Northern Briar Pipes

Ian Walker hand-carves his unique pipes on a boat in England. The Northern Briar journey begins with George Walker, Ian's grandfather. George worked for Duncan Briar as a pipe repair man. George decided to leave Duncan and and founded Northern Briar Pipe Repair Service in 1958. Peter Walker joins the family business before buying Heaton Moor, a tobacco shop. 

In 1972, Ian Walker joins the repair business as an apprentice. He says he spent his first days sweeping floors and making tea. Soon, he learns the basics and quickly becomes the foremost repairman. Ian begins carving his own pipes and selling them in the shop. His skills rapidly developed into an internationally renowned brand. 

Skip discovered Ian Walker at Chicagoland in 2006.
