When this gorgeous pipe was made, I was a 20 year old kid and owned a whopping 2 pipes, never could have purchased such a beauty :)
It is a particularly balanced, “big” and harmonious pipe, wonderfully crafted, great grain.
And btw. this is one of the few sellers who take the time to make really good photographs of their pipes, so you can actually SEE something in the listing and get a feel for this great pipe!
Check it out on our Ben Wade Estate Pipe Listing page (there are more in case this one is gone already!)
