I'm very pleased to announce the very first Independent Artisan Pipe Maker whose creations are available at The Pipe Nook! Tom Correll is an Artisan Pipe Maker who makes his home in Indiana. I find his pieces remarkable for many reasons, most notably his use of extraordinary stem and accent ring materials. He's been busy these past couple of years making quite the name for himself in pipe circles.
Tom has a passion for pipe making. He has dedicated himself to learning the artisan craft, and to creating 100% handmade, yet affordable Artisan briar pipes. Tom realizes the pipes he makes will last for generations and he wants to produce smoking pipes that will show a love for the hobby, an attention to detail, and quality craftsmanship. You can follow Tom at the following locations:

I've known Tom for the past 2 or 3 years as a fellow member of the YouTube Pipe Community, and I've been very anxious to obtain one of his pieces for my personal collection. This year marked his first as a Pipe seller at the Chicagoland Pipe Show. He went with 8 pipes, and came home with only 3; for a first-year Pipe Maker, to sell more than one pipe at Chicagoland is quite an achievement. I reached out to Tom and he was gracious enough to work out a deal with me for all 3 pipes he had left. One of them is now a fixture of my collection, and 2 are now available here on The Pipe Nook!
I hope this is just the beginning of many more affordably-priced Artisan Pipe Makers to be represented here on my site. Stay tuned for another to be added very soon!
Keep 'em lit,
