    From what I have gathered, they are an offshoot from Preben Holmes. As far as that, I know nothing. Can someone clue me in more on them?

    The Monte Verdi line was indeed a pipe style offered by Holm. It usually features heavily blasted and rusticated briar and smaller group sizes than some of his other lines. Some refer to this line as a "second", but it provided an outlet for briar that had flaws and therefore unsuitable his other lines. Holm marketed many different lines featuring a variety of finishes in both stains and carvings and this is merely one of those. The ones I own are good pipes and smoke well. The blast finish is very interesting to look at and the tactile sensations make it fun to hold.

    I saw one for sale on eBay, thought about putting a bid on it. Looked fancy.
