Champ of Denmark was a brand of the currently closed Larsen & Stigart tobacconist in Copenhagen, Denmark (along with “Larsen & Stigart”, “Shelburne”). As many advanced tobacco shops at that time had also an indoor production and employed such famous carvers as Søren Eric Andersen and Karl Erik Ottendahl who was the author of the majority of Champs, there is a great analysis on the rebornpipes blog.
Also we’d like to draw your attention that the shape of this pipe and the stem shape are very similar to many amazing Jobey Danks creatures, so we’re sure that our today’s pipe is the creation of Karl Erik as well.
