Dutch, German, Afrikaans, Czech, Slovak - all these languages, and no doubt more, use "tabak" as their word for "tobacco". It's also Polish for "snuff". So who made this pipe and where? Haven't a clue. The closest to a brand named Tabak that I could come up with was Tabak-Rohr, of Switzerland, though they use a distinctive chevron mark on their stems. Regardless, its quite a nice shape, full and smooth, pleasing in hand and broad of chamber.
