Pipe Portrait: Super Grain – 61 by Kaywoodie

This pipe became part of my collection before me knowing its connection to my person and before recognising the reason for the visual attraction in the first place. This model was being produced in the year I was born and its design is for its inspiration and its time connected with a favorite automobile brand of mine: Saab.
