Danish Estates: Brakner Antique Rusticated Billiard (102)

Product Number: 004-001-5664

The late Peter Brakner (a.k.a. Peter Micklson) may not be a familiar name to many of us, but it would seem he bumped into, and in at least one case influenced, some very well known pipemakers during his day. He started out at the Teofil Suhr workshop, where Sixten Ivarsson was the foreman at the time, and after Sixten left he brought in Poul Rasmussen and gave him a crash-course in crafting pipes before in turn leaving to work for Poul Nielsen of Stanwell fame. The "Antique" finish seen on this particular trim classic was the product of a secret "micro-rustication" technique, which he evidently only ever showed to one person - Kai Nielsen's mother. It would later be inspire Kent Rasmussen to develop his own fine-textured style.
