In 1934 a young man from North Carolina, one Malcom McLean, saved up enough money pumping gas to buy a second-hand truck, which he in turn used to start a business hauling empty tobacco barrels. Twenty-two years of toil later he saw the launch of the SS Ideal X, the first commercially successful "container ship". It was his ship, converted from a surplus WWII military oil tanker, and it introduced a revolutionary change in international trade, drastically cutting the cost of importing goods, opening new markets for exporters, offering far greater security for valuable cargo, and eliminating the expense, long delay, and dangerous and back-breaking labor of loading and unloading ships in the traditional break-bulk manner. The idea of "containerization" (if not the process of making it a reality) seems simple enough in retrospect - but then most great ideas are.
A bit over a year ago Dan and Brian from Brigham were visiting us here in Little River, SC, and discussion turned to the "Stackers" Brigham had found considerable success with in their native market. The idea behind them was - yes, you guessed it - simple: jewelry and knick-knack boxes with a modular design. Buy a lidded one when you're starting out, and as your collection grows, all you need is to add tray pieces, everything stacking neatly together, and saving the expense and bother of finding and purchasing a whole entire new, larger container.
You may have already guessed where this was going; Sykes and Ted looked at Dan and Brian's examples, and asked them why they didn't make these for pipes. Well, as a result of that conversation, now they do. Whether you're a collector, or a smoker, or both, the benefits are the same, i.e. a simple, handsomely upholstered storage solution that can be expanded upon as your menagerie of smoking instruments and accessories grows, without the bother or wastage of space (and cash) of replacing whole racks or cabinets one after the other.
The first piece of the Pipe Stacker line, this lidded model is ideal for lighters, pipe-cleaners, and other accessories, featuring a low-profile design offering multiple compartments - perfect both as an initial piece for a full Stacker storage set-up, or, by itself, as a convenient and attractive item for your desk top or smoking room.
