It's been awhile since I've seen a pipe made Svend Axel Celius that was in such pristine shape. Seriously, aside from some rim darkening, which is pretty standard in a pipe that's 1) been smoked, and was 2) made AT LEAST thirteen or fourteen years ago, this pipe is in top notch condition. Sadly Svend is no longer with us, so the estate market will have to be your go-to venue for the late maker's work. Oh, and did I mention that this is beautifully grained for a Bishop?
