Holy straight grain, Batman! This pipe is quite the rare find. The Private Collection is the top grade of Preben Holm pipes made by Preben himself, and the prospect of running across one that has never been smoked is almost dizzying. In an attempt to describe the quality of this, the thesaurus fails. The pictures give you an idea, but their impact pales compared to the pipe in hand. This pipe could be the crown of most any freehand collection.
