In the 80's and 90's The Danish Pipe Shop sold a lot of pipes marked 'Bjarne'. The owner, Bjarne Nielsen, was a very hard working business man that had built up a worldwide brand with the Bjarne Pipes. What not many knew was that Bjarne never made any pipes. He had the contacts, salesmanship, and the ideas, so he had some good Danish pipe makers making the Bjarne marked pipes for him. The primary supplier was Mogens Johansen with the nickname "Johs". After Bjarne's death in 2008 it was obvious for Johs to start up by himself. All pipes from Johs are hand cut and unique. Note he makes both with and without filter (marked WF in our description).
