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 Nathan Davis, a.k.a. CrashTheGrey in the PipesMagazine Forums. He has been an active member of the forums since December 2015, posting almost every day. Nathan has been a huge collector of Kaywoodie pipes and has become an expert on them. This lead him to start his brand new business to spread the word on how great Kaywoodie pipes are, and to directly increase distribution with his website In Pipe Parts, we will have a gift guide for pipe smokers for Father’s Day. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • I haven’t been commenting lately, but I’m back. I’ve been busy going through all the past shows for the second time. Still enjoying them. Great show tonight. I’ve checked out Nathan’s website and expect I will buy something eventually. What a great evolution from collector to retailer. Enjoyed the music, surprisingly.As for the rant, can’t agree more and this is only one of the many problems with this administration. Finally, a reminder: you promised to do an update on the tales of the FDA someday soon. Cheers

  • Thank you CrashTheGrey for making the purchase of Kaywoodies online a good experience. About 10 years ago, I wanted to add some Kaywoodies to my collection, and I bought two online from the manufacturer- they are both great smokers but I found the buying experience very confusing. I wasn’t sure what line I was buying or the stem material. Nathan’s website is great and makes buying an informed and straightforward experience. Unfortunately, the pipe I had my eye on was already sold. I can see I am not the first one there! I will keep looking.
    I have never really understood the “stinger”. Is it supposed to cool and dry the smoke? Does it work, or is it just a marketing gimmick? Is that why modern pipe smokers prefer Kaywoodies without them? Thanks for another great show!

  • I’ll second the idea of purchasing a book for a pipe smoker, particularly “Sherlock Holmes and the Undead Client”.
    Nathan Davis was a good interview. Upstate New York is some of the most beautiful in the country. I don’t which direction from Albany he is but Cooperstown is just 90 minutes from Albany. Good luck in your search for a 1919 Kaywoodie.

  • Love Joseph Spence! I bought one of his Folkways LPs back in the day.
    Crash was a terrific guest. His interest in and promotion of Kaywoodie is to be commended. I enjoyed the history and lore he shared with us. And, it’s always nice to hear directly from a fellow Forum member.
    Ghost is right, get someone to buy you a book. “The Peterson Pipe” is a magnificent book. If no one buys it for you, get it for yourself.
    As for your rant, Amen.

  • Thank you for having me. It is amazing to listen to 351 episodes and then be featured. Diligas, the stinger can reduce moisture and help learn a good cadence, but yes, the modern smoker prefers an open draw.
