Jorgen Nielsen... what can I say that hasn't already been written and rewritten in pipe magazines and Pipedia, and echoed by the royal heralds through village streets everywhere? So I will not again reiterate how he started his extensive training at the age of ten and how he descends from a famous dynasty of pipe makers (Oops, did I just cheat?), because filler is not needed when dealing with such a well-made piece. On the one hand, given its softly rounded Egg shaped bowl, the pipe as a whole doesn't at all feel overly feminine; in fact, it comes off as rather solidly masculine, which is set off mainly by its strong, tapering shank, and perhaps less so by the sharpen cant of the rim. Accordingly, although employing Danish minimalism, doesn't seem to exude their soft, whimsical flow, opting for lines more angled, and thus achieving a bolder profile.
