Peder Jeppsen from Neerup produces some of my favourite pipes on the market. I am pleased to say we have just received a shipment of pipes from him which are now on the site!
Neerup pipes are unlike anything else on the market. Each pipe is completely unique and famous for their abstract stems. Not only do these pipes look the part they are also an incredible smoke. The large bowls give a good length smoke. I am lucky enough to have a couple in my personal collection, they are my go to pipe for a long smoke in front of the fire or when stuck in the office late at night.
If you haven't already got a Neerup in your collection I would definitely recommend trying one. They are available in both 9mm filter and a non filter option. They also do some stunning Churchwardens. The brains and skilled hands behind Neerup Pipes is Peder Jeppsen, he started carving pipes as soon as he left school in 1977. Initially working with Karl Erik Ottendahl he then worked for almost 18 years with Erik Nording. He then left in 2002 and set up by himself. To me what makes these pipes so special is the individuality of each pipe. It is a line we shall be growing furthermore in the future.
