Hello pipe smoking friends around the world, my name is Brett, I'm a 47 year old engineer and I live in Sydney, in (tobacco unfriendly) Australia. I've been smoking pipes for almost 20 years and love all things associated with tobacco. I have an extensive collection of tobacco tins gathered over the years in my quest to try as many tobaccos as possible. I've recently rediscovered my old hobby and the quest continues!

Most of my pipes are Stanwell because of the variety of styles, relatively good quality and reasonable price.
