Long time pipe smoker.. Worked at Collegetown Smoker in Ithaca N.Y in the 1970s. Eclectic tobacco tastes but lean towards full English blends, Vapers, and burley flakes.

Diverse collection of briars mainly from the 60s and early 70s. Enjoy regional American carvers both active today- R.C. Sands, Randy Wiley and Tim West- and no longer working- John and Herb Bessai and older Wilkes. Exploring and enjoying the world of meerschaum.
