Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 587

Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 587. Our featured interview tonight is with Pipe Artisan Jeff Gracik. Our regular listeners will know Jeff from our ongoing series, “Ask the Pipemaker”. Jeff makes J. Alan Pipes and is an expert, artisan pipe maker for 20-years. He is involved in a new line of pipes that are exact replicas of hand-made artisan pipes. Jeff is working with two pipe makers in China, GH Zhang and Ping Zhan, who have set up CNC Manufacturing / Machining. With this they can replicate complicated hand designed pipes. They will be limited production, co-branded pipes that are licensed and authorized by the pipe makers. The pipe makers get a cut of each pipe sold, and reach a new audience that normally didn’t have the budget for one of their hand made pipes. In Pipe Parts, Brian will review a tin of Sutliff Cringle Flake from 2020.
