Erik Nørding has probably produced more freehand pipes than any other pipe-maker.
In the late 60s he started to experiment with the possibility to give a pipe a unique and original look and feel instead of the shapes of the traditional English, Italian or French pipes.
When carving a freehand pipe, he tries as much as possible to follow the grain making creative choices when he as to deal with natural defects within the wood.
Nørding exclusively uses plateau wood for the Freehand Pipes, the outer part of the briar block where you find the most beautiful texture and appearance of the wood.
