He has been making pipes for over 30-years, and has many excellent pipes available from several retailers. For "Pipe Parts", Brian will respond to a Facebook message he received from Timothy Fernandez. Timothy asked why there are so many nautical themed pipe tobaccos. Brian found out some pretty interesting stuff while researching this, and it goes beyond tobaccos. (It turns out that those sailors were naughty boys.)
