A few months ago I purchased your “Standing Sitter” freehand from a well-known pipe seller on eBay and I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with this piece.
As a fan and collector of 1970’s Danish freehands this design really appealed to me. With its many angles and extended rim, this couldn’t have been an easy shape to execute yet it was done flawlessly. The stemwork is some of the finest I’ve seen and the briar insert is a marvelous t…ouch I wish more makers would utilize. Despite its size, the pipe is surprisingly lightweight and well balanced. The drilling is spot-on with the draught hole terminating perfectly at the bottom dead center of the chamber. Best of all, it smokes wonderfully cool and dry with an effortless open draw. Very nice indeed!
Athough I was unfamiliar with your work, I decided to take a chance and add the Standing Sitter to my collection anyway, it being such a unique and interesting piece. I’m very glad I did and I hope to enjoy a few more of your excellent and beautiful creations before long.

Thank you for the wonderful pipe. It is truly a piece of art. I took some time this evening and had a nice smoke from my new pipe. It smoked like a dream. Thank you for all your time over the last couple of days, and for all you do.
I’ve smoked 3 bowls with my Edwin so far and I’d like to report that I’m very happy with it! It looks and smokes great, and it has a nice, quality feel to it. This pipe is the perfect, relaxing end to a day at work. I forgot to ask you Thursday, but do you have an Edwin in your collection of personal smokers? If not, you should 🙂 Just sayin’.
You Sir, craft an amazing pipe! It’s like I’ve just used a pipe for the first time!
