About me

I am not perfect, but this does not prevent me from pursuing perfection.

My Story

      I'm William. My first memory of smoking pipe was in the year 2007 because I bought a decent pipe for my father on Father’s Day with high expectation. However, it turned out I liked it way more than my father. As time goes by, I purchased a lot of smoking pipes myself. After a certain period of learning and observing, I started to wonder whether I could enhance smoking experience through adjusting and perfecting some tiny details. Gradually, I become a pipe craftsman.

      At the very beginning of my pipe maker path, I encountered so many obstacles such as network control which prevented me from accessing google, facebook, youtube, and twitter etc. for useful information. Let alone the “driving me nuts” low speed. I had to work on my own, thinking over and over again before putting into practice which was rather time consuming. Thanks to my best friend, I got to know VPN that unlocked my way to abundant resources and knowledge.

      As an independent pipe maker, I sincerely appreciate the creation process and focus on perfecting my crafts. Not only have I applied all kinds of materials, tools and special design on my pipe,  but also engaged in making designated hand tools for my production. It has been 3 whole years since my first basic equipment setting. Fortunately, my ideas have come into reality, my pipes have presented infinite variety, and my inspiration have been more innovative and characterized. It all turns out to be worthwhile by the time more and more people starting to genuinely acknowledge and like my work. Hereby I want to express my faithful gratitude to my family and friends who have belief in me. To my baby boy as well, born in 2018, he has been keeping me too busy looking after him to work freely. So I’m forced to squeeze spare time for further improvement, thinking throughly and learning hard to pave my way to future development.

      Since my facebook homepage began functional, I got frequent inquiry about my own website. That’s the reason why I set up this online shop. Through this platform, I look forward to making friends with smoking pipe lover and collector. Last but not least, hope you like my work. Have a great time.

      The reason why my pipe named by snow3year instead of my real name is I’ve been fascinated by poem since childhood and it was my nickname back then. I wanted a special and imaginative name when I first encountered computer and internet, as you know it’s always required to login in. I had no idea I would apply it to a specific item, it just came to my mind while making pipes. I decided to use it as my unique trademark immediately, without any hesitation. From my perspective, an abstract concept shall inspire imagination rather than picture a particular people while experiencing smoking pipe journey.
