I started Dead Guy Pipes after making my first pipe to enter into the Greater Kansas City Pipe Club 2011 Pipe and Tobacco Show Carving Contest.

Metal body pipes are not a common collector item.
I know this.

I decided to make them because the other metals on the market today, while being great pipes, have not changed much.

The name:
Most people ask about the name on my pipes.

There is a story, short but still a story.

My origianl drawings and designs for my pipes where infulenced largely by the human anatomy, mainly the skeleton.

The name seems to stick in peoples head and lets them remember who I am.
