If you prefer an unfinished sumac stem that you want to make yourself, we will be happy to make that substitution for you at no charge. You just have to let us know when you're ordering if that's what you prefer.

The stone used for our catlinite pipe blanks is the Sacred Pipestone from the Pipestone National Monument. It is some of the highest quality carving stone available in the world and has been used for centuries by Native Americans to make ceremonial pipes. This stone can easily be carved with a knife or regular wood files.

The stone used for our steatite or black pipestone pipe blanks is also a very high quality stone. Your pipe when completed, will be a very dark black color. This type of stone holds up exceptionally well to intense heat. Steatite carves the best using a farrier's rasp or other wood carving files.

If you decide to purchase one of our pipe blank/stem combinations we want to see you follow through and complete your pipe. We make ourselves available to answer any questions that might come up while your working on it. We can often provide little helpful hints if you run into a "snag" of any kind.

If you are interested in a pipe blank and have any questions please email us or give us a call.
