My name is Scott KleinScott Klein.  I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago IL.  As a young man and high school student, I studied all aspects of the various trades, which consisted of: building construction, wood shop, automotive technology, small scale 3D design, electrical, and plumbing.  Needless to say I am always looking for ways to sharpen and perfect my talents.  After High school, I worked for 6 years in various trades including but not limited to: construction, custom woodwork, painting, and remodeling. One night, by chance, my girlfriend and I were visiting her father, who was a good friend of Alex Florov.  He was the first to introduce me to Alex’s website, and through the night (and following weeks) I studied his work and determined I had a deep interest in attempting this great feat.  Shortly after my initial mind blowing introduction to pipes I got in contact with Alex, and being a very generous and inspiring man he agreed to teach me to make pipes from the beginning to end of the process.

As I got to skip the initial trial of pre-bored/assembled pipe kits, I have been lucky to jump right in to hand: turned, milled, and assembled pipes.  This has given me a lot of free play to work and develop my artistic ability.  All of my pipes are made from The finest materials from all over the world, and are completely handmade/assembled in the USA.

For now, my high grade pipes are stamped with my handwritten initials SK
