    I want to add an American made pipe to my collection and would appreciate any and all suggestions.

    Thanks in advance...

    As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

    Are you looking for high end pipes or average pipes? Let me know and I'll make recommendations.

    I would say more on the high end and I was considering a Boswell.

    I'm an admirer of Randy Wiley's pipes.

    I won't see any communication directed to me here. I'm no longer active at this forum.

    You might consider Cavicchi.

    Great pipes, good price.

    Rad Davis makes some really nice pipes as well

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    Everyone beat me to recommendations, I like the looks of Rad Davis's pipes they are supposed to be superb smokers.

    Mark Tinsky, Colin Frisby, Bob Hayes, Tim West, Skoda pipes, Rolando Negoita, steve Hynick are just a few of many excellent American pipe carvers along with those listed previously.

    With all due respect to pstlpkr, my advice is to stay away from American Smoking Pipes/Mark Tinsky. I picked up one of his pipes and it was just aweful. He's the only pipe maker I've ever dealt with that had horrible customer service.

    Hey Haunted,
    I purchased mine at The Briary so I can't speak to any issues that you have had.
    All I know is the pipe I have is "top shelf".
    The quality may have changed over the years.
    I purchased mine in 1985, I think.

    Thanks Phil,
    This is off topic, but the lower left is my Cavicchi "5C", and the lower right is my free form Bjarne.
    The Cavicchi is about 10 years old and the Bjarne is from around 1985 or so.

    For American makers I don't think you could go wrong with Brian Ruthenberg or Rad Davis. I have several from both and like em all. Brian makes larger pipes with a very open draw. Good luck!!

    For an American pipe, you can't go wrong with "Phil's Apple Wood Llama Chewed" one and only original... Sale price tonight is just $1049.95... If it's an internet sale, no sales tax... Made in the HEART of AMERICA... Iowa!

    I have been dealing with Mark over this past week on my first custom pipe and he couldn't be a nicer guy. Calls, emails, pictures back and forth.

    Beautiful pipes Cooper!

    A suggestion on your website...when I am perusing pipes on the web, I like to see some stats about each pipe. I, personally, pay a fair amount of attention to the weight of the pipe and the tobacco chamber size.
    I want to know whether this will be a pipe that I need to sit and hold, or whether I can smoke it while doing other stuff. I also like to know about how long of a smoke I might be in for.
    While a picture may say a thousand words, it doesn't tell you everything.

    Robert Cooper on eBay (coopersark) does a fantastic job of describing the pipes he has up for auction. Not only in the pictures he posts, but also in the detailed descriptions. http://shop.ebay.com/coopersark/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25

    My thanks to all for your insight… now thanks to my new good friend Phil I now need to sell a Kidney before I can complete my transaction.

    Please save me Pipemaker with a more viable alternative.
