    I just recently picked up a pipe labeled “Flemming” I’m hoping someone can help out with as there’s some confusion over whether it was carved by Flemming Petersen (Flemming Piber) or a different brand labeled Flemming. Searching online hasn’t brought up much information. The pipe is stamped Flemming (in script), Piben, Denmark. Regardless it’s a well made, nice little pipe, just really curious who made it. Thanks for any help!

    Here's a listing on Smoking Pipes Site about another pipe made with the same stamping. Pipedia doesn't say too much, only that "Flemming Petersen in Copenhagen studied under Sixten Ivarsson, and was a teacher of both Hiroyuki Tokutomi and Tom Eltang." Outside of that, not too much out there, apparently. Maybe someone else will have more info. Show us a picture while you're at it! We love pictures!

    Quite imaginative shaping on that freehand, and especially finished out with the plateau rim, perhaps bone band, and uniquely designed stem. The grain is also extra attractive. I can't tell the size, but it looks sturdy but compact and not heavy.

    Thanks everyone, it was definitely a nice find. The plateau really drew me in. Yes that’s either bone or horn, I can’t really tell which but it’s a nice accent. The stem is pretty far out, but the more I look at it the more I realize that someone put a lot of time into crafting that stem!

    While I really liked the stummel of this pipe the stem didn’t thrill me too much so I sent it off to Briarville Repair to have something a bit more conservative cut for it. I got it back a few weeks ago, and it looks great!

    I kept the original stem because someone obviously put a lot of time into shaping it, and I’ll have the original in case I ever want to trade the pipe or I began to favor the funky. Meanwhile it’s a great little pipe! Still smoking out whatever the previous owner smoked in it but after that’s gone I think it will be a fantastic little smoker.

    Very nice. I like the new stem. The stummel needed a simpler shaped stem, that would work better for me too. Turned out well!

    Yes the new stem looks much better than the old one, good choice!

    Thanks everyone, the original stem distracted from the stummel rather than complimenting it, it’s like a whole different pipe now.

    So far it’s smoking pretty good, in time I think it will smoke great.
