I'm new here but not completely new to pipes. I love collecting and the occasional smoke. My favorite pipes are the Danish free hands of Preben Holm, Ben Wade, Karl Eric, etc. I don't hear much here about them and I was wondering why ( Am I missing posts?) Most I've heard about were Sav's which are a very nice pipe indeed also and I wish I could afford one. I also here a lot about Dr, G's which is a bit puzzling to me. I don't look at them as a quality pipe but I may be wrong. But back to my main question, why don't I hear more about the free hands, are they not a quality pipe to some?
