    The pipe arrived. The condition is as good as the eBay photos. It is clean and has been reamed back to just above the wood. I am now smoking it with MacBaren‘s Three Nuns, about which more in the What is in your pipe thread.

    This pipe was either hardly smoked at all, or was smoked very, very carefully. The stem is in almost as new condition, so good that I suspect a very recent replacement. That would also fit the fact that the slot is very, very slightly skewed. But the stem is so good that I am quite happy with it.

    The pipe is indeed extremely light and well made. I may be starting to understand what Piffyr meant about the rustication. It either gives the illusion of gobs go angle hair straight grain or the pipe had gobs of angle hair that were revealed by the rustication.

    It smokes well and tastes fine. I still prefer the rustication on a Sasieni or the blast on an old Dunhill, but it is definitely a good and interesting pipe.

    What a fine pipe, Mark! May it give you many years of pleasant smoking.

    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.

    Only just seen this thread Mark,although i dont have any Danish pipes I will happily share the blame with the other fine gentlemen.
    I have stopped buying for now(at least that is what I say until something pops up and attracts me)
