Erik Nording Compass (Natural Rustic) Poker
The Erik Nording Compass (Black Smooth) Poker pipe is certainly a pipe worth adding to the collection of both the connoisseur or beginner pipe smoker. This beautifully crafted briar bowl and aluminum stem are perfectly balanced and lightweight freestanding but with a hidden meaning on the base of the bowl. The runic compass or Vegvisir (Icelandic Vegvísir, "That Which Shows the Way;" pronounced "VEGG-vee-seer") is a Viking rune stave, a magical device used to aid in sea navigation. Today the symbol is found only in one modern Icelandic collection of spells, in which only one sentence is written: "If this sign is carried, one will never lose ones way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."
In the words of Erik Nording himself, (this being his personal favourite pipe to smoke)......
"So...with the Compass pipe in your mouth, you will never get lost"
