    I decided to go a bit "old school" with my latest commission from local pipe maker, Jason Zeiner. I asked Jason for a classic pot shape with a full saddle stem. I let him run with it from there and, in my opinion, he knocked it out of the box. I'll collect the pipe at our next club meeting later this month.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Can't beat it. Amazing. I like the simplicity of the shape with the flair of the grain, bright stain, and colorful stem. That pipe is a heartthrob.

    I don't like pots, but the craftsmanship on that one is super and the stem is quite cool. I also like how he humbly stamps them on the bottom, not the sides.

    Flashy as hockey puck. The JSZ three digit code and blue as hockey puck Cumberland stem. Hell yes! That pipe does not give a hockey puck! Nice make, good get. Enjoy!

    He chased the grain and gave it a waist. A great pot. Full saddle to boot.

    A nice Labor Day gift.

    I'm not much on straight pots in general but the stem on that one really makes it pop. Congrats. Also does this craver have a website or anything or does he mostly only do local?

    acidpox, you can contact Jason at jasonzeiner@gmail.com. I'm sure he would welcome commissions from any interested parties. He is also a master woodworker so you will be well served.

    Man, that's gorgeous, congrats! Love the shape, love the colors. Is there any place online to see more of his stuff (I don't do facebook, and it's a PITA to look at his FB page without an account) and basic pricing info?

    Whoa... pots are my favorite too, and this one has REALLY caught my eye. I just PMd Jason on Facebook to inquire about commissioning my own.

    JEALOUS!

    Pots are my favourite shapes. Your pipe has a very “yachty” look to it. Very nice.

    Back to the pipe after 5+ years.

    The pipe is very nice but that blue stem is stunning!
