Welcome to Pipedia!

The scope of Pipedia is continually expanding through its contributors. It has become an extensive repository of information on tobacco pipes and their makers. Knowledgeable enthusiasts, collectors, pipe makers, and tobacconists are welcome and encouraged to contribute to Pipedia. Pipe smoking is allowed, encouraged, and facilitated on this site.

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.
