Nording Smooth Canadian Estate Briar Pipe, Danish Estates [SOLD]

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.

First off: no, your eyes don’t deceive you, and the included photos are correct. This is a Nording alright. But it’s not the style that first comes to mind when thinking of Nording pipes. Instead, it is a very traditional – albeit on the longer side – Canadian shape in the English-French mold. And it’s a really nice one at that, one carved to emphasize swirling cross-grain around its bowl, and a brilliant mass of bird’s-eye patterns on its shank and underside. This looks to be an older Nording, judging by the ebonite stem. 1970s/80s, perhaps?

The condition is very good. There is some finish fading on the rim and a slight unrounding of the top of the chamber, but these are cosmetic in nature.
