Our Featured Interview tonight is with pipe maker Scottie Piersel. A few weeks ago at the Kansas City Pipe Show, I inadvertently bought one of her pipes. There were about 40 pipes on a table that were entrants into the 7-day set contest that focused on the billiard shape. Of all of the pipes, I liked hers the best and bought it. I was pleasantly surprised to find out afterwards that the pipe was made by a woman. In our "Pipe Parts" segment, Brian will talk about the preeminent freehand pipe maker, the late Preben Holm.
