I just so happened to smoke mine this morning. That shape was really popular but, like so many of Stanwell's shapes, that 144 shape was discontinued when the carver responsible for it moved on to greener pastures (in this case Jess Chonowitsch).

Well, super easy, as it turns out.
This one was stamped Danish Sovereign 144 by Stanwell.
There doesn't seem to be a lot of consensus regarding the Stanwell 144. Standard shape, or not? Desigened by Sixten Ivarsson or a number given to one-offs?
I like this one.
Good job UB.
Any thoughts or experience with the 144 you can share?
It smokes great, BTW.
Another favorite of mine is the shape 10 carved by Sixten Ivarsson:
Both shapes are highly coveted.
