Tony Fillenwarth about himself:

"I live in Mazon, Illinois which is a small town about one hour south of Chicago. I work a full time job and make pipes in my spare time. Pipe production for the year will be less than 75. My first pipe was made from a pipe kit I bought on eBay. Once I finished that first pipe I knew I would be making pipes for the rest of my life. I was completely hooked and I set about learning all I could about pipe making. I think learning new things and trying out different ideas are some of my favorite elements of pipe making. The possibilities are endless."
