A simple, elegant and impeccably executed bent Dublin by Teddy Knudsen. It's very similar to shapes made by Teddy's older brother Sven, with whom Teddy had been working in the "Dantonian Pipes" days, thus dating it to the early 1980's. I cannot understand why it would only have been graded as a Straight Grain 2, except as a reflection of Ole Larsen's famous "thriftiness" in assigning grades and thus contain the price paid to the carver. It has all the signature Teddy elements: the faceted bit, the internally chamfered tenon, the long tapered shank, and the convex rim.
Condition is impeccable and appears virtually unsmoked.
