I thought it was a VERY bold statement to make on TV. Obviously, he has a very high opinion of himself! Razz

I was offered a few Vesz estates a couple of years ago. I thought they were WAY overpriced and still feel the same way today. Rolling Eyes

He's not claiming to be the last pipe maker, just the last one capable of making one that smokes...

Vesz is hilarious. I've visited his shop at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto on more than one occasion. I think he makes fabulous pipes. But humility is not his greatest gift. Can anyone say "dead root briar"?

I did some work for a very famous artist once. When an underling brought him some ad copy for an upcoming New York art show he was sure to correct an inaccuracy about himself. He made sure to change "one of the most important artists of our time" to "THE most important artist of our time" Smile

Just one more...

Does anyone know where I can get one of those highly specialized tools he used to craft his masterpieces? I think he called one a "drill press"?

Did anyone catch where he was speaking about meerschaum. He told the interviewer it came from fossilized bone. I guess if your audience doesn't have a clue to start with, you can get away with anything.

Meerschaum is a very soft, porous, hydrous silicate of magnesia that is found in pockets within clay or serpentine deposits. Its origin is unknown, but it is believed to have been formed from the metamorphic shells and bones of tiny prehistoric sea creatures. Its geological name, assigned in the mid-nineteenth century by a German mineralogist, is sepiolite, from the Greek “Sepio,” or cuttlefish bone, which it resembles.” -Carl Ehwa, Jr. The Book of Pipes & Tobacco. 1974.

It's still basically just chalk. But what's more attention grabbing, making someone think of some prehistoric beast whose bones were used to create a pipe or cleaning erasers after school?

Regardless, Vesz seems to think he's god's gift to pipe smokers.

My worst pipe mistake ever, and most regreted one, was a Vesz pipe. Very, very poor finish, not worth a tenth of what I paied for it. Well, live and learn...

That was a dumb comment, I thought I didn't hear him correctly.............. Meerschaum is fossilized bones???......... ok lets see,

What are you smoking?
Hmmmmm...... FVF in a fossilizes T-REX femur with a face carved on the outside......... wonder how that compares to Green Briar?????? I much prefer purple!!!!!!!

What an annoying interviewer, with all the interruptions. The pipe maker is an interesting character at least, but I agree with the rest of you some of it was quite ridiculous.

Upon further review, I think he took the interviewer's question to mean "Are there any other pipemakers to continue the Vesz trade?" He answers that it's the end of the line, "no other pipemakers in my family." So maybe not quite "After me, there shall be no more"

Still a good bit of arrogance and namedropping, though. Not nearly the charming elder statesman he supposes he is.
