Danish Estates: Former Smooth Billiard

Product Number: 004-001-6354

When handling a pipe by Hans 'Former' Nielsen one can't help but feel a little privileged. The man is a living legend, having been involved with pipe making long enough to see the golden era of Danish pipe making as well as the generations of influence the aesthetic has had on contemporary pipe makers worldwide. This straight Billiard is perfectly executed, I'm not sure how one would improve the outcome, and the grain on the bowl should bring a smile to anyone who loves a great crossgrain and birdseye.
