Originally from Greece, Phil Trypis worked for Brigham in Toronto for several years before launching his own company. He made thousands of pipes in both traditional and not-so-traditional shapes over some 40 years .
This full bent pipe is a good example of Phil’s work, featuring his characteristic deep rustication and penchant for larger pipes.
This piece is stamped “Trypis” over “Made in Canada” and a shape number, “1C44”.
Cleaned, sanitized and reconditioned, the pipe has had repairs to stem, with a few fills showing near the button. The chamber walls have also been touched up and a bowl coating applied.
Pipe measures 5-1/2″ long overall. The bowl stands approximately 1-5/8″ tall by 1-3/8″ wide with a chamber bore of 7/8 inch in diameter.
