Hi everyone. I was in the Pipe business for many years, worked for an online retailer, traveled to all the shows and after the retailer closed I had my own pipe restoration business. I've been out of the game for about 10 years but still have several nice pipes and enjoy VA flakes on an almost daily basis. I am actually getting back into Cigars and found this place had a Pipe Forum as well, very cool. Looking forward to reading all of the discussions here.
