Ben Wade Prominence A2, Partially Sandblasted Freehand Briar Pipe, Danish Estates
Out of stock
While Ben Wade was a historic British pipe brand, for a time during the 1970s, production of Ben Wade pipes was contracted out to one of Danish pipe-making’s superstars: Preben Holm. Though he would tragically pass away at the age of 42, Holm was one of the pioneering figures in the ‘Danish design’ movement in 20th century pipe-making, a movement that still dominates the high-grade pipe scene. By hand-shaping his pipes on a belt sander, Holm was able to make the most of the patterns of grain hidden within briar, creating spectacular works of pipe art that looked just as well as they smoked. Owing to Holm’s untimely passing, his pipes are even more highly sought after than they were during his lifetime.
This particular Ben Wade, a product of Preben Holm’s workshop in Denmark, combines the Dane’s characteristic freeform shaping with a beautiful ring-grained partial sandblast around the bowl, and a vulcanite mount joining the stem to the shank. A large pipe, this Prominence model guarantees a long relaxing smoke each time its next owner picks it up. Even while it rests, this pipe is sure to attract the eyes of those that appreciate the finer arts.
