The Stanwell Hans Christian Andersen series might well be their most iconic line. All of them exhibit the graceful styling for which Stanwell is renowned, but with a unique twist. All of them come with a standard length and a churchwarden stem so you can enjoy your pipe when you're a bit more active, or when you have the time to lounge and relax. These pipes have been scarce in the past few years, so get them while you can!
The Hans Christian Andersen lines are available in three beautiful finishes; Sandblast,Smooth and Flawless. Stanwell has some of the best sandblast artisans today working in their factory. Each pipe is sandblasted according to the grain of the briar and no two pipes are sandblasted the same. The smooth pipes feature beautiful grain that is highlighted by a wide range of Stanwell stains. The Stanwell Flawless is the rarest pipe available. The briar block must be perfect with no sandpits or blemishes to be designated a Flawless. These pipes are pristine examples of the true beauty of briar.
