    I was motivated to do a little research on this pipe.

    from http://pipesmagazine.com/blog/pipe-m...-charlotte-nc/

    "McCranie’s also has their own line of pipes which has evolved over the years. It started with Todd and his father making pipes themselves. Then they sent Moroccan Briar that they had acquired to a factory in London to make standard, classic shapes for them. When that factory closed, they started working with Italian pipe maker Tonino Jacono, and Bill Taylor of England. They corroborated on pipes for McCranie’s and they were stamped with a TTT for Tom, Tonino, and Taylor."

    Good work Tom. I gave my pipe a quick clean up, and its first smoke last night. A well made pipe, excellent fit and finish, and a great smoker.

    I know right? That's all a pipe really has to be. But I still can't get past "the looks." Like choosing a sports car.
