New "Gallery"-Style View Goes Live Today
Good news, everyone! Introduced with today's update is our snazzy new "gallery" style product-view format for items featuring more than one photograph. No longer will multiple shots of a pipe be hand-stitched together into one big image file; rather, you'll now be able to consider each side, each angle, individually, as if you were attending your own private art show, thumb and index finger placed contemplatively on chin.
You might notice the lack of a copyright stamp on the photographs. We're still trying to sort out the best way to handle this and yet still maintain an efficient workflow, but of course, all images are sill copyright by Smokingpipes.com. That said, we don't mind if you share them; as a matter of fact I still get a kick out of seeing our photographs posted in forums and what-not. We just ask that you give us credit or link to us.
So give the new format a test-drive. It's featured on many of the great pipes going up today-- pipes from the likes of Former, Senatorov, Tsuge, Rinaldo, Radice, Castello, Butz-Choquin, Savinelli, and Peterson, along with estate pipes from England and Italy.
This update also features beautiful new humidors from Savoy, new sticks from Alec Bradley with which to fill them, pipe cases and tobacco pouches from Dunhill and Savinelli!
Lastly, we've received more tins of Mac Barren's HH Old Dark Fired Tobacco. "Mac Baren has hit one out of the park." says Rudolph A. in a customer review, and from my own experiences with this blend, I'm inclined to agree. So, if you haven't tried this one yet, I highly recommend picking a tin or three up.
