    W.O. Larsen 130 Super

    I'm not supposed to be buying more pipes, but you all should know how much I like Larsen pipes. This one was listed with a BIN price of $80...$80!?!? Anthony talked me into it (he didn't have to try to hard ). A nice conservative shape, the pipe looks to be in excellent condition.

    From Rob Cooper about W.O. Larsen pipes,

    The second period (Mid 1970's to the mid to late 1980's) is the most famous period, as this is the era of Teddy Knudsen, Tonni Nielsen, and Former Nielsen, along with the occasional pipe crafted by Jess Chonowitsch, Peter Hedegaard, PH Vigen, and a few others. These pipes were stamped "Larsen Hand Made in Denmark" with no "Copenhagen" stamping. The staining of the bowls were more varied than the era before. The pipes crafted during this time began to show a more refined shaping, and the use of adornment materials expanded from lighter colored horn to now a darker color...

    Looks like a great flake pipe Dave. Anthony's "pinkie push" was all that was needed.

    A steal indeed, Dave! What I find interesting is the bowl shape for a Danish pipe of the time.

    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.
