My husband is big into pipe smoking, so I'll have to tell him about your site. We were somewhat considering an immigration to New Zealand, and he had me research if there's many people who pipe smoke there. I'm sure he'll like the pipes you have. Thank you, nice site, and nice pipes!

Nice cross grain, hand cut Cumberland stem...

Hi Jan

If you could please alter the bend of the stem of this pipe to form a more harmonious curve to complement the outside radius of the horn outline, I would be more than happy to add this otherwise perfect pipe to my collection.

North Wind "Red Tiger"
Larger 1/4 bent sandblast...great outdoor pipe
$US 68.50
Dear Jan,

I am a bit of a traditionalist. I like a classic shape of pipe. What I enjoy in their appearance is in the wood grain. Would you be able to tell me the price of the north wind pipes in red or sand blasted and also the price of the Polo style pipe in the red tiger finish.

Was a pipe smoker for many years. Now I smoke just when I am away from home on a weekend fishing. I used to like smoking Edgworth burley and Balkan Sobranie tobaccos but they are now out of bussiness. I have found a replacement for the later. It is called Sasieni and I have been able to import this from the States. Do you know of an Edgeworth type of tobacco that may be available. Would you also happen to know if Mac Barrens Latakia blend is still in production.

New Sea Shell shape sandblast, hand cut stem...
$US 295
I am now the proud owner of this pipe. The design and construction of the pipe is first-rate. The draw is smooth and open-enough, without being too
open. The pipe smokes cool and completely dry to the bottom of the bowl, burning all the tobacco. The pipe was a gift and is my first Zeman pipe, but won't be my last.

Freehand "Signature" with great straight grain and PLENTY of birds eyes on the bottom, Lucite stem, beautiful pipe...
$US 360
Hi there,

I really enjoyed looking at the superb craftsmanship of the various pipes. I particularly liked the Signature Etnus. I also really like the work you have done with the unique colored acrylic mouthpiece on the Trilobite, and La Pirana. Is there a price list for any of your signature pieces?

This is about your new Signature, Odysseus. Simply magnificent pipe! A real work of art and I wish I could afford it right now or it would be sold. But I love the pipe!

Dear Jan

Rather casually I've visited your website. Astonishing to me what I could see. My compliments. Luckily I shall come over to NZ next Feb/March. So a visit to Nelson (within the wonderful Marlborough Sounds) is already a MUST. I am delighted in having this opportunity to get to know you personally. It seems that I've already been captured by one or two favourites (Neptune Superia and Zara), but we will see.
Good luck and best wishes, kindest regards, yours

Vesuvius-very nice pipe and clear grain. I like your style of showing your pipe.It's clear and clean photos.I'm on my way to make a pipes and all the websites have their own information. These information help me to understand the process of making pipes but the details still the pipe maker secret such as the kind of stain use to stain the briar.I think by provide quite details of information could help others especially a new pipe maker.

Anyway,thank you.

Dear Jan

I am a pipe smoker and I have just been admiring your lovely selection of pipes. Wow some real beautys there. Do you have full price lists at all?

I am trying to form a NZ Smokers Federation to act as a national lobby group for the rights of tobacco consumers here in New Zealand. Anyone interested should contact me at smokersunited@hotmail.co.nz

Well ill let you get back to the pipe manufacturing.

Dear Mr. Zeman!

As a Tolkien's fan, I am interested if you make custom pipes according to the draft? I don't have much money (I'm just a student) nor finished idea of that pipe, but I would like to know if you would make such pipe for me some day. Of course, I've noticed your Lord of the Pipes section (and also have plans to buy at least one of those), but this idea crossed my mind last year and I suppose this is a great opportunity to get in possession of such unique masterpiece.

I wish you to continue to create this unbelievably pleasant pipes!

Yours sincerely,

El Torro "Extra"
Stunning horned shape with grain to match...
$US 500
This is the third pipe I've purchase from Jan. It is a truely stunning block of briar. The pictures simply don't do it justice.
It smokes like a dream as do his previous two pipes.
It is the pride of my collection and I feel like I'm on cloud 9 with it between my lips puffing away, a copy of Pipes & Tobaccos magazine or the latest issue of The Pipe Collector in front of me to read, and a "beverage" at my side.
Jan's pipes make life better!!!
