Pipe stuff

Nate King pipes
pskingPipemaker Nate King learned the necessity of precision, efficiency, attention to detail and sleek design as a racing mechanic and transmission specialist in IndyCar racing. When he began making pipes just a few short years ago, he found those values translated perfectly into pipemaking.
King has gained attention in the pipe-collecting universe with his unique Gear Punk and Steam Punk pipe designs, but he is  a dedicated student of creating classically inspired pipes as well. No matter if it’s an avant-garde design or a classic, each Nate King pipe is engineered to provide only the best smoking experience possible.
Nate King pipes are available at www.natekingpipes.com, Smokingpipes.com and Smokershaven.com.

Wayne Teipen pipes
psteipenAmerican pipemaker Wayne Teipen began smoking and collecting pipes in 2006. With Teipen’s innate curiosity, it was only natural that he would attempt to make his first pipe two years later using only a pre-drilled block, a dremel, sandpaper and some files and rasps. To his surprise, he found that first effort smokeable and was hooked.
More than five years later, with an undying passion for the craft and a relentless pursuit of perfection, Teipen produces 30 to 40 pipes a year, taking the time to focus on quality rather than quantity. Teipen uses prime sources of Mediterranean briar, incorporates various exotic materials and hand cuts each stem from German Ebonite and, on occasion, acrylic.
Teipen Handmade Pipes can be purchased directly from www.teipenpipes.com. They can also be purchased from online retailers www.thepipeguys.com and www.pipesandcigars.com.
