In his previous life Kaz was a Graduate Gemologist, but after moving from Mississippi with his wife Mary, he now applies his keen attention to detail to a different kind of gem -- Pipes. Whether you are searching for a one-of-a-kind artisan pipe or that perfect classic from a well respected marque, our Pipe Specialist Kaz is here to personally assist you in finding it. Along with Lakeland and dark Virginia flakes, Kaz also finds pleasure in cooking, traveling, reading, and engaging in philosophical debates. He has a fondness for spicy Thai curry, but we have also discovered that he can't say no to a well-brewed cup Assam or Lapsang Souchong (However Andrew Wike has described him as appearing austere when drinking from a proper tea cup).
