The Nording Grain Series Freehand pipes come in a variety of options. But among the group, each features a brilliant, vertical grain pattern, high-quality briar, large bowl, and an army mount mouthpiece. The Grade #1 features the highest quality briar and grain, and it works down from there. But unless you're a serious collector, you probably won't even notice the difference. Either way, you’re in for a beautiful, highly-functional pipe that you'll use and cherish for years to come. It's Nording at his best, at a price that only CI can deliver.
