Jerry Crawford began smoking and collecting pipes in the 1970's and has been infatuated ever since. Through the years hiscollection grew to include many high grade pipes from eBay that he refurbished for myself. His journey into pipe making started a couple of years ago when the desire to make more extensive repairs led to meeting and learning the mechanics of pipe making from pipe maker and owner of Pipe Makers Emporium, Paul Hildebrand in Phoenix Arizona.
All of the pipes Jerry Crawford crafts are handmade using the best Italian briar available. The stems for each pipe are hand cut from top quality German ebonite rod stock with the exception of an occasional Bakelite or Lucite material. Each pipe is crafted individually using the highest of tolerances to promote superior smoking characteristics.
