Description:Impressive, elegant and still well constructed pipe design from Kurt. This is a half bent balloon shape with paneled shank and awesome grain. Fine brown stain and a wonderful short saddle stem made in black ebonite. This is of his highest grade. He calls them "number" pipes and it is number 31 in 2016 hence the mark 31 16.Written by Nikolaj/TDPSSpecifications Length: 13,40 cm. Weight: 66 grams Bowl height: 5,3 cm.

He is one of the most asked for Danish high grade pipemakers and therefore it is hard to get his pipes. Craftmanship on this level takes time and with that you have a limited production. We are so proud to have his pipes at The Danish Pipe Shop and a little detail is that this is the first time he is ever represented in a real Danish pipe shop.
