Nording Handmade Signature Freehand Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked

Out of stock


Nørding was founded by Erik Nørding in the 1960s, and is one of the oldest remaining companies to come out of the Scandinavian pipe-making renaissance that began in the mid-20th century. Now in his 80s, Erik Nørding is one of the most experienced and skilled pipe-makers in the world, and over the decades he has also been a teacher of other Danish masters, such as Poul Ilsted, Svend Axel Celius, Jens Tao Nielsen, Peder Jeppesen, and Søren Erik Andersen.

From what I understand, the Signature series of Nording freehands came about from Erik Nording’s tours of tobacconists, where he would carve freehand pipes for onlookers and then sign them before giving them to a lucky recipient (something Poul Winslow also used to do). The pipes were such a hit that Nording decided to offer them to buyers who were not able to attend Erik’s masterful performances in person. Just like those given out during Erik’s tours, these Signature freehands are left with a very light, natural, almost naked stain.

This Nording is also unsmoked, with an original bowl coating.
