We have a new pipemaker in the house! A young pipemaker with deep ancestors in Danish pipemaking history. Suhr Pipes, which is third generation of the famous Suhr Pibemageri (Suhr’s Pipe Workshop). Suhr Pibemageri made a huge impact on Danish pipe design which began in the 1950s, and the main reason was a man called Poul Rasmussen.
Unfortunately, Poul Rasmussen died unexpectedly and suddenly, and left his wife, Anne Julie, and their little son, Thomas, behind along with his workshop. Anne Julie took over the workshop, which made her the world famous pipemaker she is today. Thomas grew up and had sons of his own – and one of them is Johannes, who is in his 20s today.
For the past 3-4 years, Johannes has followed the work of Anne Julie around the world, and furthermore he has worked at Tom Eltang’s workshop to learn everything he can. Johannes is determent to become a skilled pipemaker and he has a very ambitious goal: To revive the name and style of the famous Suhr Pipes. For inspiration, he is lucky to have access to a huge selection of Suhr Pibemageri pipes owned by Anne Julie – and, not least, he has gained permission from Grandma Anne Julie to use her mark, but in a black and white edition.
We gladly follow Johannes closely. He is a charismatic, ambitious, funny and talented young man, and with his bloodline and journey in mind, we predict he will be very successful.
