Former Danish Egg #21884EG
A group 6 in size, and in exc. cond., with an open draw.  
Consider that this shape is by its nature one of the most
comfortable of fits, and the addition of a sandblast texture only
enhances the experience.  I like it that Former has never
succumbed to patronizing his clients with a grading system,
showing that he respects their ability to discern quality without
requiring the hand-holding of grades.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.65" long.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $950.

Jørn Larsen #218178BK
Another beautiful shape from Jørn Larsen.  Can we agree that
this shank shape is a signature design of Jørn's?  The bowl, a
Brandy, is super comfortable in the hand and the brindle stem
beautifully complements the dark stain.  The draw is open.  Be-
cause of the bowl shape, overall I'd say it's a Grp. 5 in size, but
the chamber capacity is probably closer to a Grp. 4.  All pipes
catch my wandering eyes, but this combination does so more
than most.  I think it's beautiful.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
4.7" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $450
 
Jorgen L  Grade M #122493
An atypical asymmetrical shape from this all-time great pipe
maker.  Still, the pipe fits comfortably in either the right or left
hand.  The bowl diameter is quite large, with my thumb easily
fitting into the chamber.  The draw is wide-open and a pipe
cleaner goes easily to the bottom of the bowl.  Vulcanite stem.
5.7" long, bowl 1.35" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 66 grams. $245
S. Bang by Ulf Noltensmeier #102169BK
Beautifully balanced carving job, with all the right notes being
struck by Ulf.  So, although it's fairly large (a Grp. 6) it doesn't
give that impression at all.  The draw is open, the drilling spot
on and the grain is good all around the bowl.  The hand-cut
stem is vulcanite, for comfort and the pipe is unsmoked.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $3500.
Johs #331169PJ
Large...a Grp. 6 or even 7 with a wide-open draw & the ability to
take a cleaner straight to the chamber bottom.  The grain and
light stain, showing all aspects of the briar is a plus, too.  The
pipe is unsmoked and the stem is vulcanite.
5.95" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $95.
Kurt Balleby 0 Grade #117173
This pipe is so well done that I feel if I extol its virtues as I'd like,
it will sound like a hard sell, which I don't do.  I'm not usually in
love with these non-traditional shapes, but this pipe has that je
ne sais quoi that makes it special, including a wonderfully
comfortable stem, a near virgin stain and a unique sand blast
that makes one of the bowl sides seem as though it were finely
rusticated.  A Grp. 4 in size, it has an open draw and takes a
pipe cleaner to the bottom of the tobacco chamber.  New.
5.2" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. $1320.
Joao Reis #112030RG
This pipe appears to be strongly influenced by both Tom Eltang
and Bo Nordh.  The consignor stated that Reis worked with
Nordh and we know he moved from Portugal to live in Denmark.
This beautiful piece is unsmoked, has an open draw and is well
constructed with the draft opening right at the bottom of the
bowl.  Although it is not a big pipe, the chamber capacity will
provide for a smoke that is at least average in lenght and
probably longer.  
5 1/4" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 1/2 oz., 43 grams. $1145
Celius Fantasy #821460
The condition is excellent, the draw open and the bowl is quite
tall, making it easy to wrap your hand around the pipe.  The
flat bottom allows it to sit up at a nice angle.  Vulcanite stem.
6 5/8" long, bowl 2.5" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 74 grams. $115.
Brakner Bella Danica Hand Cut # 117135 (RESERVED)
My guess is that the "Bella Danica" means something like
Beautiful Dane.  I've been to Denmark a number of times & have
seen some beautiful Danes myself.  One of them, clerking in a
used bookstore, had a face that was screaming to be kissed.
Alas, not by me.  Oh.  Pipes.  I forgot.  Anyhow, this pipe is in
beautiful cond. and is beautifully cut and deserves to be owned
and smoked by somebody who would appreciate her.  (Pipes
are feminine, right?)  Grp. 5. Vulcanite stem (I think).  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $225.
Brakner Antique #52784
Not a common shape for Brakner, in my experience.  It's that
bent stem, which looks uncomfortable angled at first glance, but
it works just fine when held in the hand.  The condition of the
pipe is exc., but there are tooth marks on the bottom of the
stem.  Not deep, but multiple.  Amazingly, with a few twists of a
thin pipe cleaner, it went to the bottom of the chamber.  The
stem is vulcanite and the pipe is used, if only barely.
