Freehand pipes are excellent and original designs, especially the ones that are made by Nording. The company has been praised for decades for its high quality and outstanding looking smoking pipes.
Nording's Grain series takes the freehand designs and highlights the titular grain of the briar as an extra accentuation piece, something that you don't usually find with freehand pipes, where the shape typically takes the front billing in terms of appearance.
There are three groups in the Nording Grain series: Black, Brown, and Virgin. Each coloring offers something different, with great looks from all options. This is where the freehand shape helps separate this series from the pack. The twists, pits, and unique shapes add to the look of the grain in a way that you will not find in a traditional smoking pipe.
The Black Grain takes the natural look of the wood and adds a stain to highlight the streaks and swirls of the wood. Despite the name, the Black Grain is not the darkest pipe. It is actually a decent medium, with the black stain and the natural brown combining to give a shadow-like appearance to the grain.
The Brown is the darkest looking stain for this series. The extra dark stain adds to a mystique that the freestyle shape provides. Nording has something that will be a unique addition to any collection, and the dark brown stain will be great for that.
Finally, the Virgin Grain is a line that utilizes the best briar Nording has. The light stain helps highlight that quality. With the grain's flow appearance, the lighter color makes it look like you are staring into a bright sunrise.
Making the Grain series truly highlights the creativity and innovation that Nording smoking pipes provide with every piece they create. Collect your new smoking pipe today.
