Julius Vesz is the world's best pipe maker. He's been at it for 50 years, and 30 in his shop in the Fairmont Royal York downtown Toronto. He's made them for Bing Crosby, Gerald Ford, Pavarotti and more famous people you'd recognize.
That's sick, but what I liked best about him was his outlook on life... he's so... relentless. He walks 4km to work everyday no matter the weather and his strongest advice to me was to reacquaint myself with nature. But oh Julius, I'm not natural with nature.