5.5" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $125.
Vollmer & Nilsson #42537FT
Always one of my favorite brands, both because I like the two
pipe makers and because I revere the traditional English
shapes, as do V&N.  This pipe exhibits very hard, tight straight
grain through the blast.  The draw is wide-open, the stem is
vulcanite & it's a Grp. 4 size.  with original V&N sterling band.
5.2" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $350.
Søren Eric Andersen (SEA) #117187
This is something completely different and the carving
represents a tobacco leaf.  You can see this pipe on page 177
of Jan Andersson's fabulous book "Scandinavian Pipemakers."
It's full of biographies and color photographs of pipes you'll
covet.  Well, one of them is here.  It's large, a Grp. 7 in size, I'd
say, with an open draw and an inset ring in the shank.  New.
6.75" long.  Weight: 3 oz., 86 grams. $1195.
W.O. Larsen Straight Grain 7 #102101BK
Typically, a stem like this is acrylic, but I'm pretty certain that this
one is not.  The stem slit is straight across without the V and I
don't believe I've ever seen an acrylic with that construction.  
The cond. is of a pipe very slightly smoked, although there is a
tiny tooth indent on the top of the stem.  Look carefully at the
rim.  It appears that there can be a fill up there, but I looked
through a triple lens and it is simply the way the wood formed,
not that we should have to mention it because I don't think
Larsen would put a fill in any of their better pipes.  The size is
Grp. 6, with a chamber large enough to take my thumb and the
draw is open, with a cleaner going right through to the chamber
bottom.  Ignore the piece of white in the bead.  It's gone. Used.
5.75" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.75 oz., 77 grams. $295.
Jess Chonowitsch #1021178BK
I'm rather sure I have never seen a Poker by Chonowitsch.  This
is a Grp. 6 in size with fine ring grain showing in the blast &
Bird's Eye on the smooth bottom, indicating straight grain in the
bowl.  The draw is wide-open, as you would expect.  New.
5.6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. $4250
Jorgen L Grade E #803032JJ
Somewhere in this whole, wide world there must be someone
with an insatiable curiosity as to how different tobaccos taste
when smoked at the same time.  The number of permutations
and research projects are nearly endless, and this is the pipe
with which to exercise that curiosity.  By twisting the ring
between the shank and the bowl and lining up the dots, one can
smoke from the chamber on the left, the one on the right or both
at the same time.  How curious are you?
6.3" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 3.5 oz., 99 grams. $2400.
Kjeld sorensen (Red Hat) #123283JJ
This is definitely a sculpture, with a different looking pipe each
time you turn it and see it from a different perspective.  I sup-
pose you would call it a Blowfish, but that tells only a small part
of the story here.  It's not big; maybe a Grp. 4.5 in size, but
there is a lot going on, including fine Bird's Eye on one side.
5.4" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. Price: $695.
Ben Wade Reflection #527281
There is a tooth indentation on the bottom of the stem (which
you can see in the photo on bottom right) .  Other than that, the
condition is excellent.  The draw is not great, but I might be able
improve that a bit with sanding tape.  It's a Grp. 6 in size with
both a wide diameter chamber and a deep one. Used.
5.75" long, bowl 2.5" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 60 grams. $50.
S. Bang #1224039RB
Elegant is the word that comes to mind when I look at this shape
from Bang.  The grain is good all around and the draw is open &
the construction is so superior that despite the "S" shape, a
cleaner glides to smack dab on the bottom of the chamber, but
it's the shape that carries the day.  (I must say, however, that
the Bird's Eye on the bottom of the bowl is sumpn special.)  
Grp. 5 size.  Exc. cond., vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $950.
Lasse Skovgaard #331307CO
A grp. 6 in size, with a wide-open draw, but really, the attraction
is the great ring-grain blast.  It's just a beautiful pipe, well
constructed and appealingly proportioned.  The flat,
comfortable stem adds to the elements that are going to make
this pipe, for someone, a very valued part of the rotation.  It's
got "favorite" written all over it.  That's my take, anyway.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams. $450.
Kjeld Sorensen (Red Hat)  #123255JJ
Kjeld Sorensen, the man behind the hat, so to speak, is
developing into one of Denmark's better pipe makers.  On this
Briar Calabash he uses a natural stain to highlight the Bird's
Eye grain on the rim.  The open draw is complimented by a
draft hole right on the chamber bottom, which is uncoated. New.
