The day has finally come--The Pipe Nook is officially underway! It has taken much to get here, and I can't tell you how excited I am to finally be at this point, and able to offer you the caliber of smoking instruments that we have available! There are many more pipe brands, series and shapes to come in the near future, but I'm pleased to begin with the pipes that really kick-started my own pipe smoking journey: Savinelli.
The first pipe that got me to fall in love with pipe smoking after many previous attempts, was the venerable Savinelli 320. I'd literally never had a smoke like that before. Since then, my love and appreciation for Savinelli pipes has only deepened, and I think it's fitting that I start with 3 of the most tried and true series in the expansive Savinelli lineup: Bing's Favorite, Roma, and Trevi.
I know you can buy your pipes at any number of online retailers, and have so much more of a selection that it would literally make your head spin. But that's not what the Pipe Nook is about. Every pipe brand, line, shape and finish that I carry is cherry-picked to help both the brand new pipe smoker and the burgeoning pipe collector in their decision-making process. I will only carry pipe brands and lines that I can personally stand behind. As I'm writing this, I'm contentedly puffing on one of my favorite pipes, a Roma 623. In short, I've done all kinds of analyzing, comparing and obsessing, so you don't have to. These pipes are the best quality and value offered today, and I can't wait to help you find either that perfect first pipe, or the next treasured piece in your collection.
So welcome! Poke around, make yourself at home, and tell me what you think!
Keep 'em lit,

Happy IPSD 2016, everyone! If you're a pipe smoker, this is your day to kick back, have a bowl, and reflect on the many ways that pipe smoking enriches your life. For me, pipe smoking is relaxing, stress relieving, and just plain fun. It can help create a time of thought when you're alone, and it can make times with friends even better. It can help you focus on the simple joys of all the senses, as you feel the pipe's finish and shape while holding it, gaze at the beauty of a well-crafted smoking instrument, hear the gentle sizzle of a pipe that's "in the chuff," smell the aroma of a fine tobacco blend, and of course taste any number of flavors available today.
I so wish I were able to announce the Grand Opening of The Pipe Nook today; however, it will most likely be the beginning of March before I have the shop all stocked up and ready to go. In the meantime, I'll be posting some Estate Pipes for sale, so check back for that. While I don't have any new pipes up for sale just yet, I can't contain my excitement and have to share my big news of the initial offerings I'll be carrying. I'm proud to announce that the first three lines of pipes I'll have available are my favorite three factory pipe brands: Savinelli, Stanwell, and Missouri Meerschaum!
I'll have more information available in the days to come, but for now I just wanted to check in and share the news. Don't forget to take some time out for a pipe today!
