    MYHRE KRISTIANIA MADE IN ENGLAND

    Just a neat old shape. Not sure who made it, but reminds me of an old Comoy's shape. It just arrived, very well packaged in a zip lock bag, inside a padded envelope, inside a padded envelope, inside a padded envelope. I'm exhausted from just opening it!

    Very interesting pipe, Dave. Any info on the age and maker?

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    I love that shape. Kinda reminds me of an uber-zulu. I think Peterson has a model resembling that a little but this is more elegant and sleeker. This is one of my faves of yours, Dave. Great snag!!!!

    Kristiana used to be the name of Oslo and the Myrhe has roots in Norway and Austria. The pipe looks to me to have an early Danish design.

    I knew I'd seen a Comoy's version of this shape, I believe originally at Neill Roan's blog. Here is an example from the pipedia Comoy's page, a Specimen Straight Grain,

    Ah, so you were the one buying it from ebay a few days ago. For $16.99 + shipping, it's a steal.

    Indeed, it changed name from Oslo to Christiania/Kristiania in 1624 and back to Oslo in 1912.
