I have so few pipes, and this should be a very very easy one...

The judges say that this is enough.
It is a WO Larsen Select. Nice cross grain. Great smoker.
I figured you'd guess it when I vagued out on who made it ... there were three shops that are the core to the recent history of Danish pipe making... and W.O. Larsen's was one of them. Just about everybody intersects with that shop at one time or another.

ahh... see I wasn't certain that they had handmades, although that makes sense. I knew they had artisan "designed" pipes (ala Stanwell).
