Erik Nording, having originally been schooled as a machinist and engineer, took up pipe carving as a part time hobby during the 1950s. By the mid-1960s he began professionally carving hand-made pipes in Slangerup, Denmark. Along with a number of other carvers during the 1960s, Erik Nording worked in the new Freehand style that emphasized organic flowing shapes and aesthetically unified stems and bowls.
The Freehand is Erik Nording's signature shape, though the brand also crafts traditional shapes as well. Most pipes feature preform vulcanite stems, though some feature stems of colored acrylic. Finishes for these pipes vary from smooth to rusticated, partially rusticated, or even carved designs that resemble pine cones.
