This is perhaps the largest freehand pipe we have offered over the last years. The pipe was made by 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 \ GOLDEN WALNUT \ HAND MADE \ IN \ DENMARK”. The length is 18.5 cm (7.28″), bowl’s height is 7.2 cm (2.83″). External dimensions of the bowl are 4.9 x 5.8 cm (1.93 x 2.28″), internal diameter is 2.4 cm (0.94″). The depth is 3.7 cm (1.46″) and this pipe weights 76 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has normal smoked wear not excluding some roughness but without any major issues.
