S Bang Pipes
S Bang is known for high quality briar pipes. Bang himself did not make many pipes, but was an excellent businessman who hired Per Hansen and Ulf Noltensmeier, to make the pipes instead. Both pipe makers had experience from working with other famous danish pipe makers.
They have their own separate style when they carve pipes, and their initials are stamped on every pipe, so the buyer can tell who has been making it.
Furthermore the pipes are stamped with a number that helps identify the pipe. For example, 1827 with the stamp UN would tell you that it was the 27th pipe made by Ulf Noltensmeier in 2018.
One thing two pipe makers do have in common, is the way the stems are made. They are all hand-cut and engineered the same way.
Per Hansen and Ulf Noltensmeier took over the company in 1984, and kept the name “S. Bang”.
