Konstantin Shekita was born in 1967. Graduated from Kiev Energy Technical Secondary School and served in the border troops. In 1990 he got a job at the Kiev factory «Golden Gate» as a manufacturer of mouthpieces. His duties included the preparation and polishing of the mouthpieces for pipes. As Konstantin got the necessary experience he began to make his own pipes. So it helped to turn the routine into a creative process. Since 1997 Konstantin began to work independently however he kept staying in creative collaboration with «Golden Gate» factory. First pipes were made of Albanian briar. Because at that time pipes manufacturing for Konstantin was more a hobby than a job the main attention was paid to the absence of defects on the wooden part of the pipe and to the variety of forms.
Nowadays thanks to the cooperation with the professional pipe makers his production shifted to a new level which brought some results - Konstantin took a second place in the competition for the author\'s vision of form Billiard arranged by the magazine «Cigar Clan» (Russia) in 2006.
