Jorgen Larsen Smooth Tadpole (H)

Product Number: 004-001-6109

Jorgen Larsen was born in the aftermath of WWII, 1947, and has been making pipes since 1967. Being one of the first high-grade Danish pipemakers would be sufficient to seal his place within the Danish carving pantheon alone. His work, however, starting with his 'Jorgen L' brand in the late 1960s, his unflagging devotion and artistry during his 30 year stint with the late Peter Stokkebye, and now continued with the return of 'Jorgen L', furthers that reputation; not only as a carver of the first water, but as a master whose work is one of the most readily identifiable in the world.

When he was the Maestro at Stokkebye, his output ran from about 50-90 pipes per year. Since I have been following him, I have yet to hear of his production exceeding 100 pieces per annum. This Jorgen pipe almost jumps from the case by itself. "Tadpole" is a very cool name for the shape, and is remarkably apt. In addition to a splendid shaping, this amiable amphibian boasts an admirable flame grain 'below the water line', and a dauntingly handsome birdseye across the entirety of the curvacious upper plane.
