Since I've only been a member of this forum since June, this entry may have already been discussed. First, let me say that I love my pipes from other countries. I treasure my Parkers, Nordings, BBBs, my Petersons and others. I always read the entries concerning Italian and English pipes. If one considers MM cobs and other pipes made in America, we may be the largest pipe manufacturers in the world. At the moment, I'm smoking Mississippi River in a very old WDC. I have to wonder why there is no subtopic for American pipes? My personal rotation includes Fischer, Arlington, the above mentioned WDCs and my Parkers, etc.There are so many fine artists making world-class pipes in the US at the moment, I'd love to hear from others what their favorites are. Has an American subtopic ever been discussed, or our thoughts best reserved for the Pipe Talk subtopic? I'd love to read your thoughts on the subject.
