The Danish pipe brand “Bjarne” is one of those long gone ones that is still fondly remembered - and they are quite popular Estate pipes now.
Back in the 80s and 90s we sold a lot Bjarne pipes, and we had a lot of respect for the man behind the brand, the late Bjarne Nielsen, a very hard working business man that managed to create a rather comprehensive pipe business. But what few people know is that Bjarne never made any pipes - but he had ideas and people skills!
The Bjarne pipes were in fact made by a number of great Danish pipe makers, and the primary supplier was Mogens Johansen, or Johs. After Bjarne passed away in 2008 it was natural for Johs to continue his production in his own name, and we’re happy to now be able to support yet another historic maker.
All pipes from Johs are handmade and unique - and he makes both non-filter and 9mm filter versions.
