Found a Karl Eric grade a pipe for $25 in the antique shop. No stem, but that's easy to deal with. Hardly smoked by the look of it.keep hunting!

wow, it does look really nice! I like the contrast between the huge bowl and thin shank. Quite pretty :clap: good find!

Lucky find, as you know any of us would have walked away with it, had we got there first.
Super rustic looking, congratulations!

Very nice, I hope you get a stem fixed up, and get it smoking! For the price it's hard to beat. Gotta love people who see "old pipe" and automatically price it at 10-$30. (unless it's a medico with a hole in the stem and chunk out of the side) Congrats!

Pipe came back. She's all stemmed up, and about to give her a smoke. Thought I'd share the new stem, since I love my danish pipes.

Agree, very good. Who did the work on the stem? Was any other work needed?
Norwood's Pipe Repair did the stem. I go through my local tobacconist, but that's who they use, they have a fast turnaround and excellent work. I've had 4 or 5 pipes go through them now.
No other work was needed, I think they original was smoked one time ever, clean as a whistle and no ghosting apparent.
