    PipeDan Straight Grain

    It was a busy ebay weekend. A seller had some rare old (early 1960's) PipeDan pipes. I bought three of the four I bid on. Here is the first one. Without yet having the pipe in hand, I would guess it was made by Sven Knudsen, or Gert Holbek, or on an outside chance an early pipe by Preben Holm. Going by the shaping and stem's shape, I think Sven Knudsen is the most likely maker.

    Pipe is date marked to 1964. Not a Holbek marked pipe, I'd say almost definitely Sven Knudsen.

    I've been carefully working on this pipe for the last few days. The heavily caked chamber, because of it's narrow dimension, was difficult to get cleaned out, but I persisted with a narrow knife blade, and a couple of different grits of paper. I was going to give it a test smoke...but I chickened out. I'll get to it, I just have to be in the right frame of mind, as in, If something goes wrong, I just have to accept it... Sometimes with these older Danish pipes, you never know until the deed is done, trust me.
