Links to articles on Pipe Makers and Brands has its own dedicated article (see Pipe Brands / Makers). Materials and Construction has a dedicated article.

The off-site links (related to pipe smoking) can be found at Pipedia Links.

The article on Pipe Making includes a great deal of information as well as an extensive list of pipe making suppliers.

We now have a new and ever expanding Glossary of pipe and tobacco related terms.
