So I just pull the trigger on a nice Bjarne handmade and can't wait to receive it! I am now wondering if there is any way to know which carver made it?

A very nice piece of wood, graded very high ("B"), so one of the 'Ace' carvers made it for sure. Bjarne never denoted the carver of the pipes -- only that Tonni Nielson did many of the high grades and Johs did the low grade pipes. But, the wood and the grade and the workmanship clearly speak to the fact that a master carver did the work. I think that's as much as you can know.

That's a really nice pipe!!!

Ph. Vigen also did Bjarne's high grades and worked exclusively for Bjarne. I don't know if yours is a Vigen though.
