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 Thursday 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 pipe maker Nate King. Nate makes some fantastic morta and briar pipes in modernized-standard and freehand shapes. He started his career in the Indy racing business and has been making pipes for over 5-years. In our “Pipe Parts” educational segment, Brian will discuss a brief history of Caminetto Pipes. You may be familiar with Radice and Ascorti pipes – well, these guys were also part of Caminetto. It’s an interesting story how things evolved and ended.  Our pipes are packed, drinks are poured, the sound check is done … pack a pipe, sit back, relax and join us for The Pipes Magazine Radio Show.

  • HI Brian,
    Camminetto pipes are nice pipes. They smoke well and can be still found at a good price. A fire takes care of everything!
    Nate King – I do not have any of his pipes – not yet. Interesting interview. I agree, the Chicago Show is a great experience.
    Let me smoke my pipe – again, interesting. Hairy Persian Passion – LOL.
    OK on the rant. My rant is about software that automatically corrects spelling, capitalization, etc. If you talk about Virginia tobacco (small v) you can see it capitalizes it automatically. If you are writing about Virginia tobacco it becomes a PITA. Maybe I need to enter “virginia” in my dictionary.
    Keep up the good shows.

  • I happen to have a Caminetto pipe. It is a Caminetto Business 194. It is my favorite pipe to smoke. Interesting story on the Caminetto company, I never knew that the factory burned to the ground. So does that make my Caminetto rare? Great interview with Nate King. I also want to eventually get one of Nate King’s gear punk or steam punk pipes. Great rant. I agree with you. It’s crazy of Google to think that that Indian statue was a real human being. Can’t wait ‘til next week’s show.

  • In the mid-70’s I bought a Caminetto Business pipe and still have it. I don’t smoke it for whatever reason but keep it for sentimental reasons.
    Met Nate King at the last Chicago show when he brought his ultra cool stem punk pipes. They really had that Agatha Heterodyne vibe.
    The amateur submission was funny. I have a Himalayan that could supply him with enough hair for an eternity without any shaving. She is a walking snow storm. The guy did miss out on mentioning that roadkill was his favorite source of deer tongue.
    The cigar store Indian was blurred because he was the much maligned Kaw-Liga who has been in the witness protection program since Hank Williams died.

  • I figured the Indian was blurred because he was a…..(shhhh) smoker. Gotta love the little glimpses into the techno-flaws that remind us that it still helps to have a reasoning brain behind the scenes. Really enjoyed the interview with Nate King, so many really cool people in our hobby. Could be the beginning of a joke! A rabbi, a gear head and a punk rocker walk into a pipe shop….
    I’m not witty enough to actually finish it, might be why I haven’t won the cartoon caption yet! Way to trooper through the snow and ice.
