Jobey is the brand with perhaps the most tangled history. Since establishing in the 1920s the company has changed a whole row of owners, distributors and manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic. Frequently experts can’t reach an agreement regarding a specific Jobey pipe, its origin and dating. But the Jobey Dansk series is definitely pure 1970s as pipedia says. These fancy freehands were made by Danish genius Karl Erik Ottendahl for Webber, owner of Jobey at that time.

The pipe was accurately smoked, it has been thoroughly cleaned, polished, sanitized and now is ready for a new life. To pass through the air channel you may need to slightly bend the end of the pipe cleaner as in the last picture. The air hole is a bit higher than the chamber’s bottom, that’s a frequent situation on bent pipes, moreover – on such fancy shapes.
