Pre-introduction of the Danish pipe maker, Bjorn Thurmann

Sometime early next year (2003) yet another of the “Old Boy’s” among the Danish pipe makers will be part of this (still growing) website.
You can look forward to meet Bjorn Thurmann, his great humor and his fine (and reasonable priced) pipes.
When Bjorn can’t be found in his nice workshop in Copenhagen he will probably be attending his other great devotion – fishing.

Bjorn has just realized one of his old ideas:
“The worlds first Angler hand carved pipe”.

It’s a beautiful straight model with bamboo shank – but not just any bamboo, Bjorn is using genuine handmade “Split Cane” (what else for an Angler pipe), decorated with genuine jungle cock feathers.

Have a look at his pipes below accomplished with his own words:


Follow Izaak Walton’s footsteps !
“To be or not to be, that is the question”, but to be an angler and a pipe smoker, are the perfect combination to relax and “disappear” from the daily stress.

You now have the chance to be one of the few - among many pipe smokers, to obtain a numbered pipe of The Angler pipe with your own name on the certificate.
The production are very limit, therefore I take the liberty to put you into special order, for the last amount of the pipes.

There are many operations in pipe making, which can only be done by hand. Therefore the skill and degree and hand craftsmanship is of great importance.
The first Hand carved Angler pipe is shaped in accordance with the grain of the briar – between bowl and stem, the shank is mounted with real split cane, which give the angler a proudly design to reflect his personality, furthermore is the split cane fitted with genuine jungle cock feathers.

To complete your smoking, The Angler Pipe can be obtained with a tamper,
Why not? - or off course! The tamper is split cane, too, jungle cock mounted, and sterling silver ends.

The angler pipe: $ 350,-
Pipe tamper: $65,-
