Customer Critique

We had the pleasure of selling one of our Morta pipes to Dave Shain.  He was nice enough and satisfied with his purchase to write the following review:

“I purchased this pipe at the NY pipe show. It is a Morta Poker with a Green Cumberland stem and white lucite shank accent. I’ve been wanting a Morta for some time and the price was one I just couldn’t pass up, plus I took pleasure in supporting some new blood in the pipe making world. The makers, Ben and Sean, have been at it for about a year and are doing some interesting stuff. You can check out their available pipes at They call their company A&G Tobacco Pipes.

My pipe. I’ve never had a Morta before, but it was pleasing to the eye and had a nice blast. Also the drilling was spot on and the stem work is very nice. I broke in the bowl with my go to Cut Virginia Plug. This is what I always smoke in a new pipe. In my opinion if the pipe will smoke a good flake well, it will smoke anything well. I found the pipe to have a perfect draw, smoked cool and dry all the way to the bottom. I have smoked it three times so far and the experience has been three perfect smokes. I am very pleased with it. The pipe also came with a big leather pouch which you will see in the pictures. Also they give their pipes names which I also like to do. My pipe is named Maleficent. I would definitely buy from these guys again.

We would like to thank everyone who came out and bought a pipe or even just stopped by to say hello at the New York Pipe Show. What a great start to a great year!

Constantly Carving

We’re a few days away from the New York Pipe Show and working to finish up the last of our work to be displayed.  We’re currently planning to bring 13 pipes which is more than either of us had anticipated.

It’s been a fast couple months as we work to develop our techniques and craftsmanship to make sure we meet our own very high standards of workmanship.  Besides the technical aspects of pipe making a lot of the enjoyment comes from developing our own personal style of carving.  When someone sees our pipes we want it to be clear that this pipe came from Cape May.

A few weeks ago we had the honor of working with photographer David Todd McCarthy on a project that he is doing for Cape May Magazine.  The experience was very exciting and humbling to have someone take such an interest in our work to want to spend their day learning about us and what we do.  The article will be featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Cape May Magazine.
