World Renowned Artisan Pipe Maker Tom Eltang Celebrates 40-Years as a Pipe Maker with the Launch of His Own Pipe Tobacco Line-Up

Today, September 17, 2014 is Danish pipe artisan Tom Eltang’s 40th year as a pipe maker. He is throwing a big party in Denmark to commemorate his anniversary. He is also celebrating the launch of his new pipe tobacco line, simply named; "Tom Eltang Tobacco".

Interestingly enough, two of the largest pipe tobacco factories are located in Denmark, but the famous Danish pipe maker is having his tobacco made in the USA, by Cornell & Diehl in North Carolina.

When asked why, Eltang remarked; "I had to wait until my friend bought a tobacco factory before I could have my tobacco made!"

Tom Eltang and Sykes Wilford are good friends. Sykes visits Denmark every year, and the two of them always spend considerable time together. Sykes is the founder of SmokingPipes.com. The parent company of the dominant online retailer, Laudisi Enterprises, merged with tobacco maker Cornell & Diehl effective January 1st of this year.
