Viking Assens Morning draws upon Danish styling for the six shapes in this fresh line. Consisting of five bent models and one straight shape, these pipes sport a deep sandblast with a golden stain, accented in a warm brown tone. The shanks are adorned with a thin black and a wide bright metal band with durable black acrylic stems. These are fairly substantial briars with good thick walls to help deliver a comfortable smoke. Viking Assens Morning pipes perform great and look much more expensive than the price would indicate. It's time to take a whole new look at Viking.
