijp was gemakkelijk aan te steken en is ook voor een beginnende pijproker als ik gemakkelijk te roken.
Heb hem nu een week of 3, en heb nog geen seconde spijt gehad van mijn aankoop. Zeker het overdenken waard , als je op zoek bent om jezelf te verwennen, om een pijp van Martin aan te schaffen.
Nogmaals bedankt Martin.
Een zeer tevreden pijp roker.
I bought the Dublin bamboo from Martin because i liked the shape and style as shown in the pictures . The pipe was as good and stylish and proffesionally made as the picture. I’ve smoked it for About 20 times now and i can only say is smokes as good as it looks.
I am very happy. The only reason for giving it 4 stars is the fact that its a light and elegant pipe and the bowl is not as thick as some of my other pipes. So i have to smoke it somewhat more gentle than i’m used to. Again its not the pipe its me.
All in all a very good pipe for a very good price.
I bought from Martin a Cherry Wood smoker. What a beautiful pipe it is. The pipe is not only good looking, it smokes very well too. As easy as a cigar, tobacco in the kettle, fire it and smoke it till the bottom. Excellent work Martin, excellent work indeed. Further more the shipping went smooth, after payment the box arrived a few days later, perfectly sealed and wrapped in protective foam. I am proud to be a Martin Romijn pipe owner. Keep up the good works!,
Absolutely stunning craftsmanship!! & seems like it's going to be a mighty fine smoker.
My onyx tamper arrived today. It is beautiful, Martin. The delicate striation of color in the stone is wonderful. Most of the onyx sold is black, and the majority made so artificially. I appreciate the honest treatment of the stone, allowing the onyx to be onyx.
The design of this tamper caught my eye ,originally, and I found it to be even more pleasing in hand. It has a purity of form that can only come from the logical pursuit of function. I can only describe this design as Paleolithic. In a million years time, this will still be a tamper, and it is unlikely that a more literal interpretation could be conceived in that time. In fact, if your were interested in making one of these tamper of this design in a lesser stone with a rougher, more primitive finish I would enjoy that, too.
Thank you, Martin, for a beautiful tamper. It was pleasant to do businesses with you, and I'd be surprised if this were the only purchase I made.
The tamper arrived today. Man it is wonderful. I just love the way it feels
in my hand. Is it possible to make one out of that same material that I
could carry in my pocket. Let me know and we will get together on you making
me another one.
Take Care and Thank you,
I want to say I love the Tamper I won From Fat Max it
is an awesome Tamper.
I am glad to have such a high quality tamper! I can't
wait to show it off in Chicago at the pipe show.
Have a great day!
Stephen won a tamper that "Fat Max " bought from me, to give away in a contest.
