Work of Fiction – The Plenum Mechanism

Nothing does it for me like a finely crafted book with a fantastical work of fiction inside!

Meerschaum #8 – Hedjet

I decided to dig deep into my bag of pipemaking tricks and craft a precariously perched sitter!

Volcano

This Volcano is the perfect example of how the melting pot approach of pipe design can bring strong elements together in complete harmony!

Liverpool

What a stunning example of a shape-chart perfect Liverpool, and with gorgeous high-contrast stained cross grain. But don’t take my word for it. The photos say it all!

The Meerschaum Collection

This series features high quality Turkish block meerschaum, hand-made to American high-grade artisan pipe standards, with perfect engineering, integrated push tenons, and Delrin lined mortises. They come with a handmade fitted case.

Made By Hand

"Each Cannoy pipe is made one at a time, start to finish, in my small Central Florida workshop. This way I can ensure that each piece of briar receives all of the attention to detail that it deserves."

Oil Cured

"Every pipemaker that implements an oil curing process has their own method and materials which they usualy prefer to keep secret. Mine is no different. Sure it takes alot of time, but the improved smoking qualities of the pipe, and reduced break-in period, make it all worth it!"

One of a Kind

"I don't use templates, even on my standard shaped pipes. I've made many billiards that all look like proper billiards, but set any two of them beside each other and study them... You'll find that they are both very different!"

Lifelong Enjoyment

"I construct each pipe with a level of passion bordering on obsession. My customers want pipes that will provide a pleasurable smoking experience forever! That includes the taste, looks, feel, and durability, and I exhaust every resource in an effort to provide that to them."

The Cannoy Suede Blast

I can hardly think of my seven year hiatus from pipemaking as actually being away from the art completely. There was never a day that I didn’t think about pipes...
