As I was beginning to carve my first pipes I was fortunate to meet and befriend, in short order, Jeff Gracik, Todd Johnson and Brad Pohlmann. These three men, world class and successful pipe carvers, have been utterly invaluable in my instruction and rapid progress in pipe making. Each one of them has been kind and generous with their time and I have spent many hours in their respective shops getting a Masters level education in the art and craft of making a great pipe. My current and future success I owe, in large degree, to their patient and unselfish mentoring and kind encouragement. I continue to seek out and learn from the best pipe makers that I can find, endeavoring to create the very finest smoking pipes for the discerning pipe smoker and collector. Pipe smokers are great people.
Enjoy these meticulously made stylish pipes. Maxim
