    Pretty excited to share with everyone my new additions...

    First I received a Peder Jeppesen High Grade 7 pipe. Peder has been in the pipe business for a long time previously working for Nording. He now makes pipes under his old family name "Neerup" as well as handmades under his IDA and High Grade line. The High Grade line earns a rating from 6-12. I couldn't resist picking up this piece for under $200. I actually emailed Peder to see if he could tell me a little bit more about the pipe and he was kind enough to respond. How fascinating to find out some of the details.

    Hello Jordan.

    I am very pleased for add a pipe for your colecktion. I wonder where you have ordered this piece?
    The wood on the shank is named Pockenholz, and the wood ring on the mouth piece is named Cocobolo (Brazil)
    The bryere wood is from Sicily, and the shapes is one of my typical shapes.
    All the best with your new pipe.

    Best friendly regards.
    Peder.

    Along with that I received quite the Esoterica shipment. Stonehaven, Penzance, Dunbar, Dorchester, and Tilbury. I do not chase this line from a collector/resale standpoint, I genuinely love to smoke all of these and was delighted to get my hands on a good amount. Also some Germain Medium and Brown Flake and Reiner Long Golden Flake.

    I have the day off today and plan on heading to the local B&M for some quality smoking time!

    Yowza! What a haul. And what a beautiful pipe. That bird's eye field on the bottom is magnificent. Congrats and enjoy.

    The pipe eases you into the present moment - savor your pipe & you'll savor this moment.

    That is a stunning pipe! Although I've never smoked any Esoterica blends, that is a rather impressive delivery there! Enjoy your day off.

    Don't smoke it all in one day!

    Where did the pipe come from? Any idea how old it is?

    What I really like about this pipe (aside from the bowl shape and thick walls) is the transition piece. In both color and form, it unifies the stem and the pipe beautifully. I'm not a fan of the "straw stuck in a lemon" or "nail in a fencepost" look that some older Danish freehands have.

    This pipe is a pleasure.

    Came from a seller I follow. I've picked up a Winslow 300 and a Savinelli 1999 Collection from them for a reasonable price as well. If I catch a pipe I like that seems fairly priced I go for it.

    As far as the year I sent a follow up email to Peder to see if he could tell me that information. Still awaiting a response.

    That is a great looking pipe, and you got it at a great price! Peder Jeppesen is one of my favorite pipe makers, the curves and flow of his pipes are second to none. The pipe gods have smiled upon you this day good sir!

    Wow. I don't chase down Esoterica blends but a member here sent me samples of Tilbury and Dunbar and I must say, both are phenomenal Virginia blends! I hope you enjoy!

    Jordan,

    Congrats sir! I enjoyed your prior review and looking forward to future reviews (looks like you have plenty of raw material!) and perhaps some comparisons of Dunbar/Dorchester. Hope you enjoy some fine smokes today!

    Congrats on your haul, and on a lovely note from a carver. Those little touches are what add provenance and feeling to a pipe purchase.

    Nicely done.

    What a great scene that is...that pipe is a beaut!
    I recently saw a Neerup that I must admit, threw me into lust....I am going to have to look at more of his offerings.

    Jordan,

    That is a great looking pipe and the fact that you got a brief history lesson from the carver is fantastic.

    I think I will be in South Dakota after the New Year. I will give you a hand with some of that leaf.
