    I am a poker fanatic and have gone to his site many times. But you can't buy one of the bloody things unless you go to The Danish Pipe Shop. Frustrating.

    I don't care for bamboo too often on a pipe. It usually looks like an afterthought and alien. However on those two it looks perfectly natural and organic.

    I really like the second one. Looks warm.

    I don't have any of these models just yet/just expressing PAD/in-my-sights
    pipes I will try to acquire he does offer pipes outside the waiting
    list from time to time (just check his for-sale section on website), and I know
    the waiting list is pretty long, but IMHO/his creations are well worth the wait
