Danish Estates: Ben Wade Martinique Freehand

Product Number: 004-001-6489

This pipe has me grinning like a bug in a bakery. The Martinique was one of the first two Ben Wades I ever purchased (a "Golden Matt" was the other). This one is actually much nicer than the one I owned, with a more effusive execution and a grain that would blow mine out of the metaphorical water (truly insane). If you were as intrigued as I was with Danish Freehands in the late 70's and early 80's, this might just be the right piece of nostalgia for you.
