My name is Martin Paljesek, I come from Slovakia and I started with pipemaking in 2011. At first as a part-time pipemaker during my university studies and since 2016 as a fulltime maker. This craft gives me a chance to apply my creativity. I try to make every pipe extraordinary. I use mostly briar from Italy and Spain and ebonite from Germany. I apply on some of my pipes decorative elements from horns and specific woods. Each pipe made by me is signed by brand Jesek. The biggest satisfaction for me is when a pipe made by me brings joy and pleasure from smoking to a customer.
