|My name is Peder Jeppesen and my pipe maker name is Neerup, which is an old family name. I live with my family in Lejre, near one of the oldest Citys in Denmark called Roskilde.
I have made pipes in nearly 25 years; I started at Karl Erik, and continued after this at legendary Nørding, from whom I learned all steps of pipe making and decoration work.
It has always been my dream of the future to make pipes in my own name and design, now that this has been a reality; I would like to introduce my pipes to all pipe smokers.
Pipe production together with rock music is to me a kind of therapy, which gives me good inspiration. I also get great ideas and inspiration when I am fishing, running or biking in the beautiful nature around me.
My pipes are produced in briar from Corsica, Greece or in rare time Morocco. The stems are made in black acryl, sometime in Cumberland or amber.
When I am designing a model I concentrate on the proportions between the bowl, shank and mouthpiece. Its important that the pipe has a perfect balance
The smoke-qualities in a Neerup pipe is given by a deep and well finished tobacco chamber, the perfect drilled and centered smoke channel, the stem tenon fit to its puncture, and a mouthpiece with plenty of air and a pleasant bit.
To meet my costumers demands, I use a lot of time to get ideas for decorations that makes my pipes interesting and unique. Nearly all the pipes I make have some kind of decoration on the shank, the stem or at the top of the bowl.
The silver-work I use are made in registered 925 sterling silver, and are hand made by a competent silver and jewel smith, I also use different kind of exotic wood, that I mix with black rings and art amber, but its important to me, that the decoration are well fitted and makes the pipe beautiful and harmonic.
The finish of the pipes is done by concentrated grinding, rubbing, and polishing, that keeps the pipe and its colors, nice and shiny for a long time.
I hope my pipes will have your attention - all comments are welcome.
