Joseph Skoda has been carving pipes for over sixteen years and has many years of experience in custom woodworking and cabinetry.

I’ve made numerous ship models from scratch, Lapstrake Skiffs, Dorys and America Cup Defenders. I love anything with a sail on it. Being accustomed to detailed work it was an easy transition to make pipes after first stumbling onto an issue of Pipes and Tobacco magazine in 1996. I’ve found it to be both satisfying and enjoyable to create a functional piece of art with clean lines, a good feel in the hand and pleasing to the eye.

With each Skoda Pipe there is a lifetime warranty against defect of materials and craftsmanship. If a problem arises I’ll repair it free of charge, replace it, give you a full refund, you can choose another pipe of equal value, or pay the difference of a more expensive pipe.
