One of the “Danish Ben Wade” pipes created by ingenious Danish carver Preben Holm in 1970s by order of Hermann Lane, known as the owner and main ideologist of Charatan’s factory at its highest time. So was beginning the era of freehand pipes.
All Preben Holm pipes are admirable, but this Royal Grain is just a fantastic one! Incredible straight grain, the mind blowing bowl shape reminescent of a flower, flawless briar, overall great condition – that’s really a unique work of art!
The pipe marking is “Ben Wade \ ROYAL GRAIN \ HAND MADE \ IN \ DENMARK”. The length is 15.6 cm (6.14″), bowl’s height is 5.7 cm (2.24″). External dimensions of the bowl are 4.6 x 5.2 cm (1.81 x 2.05″), internal diameter is 2.3 cm (0.9″). The depth is 4.3 cm (1.69″) and this pipe weights 62 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
