This great Ben Wade I got my friend from LI, Chet Gottfried
This pipe is a wonderful example of Danish freehands, it is a
"sitter", too! Very preferable for a huge pipe like this.
The plateau top of Ben Wade
My biggest pipe, a Danish Bjarne. It is a mas-
sively beautiful pipe and an extraordinary
piece of briar. I must get more like this one!
3 inches high and almost two inches wide
Some Preben Holm/Ben Wade -pipes:
The late Danish Preben Holm designed
gorgeous "freehands", later produced
under the name Ben Wade. This is one
of my own Preben Holms. It is so big,
I have not yet filled the bowl full!
2,5" high and 1,75" wide
Look at 'The Story of my Firm' by the late P.H. himself
A beautiful Ben Wade with a spiral shaft
owned by my friend Chet Gottfried in LI, U.S.A.
A combination of Kalevala, imagination