6.1" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 /38 oz., 66 grams. $875.
Kjeld Sorensen (Red Hat) #213270JJ
With a wide open draw, and a draft hole right where it should
be this cross-grained melding of a Cutty, a Dublin and an Egg
is a beauty to hold.  it's always good to see that cross grain
going up and down the spine of the pipe (the top and bottom of
the shank).  For a Group 4.5 in size it's light weight.  New pipe.
5.1" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. Price: $450.
Nording Grade 11 #331145PJ
Tall, well graded handmade pipe by Nording with the kind of
cross grain that entitled it to its superior grading.  A flalt acrylic
stem & open draw.  Barely smoked; exc. cond. Grp. 6.   Used.
5.35" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $85.
S. Bang by Ulf Noltensmeier #331285CO
The grain on this pipe is exceptional.  I"m going to guess that
Ulf sacrificed some refined shaping possibilities to save as
much of that straight grain as possible, and he did the job as
planned.  Leaving that bit of plateau on the rim lets you know
that he used the best part of the burl.  The size is a Grp. 6, the
draw is wide open, the construction is exceptional, with the air
hole flat on the bottom of the chamber & a cleaner goes right
through.  The cond. is like-new...barely smoked.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 75 grams. Price: $1495.
S. Bang Pipe 15148 #121182
Pedigree makes a difference.  Photographs, certainly my
photographs, do not come close to doing this pipe justice.  It is
a Grp. 3 in size, and is an exceptional little piece, in terms of
grain (note the Bird's Eye on the bottom of the shank & bowl
and the straight grain on the sides of the shank), construction,
stem work, stain, wax, and hand feel.  Ebonite stem.  New.
4.9" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $3265.
S, Bang by Per Hansen #331313CO (SOLD 4/22/17)
Based on the nomenclature, I think this pipe was made in 2013
& was possibly the first pipe Per made that year.  Regardless, it
is beautiful in every way.  My photos don't do it any justice.  The
draw is wide-open & the size is about a large Grp. 5.  It's just
loaded with Bird's Eye & cross grain; there's a lot to sit & gaze
at.  The hand-cut stem is vulcanite.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams. $2795.
Lasse Skovgaard #331277CO
The pipe exhibits a goos sized "S" bend, but a cleaner, with just
a bit of coaxing, right through to the bottom of the chamber.
The draw is open& the flat stem gives comfort to the teeth &
jaw.  With all the briar in the bowl, the pipe is heavy, but very
nicely balanced.  The quality of the grain you can see for
yourself. Vulcanite stem.  Unsmoked
5.3" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight:  2.5 oz., 70 grams. $900.
Vollmer & Nilsson #122475  
I think of this as a preview of what will soon come, the Human
Tragedy Series, a collaboration between Vollmer & Nilsson (the
talent) and Pulversbriar (the promulgator of evil intent).  This
series will celebrate that most profound of thinkers, Erasmus,
and his opus, "In Praise of Human Folly."  Having read the book
over 40 years ago, I have no recollection of its content, but it
sounds good.  This is an Apple and we will lead off with The
Fall, symbolizing man's initial, and continual, fall from Grace.  
But believe us (V&N, and I) this hardly represents the scope of
human folly.  Oh yes, this pipe; I almost forgot.  It's simply a
beaut.  Why?  Beautiful, open, hygroscipic cross grain.  
Beautiful shaping.  Beautiful construction work.  Beautiful care
about your smoking pleasure, hence no bowl coating.  Beautiful.
5.95" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 1/4 oz., 36 grams. $475.
Kurt Balleby #42553FT
Very typical of Kurt's earlier pipes; I've got one just like it.  This
is short, with a Grp. 4 sized chamber capacity, a wide-open
draw and a very comfortable, handsome brindle stem.  The
cond. is exc., to a degree that leads me to believe it was recon-
ditioned.  The trim that circumscribes the stem is interesting.
4.85" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $440.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #331329CO (SOLD 4/25/17)
I don't think there can be a lot of better straight grains that
came from the S. Bang work benches.  This is easily a Grp. 5 in
size with a wide-open draw, a cleaner that goes to the very
bottom of the tobacco chamber and a hand-cut vulcanite stem.
