Ch ch ch Changes.

Changes are coming, but slowly. For one thing, this website has been long neglected ! I am making it a point this year to keep Available Pipes listed. It is tough to do with a Commission list a mile long, which I always seem to slip further behind on. New pipes will be listed on Friday evenings, when they are available.

Another big change happened late in 2014, but is still an ongoing project. We moved from ...

NASPC 2014

What a great time in Columbus ! As always, the great people are what makes a pipe show. Sure, the finest pipes and tobacco in the World are at your fingertips, but even that pales before good times over cold drinks and warm pipes.

This years show was no exception, and once again Premal Chhedas hospitality knew no bounds. After the show ended Saturday, Premal invited several dozen of us out to dinner and everyone had a great time. On Sunday, Premal and Smokers Haven held a Pipemakers meetup and opened his shop for the event. A good time was had ...

Back to work !

Back to work !

As many of you know, 2013 was a tough year here. While struggling to grow with my work and get a new business off the ground, our family suffered the loss of our Father as well as a Sister and I also lost one of my best friends all within six months of one another. To say it was quite a blow to deal with is an understatement.

Unfortunately my work and production suffered as well. I apologize to all who have waited extraordinary amounts of time for commissioned work, and to those who have frequented the website looking for ...

Chicago 2013, Come and Gone

Chicago 2013 is come and gone, another year until the fun begins again. This year was my first show. I want to say thanks to all the great people who stopped by my table to look at pipes, and an even bigger thanks to those who took one home !
Heres to 2014 !
