Thank you so much for visiting my site! It has been a labor of love, and I hope you enjoy it as both an online store, and a resource for information about Pipe Clubs and various tips for enjoying your pipes!

The main idea behind it all was to create a site that I wished I had found many years ago when I was attempting to get into pipe smoking; a site that would provide informative content about the hobby, as well as helping me in the decision-making process for future acquisitions. 

Back when I had only a few pipes and was looking to expand my collection, I searched various online stores and was staggered by the sheer amount of choices available on the market today! Although I now love that variety about the Pipe World, at first I found it quite daunting to decide what pipes and tobaccos to buy. Over the years, I've accumulated a pretty decent pipe collection and tobacco cellar, and I've learned a good bit through trial and error. 

Although I have learned the kinds of pipes I like, I've also spent a lot of money on pipes that I didn't. I wish I hadn't wasted money on lower quality pipes that sometimes were the same amount of money as better pipes I could have bought instead. And as things progressed, there were times I spent way more than I ever thought I would on a single pipe, only to find that the extra expense didn't necessarily buy me a better smoking experience. It would have been so nice to have found a website that could have guided me in my purchases a bit more.

I want The Pipe Nook to be that informative website for others just getting into pipe smoking, as well as for those who are looking to build their pipe collections from a handful of pipes into something more. Pipe collecting can be a fun hobby, but it can also be an expensive one. My site is designed to help thin the herd of choices out there today.

New and nearly-new pipe smokers can find helpful information in the "Pipe Smoking Tips" section of the blog page, including tips for how to smoke a pipe, as well as pipe tobacco recommendations. In addition, you can get to know me a bit better on my YouTube channel, where I've been a member of the YouTube Pipe Community since 2013. I also have a 25-Part "How to Smoke a Pipe" video series I did some time back that lives on my YouTube channel's "Playlists" page. Check out the link below!

I've found what I believe to be the "sweet spot" for pipes where the best possible quality meets the best possible value, and I carry only pipes from companies that I feel best exemplify that area of the market.  It's a very good place to begin your pipe smoking or pipe collecting journey.  I carry only pipe brands that I personally smoke and enjoy, from companies that I can stand behind based on my own experiences as a pipe smoker.

I wish you the best in your pipe smoking and pipe collecting adventures, and if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me.  I'll do my best to help!

Keep 'em lit,
