Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 553

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 553! Our featured interview tonight is with Paul Lucas.  Paul is  the pipe maker behind the Paw brand of pipes. By looking at his pipes, you would never guess that he’s only been making pipes for three years. He started in 2020 during lockdown when he had nothing to do except to make pipes. One year later, he quit his job and became a full time pipe artisan. He makes both freehand and standard shape styles, but even his standard shapes are artsy. At the top of the show, Brian will answer a listener’s question about the paper liners that are typically found inside the tins of tobacco. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Great show as always! I gave Paul a follow on IG. Stunning pipes, hard to believe he’s only been at it for a few years. Couldn’t agree with you more on pipe smokers being social. I’m in different FB groups and discords and love talking with others throughout the day about what we’re smoking. I appreciate the tribute to Mike at the end. He was the best of us. See you in Chicago!

  • I, too, keep my tinned tobacco in its original container, and use Boveda packs when I’ve opened the tin. I love the smell of the paper liners, both fresh and “aged.”
    Paul was a delightful guest with a fun back story. Your chat was engaging and truly interesting. His pipes are quite lovely, and his novel approach to standard shapes is refreshingly artistic.
    I’m a big fan of Funky Albert King. As usual, the tune was awash with great Blues licks and solos, backed by a terrific ensemble.
    Yes, pipe smoking is more than a solitary pursuit, it is most definitely a communal activity steeped in conviviality and camaraderie.
    Thanks for an always entertaining show.
