Denmark, 1970s

A product of the major Stanwell’s competitor – Danish manufactory named Kriswill after the foundator’s name – Karl Robert Kris, a former engineer for the shipping company (initially it was named Kriswell , but Stanwell believed that name was too close to theirs :-)). An impressive full bent (Oom Paul) pipe made in the 1970s for export: Kriswill Chief pipes were usually larger than other series and marketed mostly in USA.

The pipe marking is “KRISWILL \ CHIEF \ HANDMADE IN DENMARK”, “1850”. The length is 10.4 cm (4.09″), bowl’s height is 5.7 cm (2.24″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.3 cm (1.3″), internal diameter is 2.1 cm (0.83″). The depth is 4.9 cm (1.93″) and this pipe weights 48 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem (looks a little bit overbuffed near the junction with the shank), no filter.
