I was loaned to Mastercraft for about 9 years and the Shalom pipe factory in Tel Aviv was a supplier. Mickey, Dickey, and Muki were friends and created and made
Alpha pipes. Some of the best I ever saw in design and quality.

Their factory closed about 1993 and so far no-one has re-opened it.
I believe that in years to come Alpha pipes will be as cherished and expensive as Dunhill.

I was browsing the few that are available on the bay. They had some really unique shapes and looked like quality pieces
