With 60 years experience it is ok to call a pipe a master piece, when you really think everything went the right way. This Elephants Foot shape from Hans Former Nielsen is an example on that.
Tons of birds eyes, great cross grain, a beautiful piece of horn as extension and to top it all a silver reinforcement in the horn. The handmade saddle stem is made in black ebonite. A bonus information is that it is extremely rare one see an Elephants Foot from Hans Former Nielsen.
