I learned the craft of making antler pipes from a friend I met while living in Arizona by the name of Lone Eagle. He is one quarter Comanche and is a true master of his craft. The bowls and mouth pieces are hand carved and buffed antler. The stems are leather, hide or bead wrapped air planed brass. I decorate them with glass, tile or wood beads. These beautiful pipes are functional as well as decorative. I use a larger diameter stem giving these pipes an easy strong draw to make smoking a pleasure.
