This Nobel Prize 6000 is the highest-grade Ben Wade pipe we've ever had. In fact, they are extremely difficult to come across. One glance at the grain and it's easy to see why such a piece of briar would be coveted and the carver making this would be holding their breath with every stroke on the sanding disk, file, or even sandpaper. "Man, oh man. Please don't let there be any pits" was probably a continual thought during the carving of this piece. Collectors of Ben Wade pipes know how rare something like this is and we're very excited to be able to offer it for sale.
