He was the President of the Canadian Leaf Tobacco Company, which was the second largest purchaser and processer of tobacco in Canada. In Pipe Parts, Brian will discuss one of the the parts of the tamper, the pick, which is used to help get the leftover ashes out, but you have to be careful with it.
