Having carved pipes for W.O Larsen for over twenty years, it's no surprise that Benni Jorgensen is a big fan of the Danish shapes. Benni has quite a dexterity with classic Danish forms and they constitute the majority of his production. This elegant bent Egg is a wonderful example of the slight alterations on archetypal Danish designs for which Benni is famous. The hiked up bowl and the flank seams are both Benni trademarks. This pipe boasts a very nice sandblast and is embellished with an ivory accent. At less than $300, this piece is also an incredible deal.
