I fell in love with this pipe when I first saw photos of it. The bowl is Morta with three distinct colors, gold, chocolate and black. The bowl appears to be floating off the Beechwood shaft

Made from Morta and Beech from Germany by Pipemaker Manfred Hortig I'm keeping it smokey with some Dunhill Dark Flake.

The shank looks just like Masur Birch. Very distinctive wood. Nordic knife handles are very often Masur Birch. With that kind of grain pattern it would be considered premium grade if it was.

My memory was torn between Masur Birch and Beechwood but I believe you nailed it Blackhorse and I totally missed the boat on this one, regards.
