anyone have any clues as to the date period of these Danish made pipes? 60's? 70's? 80's?

I heard that the new stanwells are made in England or Italy.

This is clearly danish made. Pipepedia has no info.

Reason - recently picked up an estate for $60. It smokes better than many of the $400-$500 custom made pipes i have. Damn thing smokes fantastic! Could kick myself in the old arse for wasting $ on the better pipes.

as an aside - I have at least half of the estates i have bought turn out to smoke like a dog. Despite the beauty of them. I learned too late and rightfully assume many of the estates are someone else's problems. They sold the to get some $ back even at a loss and the resellers are making the bucks.


anyway - just curious as to any info on this series of pipes and also any one else's comments on their respective pipes from this series.

Thanks.

This is my understanding of the brand as well. You'll likely find a few flaws in the briar, but the drilling in the Danish Sovereigns is usually good, in my experience. I've cleaned up a couple so far, and currently have a few more waiting for me to find time.

Good pipes at a very reasonable price, imho.
