Nice article ... but the comments to it are pretty indicative of the market pipe makers face today. Thanks, Dave

Good read, thanks! My two favorite parts:

Gary Dixon, for example, drills the bore for Dr. Grabow pipe stems using a wooden accelerator pedal, judging the depth of the hole using only the feeling he’s gained from 40 years on the job.

                                                                                                                         *******

At the end of a shift, all the workers at Grabow can pick up and hold the physical evidence of a day’s labor – a trophy that few can boast in the virtual workplace of 2013.

Nice article.I got a kick out of the 1 fellow over at pipemag who thought they were all made by machines.If some of the snobs would just give Grabow a chance they may actually like them.

Yeah,it amazes me that some guys think factory made pipes are entirely made by machine. As if the factories are full of big "cookie cutter",pantograph, or CNC machines. Shocked
