Ernie Markle is a great example of the new movement in American high grade pipes. Ernie makes pipes part-time, in addition to his career in finance, from his home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Having fallen in love with pipes and taken with the idea of the craft itself, Ernie sought out people that could teach him the craft, it being something of a departure from his education background in Philosophy and Spanish or his chosen profession. Ernie has worked with top American pipe makers Jeff Gracik and Brad Pohlmann in their workshops and has been slowly cultivating his craft over the past couple of years.
