For when you’re feeling refined, stylish, and a bit eccentric, “The Buchanan” takes its name from the fifteenth president of the Republic. He may be considered one of the worst presidents ever for mishandling the growing tensions between North and South prior to the Civil War, but, this lifelong bachelor probably knew how to throw a killer party. Supple, elegant, curvaceous — this one is for when you’re feeling fancy.
Exclusively made for Ellicott & Co. by Jesse O'Hara of Companion Pipes, a maker from right here in Lancaster County. The pipe is hand carved from Grecian Briar and the stem is hand cut German Ebonite with integral tenons. Its chamber width is 3/4 inches. The pipe is finished with pure Carnauba wax and has not been stained. It will oxidize and darken quickly with use, accentuating the beautiful grain of the wood. Jesse will gladly do a once a year polish of your pipe at no charge. The stems should never be removed while the pipe is hot. It can destroy the fit of the stem to the shank.
