Nording Compass Matte Pipes are another stylish and contemporary entry by Erik Nording. These pipes use briar bowls that are clad in satin-finished aluminum jackets, available in seven eye-catching colors. The lower parts of the bowls have a larger black sleeve that helps to stabilize the aluminum shanks, and those shanks are anodized to match the color of the bowl. The shank/tube allows the pipe to be easily disassembled even when warm without damaging the pipe, and they will store easily in a pocket when taken apart. Since the tubes are all one size, if you own more than one color you can swap the shanks to make attractive color combinations.
