Here you not only get two Poul Ilsted pipes, but you also get a fine story. Two Danish pipe smokers were friends. One took really good care of his pipes and the other not so much. Nevertheless the second guy got an original Poul Ilsted pipe in present from his wife. He loved it, smoked it, banged it out and in general he did not take very much care of it (but he loved to smoke on it). The first friend where jealous on the friends pipe present and naturally sad about hopw he treated the pipe. So one day he borrowed it and went to Poul Ilsted and asked if he could make another one similar. Poul was not happy about the look of the pipe, but he knew the first friend would take care of a new one so he made one as similar as it could be but a notch finer.

So here you get the “original” and the “copy” both made by Poul Ilsted. The original has been repaired a lot. There was a hole in it so we have inserted a plug plus made a new stem. It has scratches, a crack and in general it's very used, but after the restoration its actually alive again.

 

The “copy” is amazing and a fine example on why Poul Ilsted is considered to be in the top 5-10 all time pipemakers. The ring is made of sperm whale tooth. Danish pipe maker Tom Eltang has done all the work with the two pipes. The "copy" is only cleaned and polished. Measurements are on the copy and you shall consider the original as an extra and more as a part of the story than your dream Ilsted pipe. The "copy" is rated fopur and the original is rated two.
