Nording Freehand Grade 1: This is a beautiful large freehand. Back in the 1970's Nording's grades were different. Current model high grades are a 20. Back then they were a 1. So this pipe was considered a high grade in it's day. And often times Erik made those high grades himself. I spoke to him about this as I have one in my collection. This pipe is a very nice example of the Danish Freehand shape. It is a large pipe with very nice grain all the way around. The stem has no noticeable tooth marks on top and only the very lightest marks on the bottom. The pipe was lightly smoked. The bowl has some scratches on the front left side and little marks here are there from use over the years. The "N" on the stem is faded but still readable as it is etched into the stem.
