    Broken Pipe - Lars Ivarsson

    I've just read on another forum, that Lars Ivarsson has passed away.

    Very, very sad news indeed and a great loss to the world of pipe-making.
    I remember his Q&A column in the Danish pipe magazine 'Piben' (1971-1972); he had a wondeful, wry sense of humour and his knowledge of pipes and talent for making them was enormous.

    My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

    Yes, I read this also earlier today. I've watched this before,

    Sykes Wilford of Smokingpipes.com interviews Lars Ivarsson in August, 2011 at his home near Nykobing Sjaelland, Denmark.

    Great video and I watched it some time ago and shall watch it again.

    The sad news was confirmed by Sykes Wilford; Nanna Ivarsson had called him up and told him last night, (Danish time).

    May he rest in peace. Sykes wrote a nice valedictory at Pipes Magazine.
