Yesterday, I was looking over the update list and noticed a name I hadn't ever seen before: Mark Tinsky. I had some free time in between descriptions, as I had been on a caffeine high all day, blazing through my work in a frenzy. So, instead of manically vacuuming the floors and cleaning the other employees' computer screens while sporting penny-sized dilated pupils, I thought it in my best interest to do some research and soak up some information on the guy. I am relatively new, after all, and fancy myself an apprentice of sorts, plus, in time, I might save my fellow/senior copywriter, Eric, some annoyance when next a Mark Tinsky pipe emerges. I do have the tendency to interrupt his writing "flow" several times an hour with dumb questions like (insert Fran Drescher voice here) "Is this an Acorn or a Dublin?."
After visiting Tinsky's website -- which is a quite amusing chronicle of his life and work, by the way, ranging from everything like pseudo-philosophical musings and notes on pipe making, to a short story entitled "Coming Out of the Closet" (not what you think) -- I got a very clear picture of a man whose mind's cogs never stop turning, but whose ego seems always firmly in check. An artist too busy in his work to hunt for fame; now, there's a good line in a manifesto for the 21st century. His pipes are a testament to his search for perfection, all of them an evolutionary step forward.
This week we have some great deals in store for you, which all can be found on the Smokingpipes.com homepage banners, starting with our continuing Savinelli Clearance Event, a 20% off deal on selected pipes. We are also offering free cigar cutters with selected boxes of CAO cigars, too. As for what's new, our pipe list starts off with the man himself, Mark Tinsky. There is also a beautiful selection of L'Anatra to peruse, as well as the fittingly rustic prowess of fellow American artisan Randy Wiley, and the perfected Italian designs of Cavicchi, while dusky, smoky, warm and very affordable are ideal for descripting this week's Rossi selection. We also have some great quality designs from the likes of Brigham, Nording, Brebbia, Savinelli, and Peterson. Then of course come the estates -- a lot of them, and finally six new aromatic blends available in bulk from Altadis, each at a special introductory price, as well as an old favorite from Mac Baren.