Bird's Eye covers the entire bottom of the sculpted briar.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams.  $2800
Erik Nording Churchwarden 1224372
I didn't feel I could get a decent shot of the entire pipe.  Suffice
to say that it is 10.5" long.  The draw is open, so despite the
length, you should get a nice smoke from this clean looking
briar that doesn't need dark stain in order to cover up flaws.
The stem is vulcanite and the pipe is new.  
10.5" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $65.
S. Bang Pipe 15127 #122495
Easily a Grp. 6 in size, but with walls so thick that the chamber
size is not that large.  Still, it is hard to argue with the thick walls
when the rim exhibits such marvelous Bird's Eye grain.  The
straight grain all around is not bad, either.  Of course the con-
struction is great, so the draw is open.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
5.7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 73 grams. $3465
W.O. Larsen 8 #924153
Large, as in Grp. 6 or a bit bigger.  The cond. is very good, with
the merest touch of wear on the inner rim of the chamber.  The
draw is open and the stem is vulcanite.  There is a hint of tooth
chatter on the bottom of the stem.  Across the top of the shank
is stamped "straight grain."  Which Dane made it?  Don't know.
5.8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/4 oz., 77 grams. $325
Kurt Balleby Grade 4 #117138 (SOLD 4/10/17)
Recognized now as one of the best pipe makers in the world, I
am lucky enough to have recognized his skill early on and thus
still get some pipes from Kurt, and at very favorable prices.  this
was acquired at the West Coast Pipe Show in Nov.  This is a
Grp. 5 size that feels oh so good in the hand.  The draw is
open and it takes a cleaner right to the chamber.  New.
5.15" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $885
Jess Chonowitsch #218173BK
A fine exhibition of ring grain.  The draw is wide-open and the
stem is hand-cut vulcanite.  The size of the pipe is equal to a
Dunhill Group 6, and the inner diameter of the tobacco
chamber is just shy of 9/10."  Unsmoked.
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight:  2 oz., 58 grams. $4500.
Svend Bang A by U.N. #924067
Certainly at least a Grp. 6 in size, with a wide-open draw and a
draw hole on the bottom of the chamber.  And, with a bit of a
twist, the cleaner goes all the way through to that chamber.  
The stem is vulcanite and the pipe is unsmoked .  
5.6" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 69 grams. $2750.
Jorn Larsen #102142BK
A simple, classic, always comfortable shape from one of the top
Danish makers at a very reasonable price.  Better yet, the draw
is wide-open and a pipe cleaner passes easily through to the
chamber bottom.  It's a Gpr. 5 in size & the stem is vulcanite.  
The band is not hallmarked or stamped, but it has the patina of
sterling and I can hardly imagine Jorn would use a lesser
material for one of his pipes.  Unsmoked.
5.8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $425.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #331292CO
A Group 5 in size, with the kind of winning blast most U.S. pipe
collectors prefer, deep, somewhat sharp and ring grained.  The
draw and construction are as you would expect from a Bang &
a cleaner goes right to the chamber.  I don't know the inspiration
for the stain color they use on blasts, when they're not using
black, but I like it.  The hand cut stem is flat & comfortable. New.
5.3" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $1950.
Larsen Straight Grain 2 from early days #218229BK
The photo of the right side of the bowl, on the bottom, is off.  I
don't know what I did, but I apologize. The color, etc. is correctly
represented by the top photo.  I say "early days" on top
because this pipe was also stamped "Copenhagen" as well as
"Made in Denmark."  It's Group 6 or 7 size.  The shank exten-
sion is bone.  The stem is vulcanite.  The pipe is unsmoked.
7" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 3 3/8 oz., 94 grams. $375.
Former # 21899EG
First, the disclosure.  I rushed to photograph this pipe so I
could get it on the page with the other Formers that came in.
The pipe is in exc. cond., but I need to polish and buff the stem
so that it shines like new.  Easily done, but not in time for this
picture.  My apology.  Fine cross grain & Bird's Eye in a large
(Grp. 6 size) pipe.  Talking about that stem, BTW, it is vulcanite,
flat and narrow.  In other words, very comfortable.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $850.
Former #218104EG
It's uncommon to see an acrylic stem on a top end Danish pipe,
but in this case, we have one.  The pipe is a Grp.4 size, in
excellent condition with a reddish & black stain that dramatically
sets off the complex set of grain patterns that adorn the bowl.
.5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $850.
