Bari Wiking Handmade Partially Sandblasted Bent Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Bari was a pipe company founded in Kolding, Denmark, in 1950. Along with Stanwell, Bari was one of the first companies that started the Danish movement in pipe-making, offering innovative designs and propelling its founders and carvers into celebrity status within the pipe world. Bari’s founder was Viggo Nielsen, whose sons Kai Nielsen and Jørgen Nielsen joined him in working at Bari, along with other soon-to-be famous names such as Åge Bogelund. Though the Bari company is long gone, its legacy lives on in the artisan pipe scene as it exists today.

Many of the Danish pipe-makers in the 20th century had what we might call ‘signature’ shapes. Stanwell’s are the most recognizable today, but this one is an iconic Bari design. I can’t say for sure, but I have a hunch it was created originally by Age Bogelund, as there is much in common with it and Bogelund’s solo work. Anyway, it’s a quarter bent, rather than the traditionally full bent, bulldog, with a distinctly long shank and saddle stem. It has the classic bulldog bead-line, but this line is slightly askew, and divides the pipe’s finish between smooth and sandblasted.

Quite remarkably, this Bari is completely unsmoked, with its workshop-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes.
