Estate Pipes: Danish Estate: Kai Nielsen Straight Grain Tomato with Horn (VVVV)  

Product Number: 004-001-5666

Danish design meets something that strikes me as reminiscent of Art Deco here, though as odd as that combination may sound, it's not a big surprise. These crisply tapered, multi-beadlined stem bases are something Kai Nielsen has used quite often before, though I'll admit I don't know if he's still doing them. (The last pipe we carried with a stem like this which had a definite date was from 2003.) Kai's father, Viggo Nielsen, has a thing for stem-bases that play a strong part in a pipe's overall design, and I would hazard to guess Kai's use of these was the result of his influence. Getting away from the beautifully-patterned cumberland and its modernistic design, however, we find things are rather more traditional, with a handsome horn mount preceding a broad, rounded bent Tomato shape of classic Danish smoothness, and simply packed with flame grain and birdseye as well.
