Savor the true enjoyment of smoking a pipe right out of the pages of history. Old Dominion Pipe Co. handcrafts traditional smoking pipes from heirloom corn cobs as well as colonial era clay pipes that are faithful reproductions of 17th and 18th century pipes, and Victorian era pipes from the 19th and early 20th century. Distributed worldwide.
Old Dominion Pipe Co. was founded by brothers Bob and Bill Savage, on their land in Accomack County. In the process of rescuing a nearly extinct heirloom variety of Indian corn, Bill hit on the idea of making traditional tobacco pipes from the leftover cobs.
In April 2013, the Savage brothers discovered a trove of archaeological material on the plantation, including the remains of both cob and clay pipes from the 17th and 18th centuries. Beginning in 2015, they started to make and sell historically accurate clay pipes based on their discoveries. “Venus” clay pipe above, and Colonio, below.
Bob Savage, a pipe aficionado, attests that these simple pipes “smoke extremely well with a great variety of tobacco blends.” In 2018, the company switched to heirloom white pipe corn for all cob pipes. Also see Pungo Creek Mills for fantastic heritage corn meal that his brother Bill produces.
