Jobert Pipes

Post  kilted1 on Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:42 pm

I own a wonderful pipe by Johan Slabbert the creator and crafter of Jobert pipes. It is a large 1/8 bent Dublin crafted of Wild Olive wood. While a bit heavy for clenching it has been a marvelous smoker from the very first bowl. The shape execution is very nice, while not quite 'traditional' Johan has his own unique interpretation of traditional shapes. The craftsmanship, drilling and fit are all precise. This finish is natural, and no attempt has been made to mask or cover any imperfections in the graining of the wood. Wild Olive is visually stunning, and quite a departure from briar.

For those who have never owned or smoked a Wild Olive pipe, try to find one you like and purchase one, you will not be sorry. For me at least (and many I've talked to report similar results) initially they impart a very nutty quality to a bowl of tobacco. I'm told this property is shared by oil cured briar. Eventually as the cake build this property fades. I find Wild Olive to be excellent in delivering a superb cool and rich smoking experience, less 'fussy' about what you smoke in it than many a briar pipe.

I'm going to make an effort to try to find other Jobert pipes to purchase in the near future. His website at has been down for awhile. I know that Johan has been in poor health for several years, I hope that he is well.

Thanks. I've always wondered what the olive wood pipes tasted like.
