Danish Estates: Sailor Sandblasted Billiard (by Stanwell) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-001-36151

Made for Stanwell's discontinued Sailor sub-brand, this Billiard is a classic, timeless rendition of the shape. A pert, upright bowl is positioned at the fore, formed by straight walls traveling from heel to rim. Out back is a balanced shank that joins to a gradually tapering stem, the pair creating a sleek, streamlined profile. Dressing the stummel is a crisp, inky sandblast that accentuates the briar's grain and offers some rugged texture for the hand to appreciate.

Founded by Poul Nielsen, the Stanwell marque was a trailblazer for Danish pipe-making as it found its place on the global stage. During World War II, with briar supplies low and English pipes in short supply, Poul Nielsen sought to meet the needs of Danish pipe smokers by fashioning his own from beechwood under his company, Kyringe. Once the war was over and briar supply lines recovered, Nielsen changed the company's name to Stanwell, and the company would go on to collaborate with Danish pipe-making legends such as Sixten Ivarsson, Jess Chonowitsch, and Tom Eltang.
