    Gentleman, its been awhile since I've posted but i check this board almost everyday. The people and advice given on this board have accelerated my smoking pleasure. what I've learned on this board would have taken many years through trial and error and the possibility of just quitting the hobby out of frustration. I guess the reason for this post is to let the regular posters know that a pipe smoker lurker appreciates all the great advice and pipe knowledge you share. I'm currently waiting for Jake hackert to post some more available pipes on E-bay, I seem to have a bit of PAD coming on. I have a Hackert already and I love it, something about supporting a small artist. However if anyone can recommend another American pipe makers web site with quality pipes for a fair price I would appreciate any recommendations. Once again Kudos to those who take the time to educate a whole new generation of pipe smokers.

    What kind of price range, and what style of pipes are you thinking of, Cad?

    There are any number of North American carvers who are worthy of scrutiny, but your temptation and/or enjoyment of their product may be dependent on your budget and also on your personal preference of styles, and of materials.

    T-bear and I both make pipes, but they don't look anything like each other. For example, his are very ugly.

    Mark Tinsky - ugly.

    Rad Davis - super ugly, don't even look at his pipes.

    Kurt Huhn - ugly.

    Wayne Teipen - ugly.

    Todd Johnson - ugly, and his pipes are also ugly.

    Bruce Weaver - ugly.

    Well, you get the picture. :Banane55:

    And I won't even mention Chris Askwith, cuz he's a Brit. (ugly)

    Now, that leaves .... well, me, I guess. Funny that.

    In all seriousness, there's a whole wack of guys that can make a really wonderful pipe for you, and I think the best idea is to establish a price point that you are comfortable with, a list of features that you feel are important (stem material, surface finish, size of pipe etc) and find a guy who suits you.

    I make pipes, generally in traditional shapes, and generally extra large. But I can't sit here and tell you that no one else can do what I can do, because it would be bull****.

    However, I do sprinkle my pipes with magic dust that makes them smoke good, and not be ugly. :thumbsu:

    One thing I've learned is that you never quit learning! If you think you know it all.....then, well, there's nothing more to say or listen to. PSF is a fantastic resource and beyond that, it's a friendship of pipers and some of these friendships and memories will be carried forever. Cool place, glad to be here.
