I have quite a bit to say about Mastercraft as time permits, but I wrote this in 2008 to help a friend understand the relationship with Dr. Grabow.
Pipedia picked it up and that was fine by me. It may seem a little 'corny' but it was 10 years ago.
Take a few minutes and read some..

More as time permits. ted

Very interesting read. It's surprising how interconnected everything in the pipe world is.

One other thing I have to say.....

Most serious pipe smokers will have a pipe or 2 that came through the hands of Mastercraft and probably never realized it.
Whitehall (Culbro). Tinder Box (TBI) are only 2 examples.. ted

I received my Mastercraft meerschaum today. It's pretty nice! Looks like a Bakelite (or something similar) stem. The tenon is metal and is split so it provides a tight spring fit. The mortise is also metal. Seems good quality.

KK, I've got one I'll give you.... but, it will be the end of March.
I'm halfway to Florida and the pipe is in NC.
Count 20 weeks from tomorrow and you'll get it then.. ted
