John Harden – Matches 860 – RIP

I am sorry to have to report that John Harden – Matches 860 – has died at the way-too-young age of 64. He was a pillar of the YouTube Pipe Community and will be missed. I had only a little correspondence with him, but I could tell he was a nice guy, always ready to help. The pipe world has lost a good one.

I know what I will be doing today: smoking Haunted Bookshop in my Savinelli Clark’s Favorite, a pipe that I bought after seeing him smoke one during one of his live streams a couple of years ago.
