I'm normally not vey good at this type of thing, but here goes!
I'm Charl Goussard from Cape Town, sunny (and today, very windy!) South Africa. I've smoked a pipe on and off since '93 and finally threw the cigarettes away in 2000 and stayed with pipes.
Then the pipemaking bug bit me in 2007 and I've been addicted to the craft since then.
There seem to be a couple of familiar faces here, and I'm sure after a while it'll be a lot more!

Yes! Welcome, Charl! Nice to see you on this forum. Do check out his website. Charl makes some of the most fantastic pipes I've ever seen. Just beautiful! I've seen a lot of his work (on another forum and on his website) and he really is a true craftsman!

Glad you're here!
