This is the traditional clay pipe that has been crafted in Knockcroghery, Ireland for 300 years. The pipe is hand-made using the same skills employed by artisans centuries ago. Traditional craftsmanship renders each pipe a unique, authentic Irish craft-piece. A traditional fixture at wakes, trays of tobacco-filled pipes, or duídíns, offered to mourners, who after dipping the shank in whisky or Guinness to both seal and impart a good flavor to the clay mouthpiece, would smoke then break the pipes while saying "Lord have mercy." Today they are a popular groomsman's gift, considered proper for celebrating one's cultural heritage. Choose from three of Ireland's most renowned motifs: Shamrock, Irish Harp, Celtic Spiral. Comes in a gift box. 6" L x 1 1/2" H.
