Visiting Pavel Hap • 9th of April, 2006

Pavel Hap has been working for 18 years in pipe factory known as B.P.K. Participants of Czech pipe-smoking contests could use such signed pipes quite often. Nowadays Pavel is working by his own. He has a small workshop in his house. His pipes are perfectly made of carefully selected briar (Manno, Italy). He finishes pipes with natural components only (shelak, carnauba wax). Stems are made of ebonite or horn.

We (Michal Piszczala – PCC Poznan member and Jacek Schmidt – me) went to visit Pavel on Saturday and slept in Pardubice (old small town nearby Prosec). We saw a wonderful old downtown – it is worth to stay for a while and see those houses.

The road to Prosec leads through small villages but it is impossible to get lost. Another thing is to find Pavel's workshop. There are no signed streets. Moreover, houses are randomly numbered. So we used a mobile-phone and after five minutes we saw Pavel showing us proper route.

We were invited to Pavel's workshop where we watched pipes in work and handy stock of briar. Pavel gave us a short speach about the way he is working.

We went then to the living-room, where we talked about... pipes. I have got a deposition of 20 pipes,  Chicago Pipe Show visitors could  familiarize with.

Here you have some of them:

We chose those pipes very carefully. All made from the best quality briar.

In the end of our visit Pavel got my second book and repay me with a beautiful pipe shown below.

We completed this excellent visit with dinner party (Pavel invited us) in Skutec local restaurant.

Thank you Pavel very much for your hospitality, your time devoted to us and  for possibility of admiring your fantastic work.

Pavel Hap will exhibit and sell his pipes during Polish Championship in Krzyzowa nad Baltic Cup in Poznan personally.
