Northern Briars Pickaxe # 13


Unexpectedly a Pickaxe from Ian. I probably should have anticipated it. At Chicago I saw him looking at a pipe on one of the Dane's tables and they chatted for a while. Ian being from Northern England is likely has some Viking ancestry. Maybe that explains it or is it that pipe makers always inspire each other.

This is one large Pickaxe and looks totally Danish. The shaping is excellent and the VG+ grain is complemented by a dark Grey/Black Brindle stem & silver band. Making it a very handsome & imposing piece.  Premier Group (4).
