A long list of great carvers made pipes at W.O. Larsen, from Sixten to Former, to Teddy Knudsen and Jess Chonowitsch. So who made this one? I couldn't say. It's proportions and firmness had me thinking Former at first, but the flow and posture suggest Chonowitsch is more likely - or failing that, someone who was taking inspiration from Jess. Even if it is only the latter, whoever they were, they did a fine job of it.
