    My local shop sells pipes marked "H.I.S.". I can't tell if they are by a local maker or made in China.

    Anyone ever heard of them?

    I've heard of H.I.S. but have never been able to find much (if any, really) information about them. The few that I've seen were stamped "Italy" but since then production could have moved around.

    They are made by Gardesana. I have a buddy that has 3 of them and says they are all good smokers.

    Excellent! That helped me find a bit of info. Looks like they are indeed based in Italy. "HIS" stands for "Hugo International Series".

    Thanks.

    I have a H.I.S. That I bought about 4 months ago it's a black rusticated bent apple. I am very fond of the pipe, and it is a good smoker. It's almost as good as my favorite Sav but of course dose not look at nice.
