Indeed, John… that is a gem! I learned a lot, I knew that tobaccopipes seemed to have a special relationship with Sutliff, I had no idea that tobaccopipes was owned by Sutliff. In hindsight, it makes sense.
The comraderie in the tobacco business between the competitors comes as no surprise to me, if you go to the pipe shows it is there to see… still good to see the confirmation from an industry insider.
Looking forward to part II!
