A wonderful freehand pipe made by the legendary Danish artisan Preben Holm in 1970s. Initially Ben Wade was an old good English family manufactory. Soon after the WWII the brand was acquired by Lane Ltd from USA, the producer of fantastic Charatan’s pipes at that time. The new Ben Wade era (“Danish Ben Wade”) started in 1970s, when Hermann Lane and Preben Holm initiated series of amazing and sophisticated hand made freehand pipes.
The pipe markings are “Ben Wade \ DANISH \ HAND MODEL \ 200 \ MADE IN DENMARK”. The length is 14.4 cm (5.67″), bowl’s height is 4.5 cm (1.77″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.5 cm (1.77″), internal diameter is 2.3 cm (0.91″). The depth is 3.0 cm (1.18″) and this pipe weights 63 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has been protected with a break-in coat. The bowl had a small indentation on the left side, it was corrected but the trace can be visible under a good light. We recommend to bend an end of a pipe cleaner slightly (like on our picture) for the better access to the air hole.
