    Good Morning Gentlemen;

    Is there a a listing on here for pipe makers.
    I would like to research (shop) and really don't like using Google with my limited knowledge.

    The smokingpipesdotcom website, under "New Pipes" has a pretty well laid out list of manufacturers, with a little blurb about each company. It's as reasonable a place to start as any.

    You're welcome! There's this other forum you could check out as well: http://www.pipemakersforum.com/

    If I can be more straightforward, however, allow me to connect you directly with these 3 PSF members who I have dealt with, and their websites:
    Sasquatch, https://pipesmokersforum.com/community/members/sasquatch.59/, http://briarsweatandtears.com/
    Andrew, https://pipesmokersforum.com/community/members/andrew.2229/, http://www.andrewstaplespipes.com/
    Mark, https://pipesmokersforum.com/community/members/mark-tinsky.104/, http://amsmoke.com/

    I can assure you won't be disappointed!

    I can second the Sasquatch recommendation for an artisan pipe. Engineering, looks, performance and purchase experience- can't be beat. I've read lots of good about the other 2 Dondi mentions, but have no personal experience.

    WOW Dondi. Excuse me while I dry my chin off. :drly:
    Those are exactly the kind of makers I was hoping to find. Good people that love what they are making.
    Thanks.

    Dondi, I've never heard of any of those guys. Think I'd just stick with Peterson if I were you. :bag:

    Meerschaum guy here. I've got a Boswell and a Savinelli that I stick in my chops when I'm in a hurry, but honestly the only briar I pull out for serious smoking is my Sasquatch. :sh:
