Did you know that Erik Nording started making artisan tobacco pipes out of necessity?
Well it’s true!
A trained engineer, he was better at working from sketches of custom pipes then from the “traditional knowledge” of the classic shapes, so his first successes as a pipe maker were making custom pieces for customers of local tobacconists.
From Nording and Winslow to the Ivarsson family, the history of Scandinavian pipe making is a fascinating one. Join Jan Andersson as he takes you, maker by maker, through a visually stunning history of many of the most notable makers in the tobacco pipe world.
