Danish Estates: Ben Wade Royal Grain Smooth Freehand
Product Number: 004-001-6063
There are Ben Wades that look like English classics and then there are Ben Wades that look like Danish Freehands (I'm simplifying things here a little bit, you guys). This fella obviously falls squarely into the latter camp. But as far as Danish Freehands go, Ben Wade always had a unique style. Just like Nordings look like Nordings, and Sorens look like Sorens, Ben Wade pipes have a distinct flavor, an almost undefinable quality that separates the aesthetic from the likes of its peers. I like that in a pipe. And I love it in this pipe.
