    Proof:

    And since smokingpipes.com reps her stuff and is an advertiser here, I'd say Kevin has a problem.

    Sykes, too, for that matter.

    I read this a month ago on his website and could not stop laughing. It is the best pipe advertisement I have ever seen.

    One doesn't make pipes like that without first meeting the devil at a crossroads at midnight. I thought that was understood here in the pipe community.

    That explains why Bruce and I get along so well. Puppy back ribs are delicious.

    I like coffee exceedingly.

    I like them on pumpernickel with a touch of stone ground mustard, lettuce, tomato, and a bit of sauerkraut. So yummy!

    Interesting marketing strategy. I have seen a large number of BST pipes over the years and he does some very nice work.

    Don't worry. The puppy patrol gang will get her when she least expects it. They are bad a..s.

    Actually, I saw that on Sasquatch's site a while back and laughed. It is very typical "pipe people" humor.

    He uses the word Satanist like it's a bad thing...

    We don't eat puppies.

    Hush Puppies! Had a pair as a kid, wasn't sure they were still around. They are.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Plain? Would be much better with chili, cheese, onions, relish, and sauerkraut.

    No shit, only a real heathen eats a mini-dachsund without kraut.

    In seriousness, or as serious as I'll get here on a Friday night, when I wrote that a few years ago it made at least a little sense - at this point I need to rewrite that stuff - Andrew quit, Bruce more or less retired, and I gotta add that big asshole Alden: obvious puppy eater.

    Less seriously, I decided a long time ago to not wear leather pants and a silk shirt and sell my pipes in little leather bags and carry them in a little aluminum case like EVERY other pipe maker (and especially Ernie Markle). So I started doing funny stuff, like teasing people, and selling my pipes in big fuzzy sasquatch scrotum bags - the opposite of the "high grade" crowd. Because I sell pipes mostly to Joe Sixpack and not Joe Collector. And it's fun for Joe Sixpack to think I shipped him a dead rat (and it's fun for Joe Sixpack's kid to have a sleeping bag for her Barbie). It's fun. All this stuff is super fun, making pipes... fun.

    Yep, said stem making was hurting his knuckles too badly. He was having fun restoring Dunhill lighters when we last talked.

    Harris, the is no "strategy", really. There's pipes, and at this point, they're pretty good. I do what I do. And anyone that likes that can buy my pipes, and anyone who wants something else in a pipe or a pipemaker, can get it, that's what's so great here. The truth is, there's very little separation between most handmade pipes these days- we all have briar, we all have ebonite, we can all drill and file and sand. I don't have any mystical process, and neither does Scottie, or Ryan. Or really anyone else (save for a few who go to the extent of oil curing). We all know how to do this.

    So why would anyone buy a pipe from me, rather than Scottie, Nate, Bruce, Wojtek, Clark, Stephen, Michael, Mikael, Mikhail, Mikhail, Mikhail, Mycah (or the other Mycah) or Sam or one of the other Todds even... I mean, the choice is endless. So I'm honest about that. These people are my friends, by and large, I'm happy if they sell pipes. I sell lots of pipes, and I sell lots of pipes to people who are looking for their first "gooder" pipe, and usually I hit it good enough that they become handmade converts - I'm a gateway drug, as it were.

    But the mysticism, the sales pitch? Nah. I make pretty good pipes, that's the pitch. I've made a hundred changes over the last ten years (you yourself Harris had a couple BSTs at one point, and found that you preferred a slightly flatter stem bite, if I remember right). And in truth, it may be flatter these days, I don't even know. It's a process, a journey towards an uncertain end. And I love every step. That's the pitch, I guess - I love pipes more than anyone, that's gotta be worth something.

    It must have been a premonition, but my wife made hush puppies to go with the sea bass tonight, but a whole different puppy than those heavy ones you get at restaurants, light as a feather. Oh yeah.

    Eating kitty is an entirely different discussion.
