"We have been carving pipes since about the middle of 2000. We got started as many new carvers do, a couple of pre-drilled kits, a few tools and not a lot of know how. Those kits produced a couple of pretty ugly pipes, but the seed was sown. We started gradually with a minimum of tools and at first, did not even do our work in the shop. It was all done by hand while sitting on the couch in the living room. As we progressed we found that more and more briar blocks could be found all over the house as well as dusty kitty paw prints when the fur-kids came to check on what we were up to. This ultimately led to us setting up our workshop in the garage. We strive to bring this grace and flow to the works we produce so that they will be appealing to the eye and functional as the best smoking pipe that we can produce. Our goal is to make pipes that will last a lifetime and bring a personal touch to ourselves and our customers."
