Fantastic Calabash shape made by Danish pipe maker Tom Eltang. It has amazing sandblasting and removable top. The smooth top is stained in the famous "golden contrast" stain that Tom does not make anymore. The chamber makes the smoke cool and dry. The pipe is checked by Tom Eltang himself naturally. Note the pipe is marked with the snail to let you know that this a top grade from Tom. Tom estimates that a new one would probably cost around the double compared to this one. The calabash takes a long time to make so a "snail" marked Calabash will always cost more than a "normal" snail marked pipe from Tom Eltang.
