Re: Pipes

If I recall correctly,

Soldiers in the trenches during the war often had to pull their pipes apart in a hurry, this led to many a broken tenon. The standard field repair was to fit the head end of...

Re: Pipes

Meerschaum pipes are fragile, getting dropped, bagged around or rough handling can spell the end for these pipes. If it’s likely that you’ll have to set it down or get up and go in a hurry, it...

Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Hello Ken,

This one has a way to go before finished, it’s a rough example of what could be made.
