12 Trees is a brand of pipe? How did you find out about them? I'd be interested to know about them but have never heard of them.

From this ebay listing http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-Tree-Made-in-Denmark-Egg-with-Panels-LIGHTLY-SMOKED-
I guess it is worth a $45 gamble???

It looks good at that price, and Danish pipes in general are done to high standards. I like the shaping on this egg; it has a lot of style and flow. I have a Genod egg shape that I like a lot, more understated than this, but holds quite a bit of leaf, surprisingly for its size. If you're attracted to this one, I'd go for it. And the name is catchy.

Well I got it. I thought it looked different enough for a change of pace; but not all out weird like some danish pipes. I can't how big it will will be. I know that it weighs 1.65 ounces and the chamber depth is 2" - it may be pretty large...

Sounds like a good light weight and depth, a lot of chamber in a medium size pipe. Since I cheered you on, I hope it's a winner. Looks good to me.

I have a Stanwell that has a shape very very similar to that. It is pretty much the same but mine looks a little longer. Ergonomically, that shape is a real joy to hold and smoke.

According to pipephil.eu, after following a couple of links, "Tree" pipes were put out by Oppenheimer Pipes Ltd. which you can read about at pipedia.org. Basically it was a holding company that owned a number of brands over the years including Comoy's, GBD, Dr. Plumb, Orlik, Ropp, etc.

Thanks for the info sjmiller! I always forget about that site, it didn't pop up in my search, I guess I should have started there.
I should have it on Thursday so let's hope for good weather that night!

I finally got around to posting a few pics of the 12 tree. It is in really good shape and I think I will be happy with it.





I have not smoked it yet. What does one smoke in an egg? Are danish pipes reserved for aros? What would you recommend?
