Ted wanted to create his ultimate pipe. He came to me with a concept and an Illustrator drawing. After a number of prototypes, refinement, and working through production refinement the first samples were run 10 months later. The original was well received, however supply issues with manufactures forced Ted to switch manufactures twice since then. The pipe was refined with each retooling culminating in the latest version... Journey3, which has higher capacity, easier cleaning, and improved filtering. Journey3s' simplicity belies the thought that went into it. Brisk sales confirm that it was well worth the effort. I've designed another pipe for Ted, which should be on the market this year. I wish I could reveal it here, but that's confidential. I can say that we're very excited about it's upcoming launch.
