Rinaldo Photo Album

In 1987 the Rinaldo pipe carving brothers started an ambitious Pipe Company that proudly bears their last name. Today they are revered around the world for their stunning creations in briar. After both Elio and Guido Rinaldo started carving pipes in the mid '70s they have never looked back. Each briar creation is a testimony to pipe-making where all facets of the process are constructed totally by hand. In the pictures show below, you will get a special glimpse of them in the workshop and outside of it (with a little bit of Italy in the background). Enjoy the pictures!!
