From time to time a pipe maker will either discover work that was started eons before and never finished, or simply hold on to the same in some small cabinet until some interior voice says "let's finish". In 1970 Teddy Knudsen was working for Anne Julie creating high grade pipes, but felt woefully under compensated. Well, when your elder brother is the legendary Sven Knudsen, you have some options open to you that many who share your position do not. Sven and Teddy formed Dantonian PipeWorks, and by 1971, already had produced a catalog in English. The immaculately grained specimen before you was started decades ago by the Knudsen/Dantonian company and finished by Teddy and Lasse Skovgaard a few years back. We only had a few of these, and this one made it back as a gently used estate.
