The Pipes Magazine Radio Show – Episode 249

Kevin Godbee
Thank you for joining us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show—the only radio talk show for pipe smokers and collectors. We broadcast weekly, every Tuesday at 8 pm eastern USA time and are available on nearly all podcast sites and apps. Listen on your computer, tablet, phone and even in the car! Our Featured Interview tonight is with Dave Shain. Dave has been participating in the Forums with the screen name "shaintiques" since July 2011. In 2014, he started the Free Pipe Project. Since then, he has given away free pipes to over 200 new pipe smokers, including veterans, and active military. Last month he was the very first recipient of the Master of Pipes award at The Chicago Pipe Show for his work on the project. The award is given to people under 40 years old that have made a major contribution to the hobby. His regular job is as a Youth Pastor. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

Tonight’s show is sponsored by, Cornell & Diehl, and Savinelli Pipes and Tobaccos. Please give them some consideration when making your next pipe or tobacco purchase.

  • You found a couple of good “old” smokers for us. Cushing was a pretty good Sherlock Holmes in his day.
    The other Master of Pipes was Sykes Wilford of Smoking Pipes (Laudisi). Dave has a wonderful collection of good pipe is his collection. He’s doing good work in getting pipes do those that need them.

  • A great interview with Dave, good choice and a perfect person to honor with the Master of Pipes honor!
    I have to disagree with your advice to buff off oxidation on a stem. Trying to buff off heavy oxidation would most likely alter the stem profile and still not get all of the oxidation. It can also create waves. A better procedure is to use different grades of sandpaper, then use the buffer to finish the shine. If your buffer is throwing parts at you (vs away), the buffer is either oriented or wired wrong. It should spin counter-clockwise, and away from the operator. I hold the pipe on the pad at around the 7 o’clock position.
