Elegant luxurious Danish pipe design for collectors and smokers. I am not a big supporter for smoking as it is unhealthy and very often very smelly.but if I should choose to be a smoker I think smoking a pipe and smoking pipe tobacco would probably be my choice as it smells wonderful and it always reminds me of an old clever grandfather sitting in a rocking chair telling interesting stories about life.
This is not what my blog post is about but it’s about the design of pipes. Yesterday I was celebrating Tom Eltang 40th anniversary in his shop with all of his other guests, a little outside of Copenhagen. He is and has been for 40 years, a brilliant and well-known pipe designer. Since he was quite young he has been designing pipes in various forms and shapes in the most amazing materials and handcrafted designs. A lot of his customers actually buys his pipes and never dare to smoke tobacco in them other than to display them as they are so beautiful and unique. He recently also started selling own tobacco.
At Eltangs 40th anniversary yesterday that what people from all over the country and of course from all over the world. And the air was filled with the sweet smell of pipe tobacco. We were served food, cheese, drinks and a lot of great conversations with both Tom and his fellow pipe smokers. I almost felt displaced because I was not smoking pipe ha ha! But everyone including Tom where very sweet and interesting people. Most of all I enjoyed seeing his shop where he crafts all his pipes thus witnessing all his designs. Here I share some of them with you. Enjoy!