Former #218109EG
One of the many mysteries of pipe making, at least to me, is
how does a pipe maker, with as varied a skill set as Former,
decide what shape he's going to produce from a block of briar.
Former can make any shape he wants, and have it be one of
the best examples of that shape ever.  So, here, he chose to
make a version of the Danish Free Hand.  Why?  Because he
wanted to use as much of this fabulous briar block as possible?
Look at the grain...it is Grp. 6 or even a 7 and the ring grain
runs all around the bowl from top to bottom.  And in this way, he
managed also to keep the plateau, telling the customer that this
pipe came from the best part of the burl.  The cond. is exc., the
draw is wide-open and the stem is acrylic.  It won't oxidize. Used.
6" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $895.
Nording 16 #218193BK
The "16" is a very high grade for Nording and this pipe
deserves that stature, with straight grain running all around the
bowl, accentuating the volcano shape beautifully.  The draw is
open and the cond. is exc., No marks on the vulcanite stem.
The size is a Group 5.  Used, but barely.  
5.9" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $260.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #218206BK
This pipe was smoked, I'm guessing, but is in near-new
condition.  It's a Grp. 5 in size and to me, it's a signature shape
of S. Bang, or maybe just Per.  Besides his initials, it is also
stamped with an "A" and the band has a sterling hallmark. The
draw is wide-open & the hand-cut stem is vulcanite.  Used.
5.15" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $1995.
Poul Ilsted #218247BK (SOLD 4/7/17)
Here is that wonderful rare bird, an unsmoked Ilsted.  It is a Grp.
6 in size, and the draw is open.  The straight grain pattern goes
all around the bowl with the rim and bowl bottom exhibiting lots
of Bird's Eye.  The stem is vulcanite.  Unsmoked.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $1650
Champ of Denmark #331188 (SOLD 4/22/17)
At the price with which I plan on presenting this pipe, I would be
better advised to put it on the Specials page, but here we are
so let it stay as is.  It's a Grp. 5 Freehand with a lot of good
straight and flame grain, a replacement stem (I am fairly sure) &
with a tiny crimp of a cleaner tip, it goes right through to the
chamber bottom.  The chamber diameter, BTW, is wide enough
to take my thumb, so it is probably about 21mm in diameter.  It
was liked well enough to have been well smoked, but the cond.
appears to be excellent.  Stem is vulcanite.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $35.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #218279BK
If the purpose of this shape is to take advantage of great cross
grain and Bird's Eye, Per has done it here.  The sides of the
pipe, including the shank, make a great display for the cross
grain while the bottom and front of the bowl provide fascination
for the Bird's Eye lover (which includes me).  It's not a large
pipe, probably a Group 4 tobacco chamber & it defies the
standard problem of this shape by being comfortable in the
hand and in the mouth.  The draw is wide-open and the
condition is excellent, it having been barely smoked.  Used.
5.4" long.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $1850.
Refbjerg #33158SB
Medium-large..perhaps a Grp. 6 in size.  Wide-open draw and
takes a thin pipe cleaner through to the chamber with a bit of a
twist.  The grain is good all around the bowl and the plateau top
assures you that the pipe was cut from the best part of the burl.
Because I"m selling it for a pipe widow, it is seriously under-
priced.  Comfortable vulcanite stem...narrow & flat. Unsmoked.
5.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. $195.
W.Ø. Larsen "Cognac" #33177
One of the last iterations of the Larsen brand, I think.  In exc.
cond. with a wide-open drawGrp. 5 in size.  Acrylic stem. Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $75.
Jorgen L S Grade #331128
Here's a chance to get one of the top Danish pipe makers at a
super low price.  Jorgen might have been the first high grade
Danish pipe maker to take his pipes on the road and do trunk
shows in shops in Germany.  This one is in exc. cond., with just
a little carbon at one spot on the rim.  The draw is wide-open &
the construction is so good a cleaner goes right to the chamber.
5.55" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $125.
Emil Chonowitsch #42522FT
Emil, as many of you undoubtedly know, is Jess's father & was
considered a very good pipe maker, although it became quickly
apparent that his son would surpass him.  This Grp. 6 sized
Billiard has very good cross grain and only a very little wear on
the rim to keep it from being in exc. cond.  My thumb fits into
the chamber and the draw is open.  The stem is vulcanite.
5.7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams.  Used. $325.
Emil Chonowitsch # 42532FT
