Having been making pipes since 1969, Andrew Marks is one of the premier pipemakers in the country. In 2005 he was elected into the Pipe Smoker's Hall of Fame, a group which places him in the company of folks like Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Ernest Hemingway, Bing Crosby, Babe Ruth, Norman Rockwell, & others. He is truly a highly respected artist in the world of smoking pipes.
There are many parallels to what Andrew & I do. For example, you can order a pipe from him from his many different styles & models of pipes, or you can have him make a custom pipe just for you. His talents, experience, & abilities allow him to create a pipe that you envision. All his pipes are made from the finest materials that he has selected & all hand made by him in his shop.
"Marks' Pipes smoke like mellow, broken-in briar friends from the initial smoke. It's truly an amazing experience. Be warned. After an encounter with an Andrew Marks Pipe, the discerning smoker will find it difficult to resist seeking out addition Andrew Marks Pipes. They are that good."
