Hello everyone. Some of you, I see, I recognize from other forums. Yes, I found my way here from a post on Smokers Forums.

I have been enjoying briar pipes off and on since 1974. My first pipe was a LaStrada half bent sitter.

About 4 years ago, I began a serious "relationship" with the briar. I began collecting many different pipes from different pipe makers and different countries. Now I have about 80 pipes. I also have a small collection of Marxman pipes - both benchmade and sculpted. Going hand in glove with the pipe collection, I have began ofcourse collecting tobacco.

Now I have begun making pipes. I am currently buying kits - briar with predrilled tobacco and draft holes and a fitted stem. I also took a "class" from Tim West. This new hobby has really taken a hold of me. Hopefully, in the near future, I will try selling some of my work.

Anyway, that about covers my quick intro. See you all on the boards.
